Apples continue to be a theme in our everyday life, so it should come as no surprise that apples are going to be a theme here too.
A co-worker of Jeff’s extolled the virtues of one of these peeling, coring, slicing machines. I’ve seen them before and swooned over them but never felt like I really “needed” one. Well, Jeff bought me one and my goodness, I did need it. This little hand crank machine makes it so easy and fast and now my slices are uniform when they go into the dehydrator. While, it’s not a strictly necessary piece of equipment, I’m grateful for it and how it helps me get the apples done.
Last night we soaked apple chunks in brandy & vodka, and peels of slices that went into the dehydrator in water to make vinegar. Here’s hoping it all turns out in a few months.
I’m not the only person with apples on the brain, check out these great apple related reads:
