Apples and Tomatoes
Yesterday I took care of the ripe tomatoes. I still have them trickling in, a few at a time. Some vines, for some reason have not frosted yet, but they only have small ones left on them. Just cooked up a big pan, sieved them, and stuck them in the freezer. Will taste good this winter, as I use tomatoes in a lot of dishes, mmm, chili, rice or macaroni dishes, stews, soups. I also had a 5 gallon pail of apples. They are a variety of Red Delicious, and wind blew every last one of them off the tree. (It was a small crop this year!) The deer stop and munch every day on their trek thru the yard, too. I put the good ones in the frig, and the rest I ran thru the peeler, doused them with a little sugar and cinnamon mixture and put them in the dehydrator. Really made the house smell good. They are ready this AM to be jarred up.
