Apples and peaches

A Riddle . . .
What do you get when you cross a sink full of apples . . .

A counter full of peaches. . .

A family of busy bees in the kitchen . . .

A few sassy attitudes . . .

And a day of working together. . .

A hot stove and a few large pans???

You get a whole lot of winter satisfaction in the form of bright oranges globes floating in sweet, amber liquid.

And creamy sauce with just the right amount of sugar and spice.

And a great feeling of "look how we spent our weekend?"

Homemade applesauce and home canned peaches - it doesn't get much better than that!


  1. Oh yes...it does get better!...when you open a jar and grab a spoon!
    Nice work Millers!

  2. Wonderful job ladies. What a thrill having all that fruit done up! You are truly giving your girls a gift of a lifetime. Even though they don't realize it yet! In this era of cell phones and fast food there seems to be a lost art of homemaking.I've always been domestic and now to my surprise my adult daughter is too!! Good for you!! Be proud!!!
