If you recall, we bought some lockers at MakeICT a few months ago. Many things came up and they sat unfinished by the Quonset Hut.
We have a few more to finish. We start with one like this.
Then the Husband grinds off the rust and paint.
Once the metal is cleaned up, we paint. The Husband’s first is blue for dangerous chemicals. Mine will be red and used for egg/honey sales materials.
Here is the final blue one.
In our messy, messy Quonset hut.
Also, how cute is our pupper?
In addition to the nectarines, I also got a three-pound bag of Jonathan apples.
I decided to make applesauce/pie filling. Nom.
So making applesauce is easy as pie.
Cut up the apples into chunks. In a saucepan, put some water, and the apples. Put in cinnamon and sugar to taste. We like tart, so we don’t put as much in. For a deeper flavor, you can add butter or vanilla, or a spice blend like Penzey’s Apple Pie Spice.
Some people like the peeler, corer, slicer contraption here,
But damned if I can get this thing to work on softer types of apples.
So simmer your apples and spices until soft. Mush them up to your desired chunkiness. I like some pieces, so I use a potato masher. You can put in a blender or food processor for smoother applesauce.
I pressure canned them, processing for 25 minutes.
See? Easy peasy.
We started getting eggs from the spring peeps. One, maybe two, are laying white eggs. So I think maybe leghorns.
