Three different types of apples, peeled and chunked and cooked on the stove top to make applesauce -nothing added, just apples. Last farm box delivery had three bags of apples. A lot of apples.
Here is Martha Rose Shulman’s recipe for Braised Red Cabbage and Apples from the NYTimes
Immersion blender smoothed it out. All those apples cooked down to four jars.
One of my favorite photos.

It’s been a fun week of colorful collages.
Once I got started it was hard to stop.
A lot of response was generated by the different colors and it’s made me see the trend in my photography, color wise, what I’m drawn to….besides the human element. The clothes we choose, our dishes, the bed linens and artwork which surround us in our lives. Many have commented on which color is their favorite.
Right now everywhere I look it is green green green We’ve had a lot of rain.
