i shouldn't have said that, should i?
I love that!
Btw, welcome to the world of apple butter.
And some trivia: when I was able to go the extra mile when it came to cooking and baking specialty dishes from scratch:
My favorites to make (before my accident):
• homemade pomegranate jelly (harvested the fruit from trees in a neighbor’s orchard in October annually)
• homemade fresh peach pies with lattice crust, everything from scratch (I’d go to a small town, Little Rock, in the upper desert of Antelope Valley, CA in summer when fruit stands of growers there when the fruit was perfectly ripe were selling big crates of free stones for pennies on the dollar)
There’s more, but these two were my top specialties, and I’d give a lot of the jellies & pies away to family & friends. I miss all that.
