Here's a way to use the entire apple in drying. I got the idea for Apple Dust from drying leftover skins from canning tomatoes. My dust has a lovely pink color & a light apple flavor. Perfect for mixing into yogurt, oatmeal & pancakes.
The last of the apples from the farmers market were calling my name and I knew I would be making cider, so I got off the tukhus and just did it. This is so easy to make I don't even think about it anymore.
Escaping highly processed foods, my stumbling block is often sweeteners. This forgotten colonial New England staple is a perfect solution; I can make it myself with no exotic equipment or ingredients, it's inexpensive, and easily organic
This conserve is similar to one I have been making for years, but a few tweaks make it safe for canning. Delicious with the traditional meal, it is also fantastic on sandwiches and heated and spooned over ice cream.
On a lovely fall day a few weeks ago, my friends and I made a big batch of cider. I’m fascinated with preserving food by making booze. I find cider particularly interesting because after the prep, the yeast does all the work for you.
