With the change of season comes the urge to squirrel away food. For me, anyway. My garden didn’t do very well this year, although we had a ton of greens–and still do. I never got around to buying tomatoes from our farmer friends, and the fruit stand that usually supplies us with blueberries and strawberries never appeared.
At the end of the summer I bought a lot of peaches from Market Day Foods. I made a peach pie, then cut the rest up and froze them. After, of course, the boys stuffed themselves on sweet, juicy peaches.
The other thing I did was make applesauce. What screams “autumn” more than that? We picked apples from our neighbor’s tree, peeled and cored them, put them in a pot with a little water and a lot of cinnamon, and there you have it–applesauce.
We ate some, I canned some. My urge to put up food is almost sated.
