Many days I collapse in bed, giving up on my messy home (didn’t I just clean that?!) and wondering “What did I do all day?”
Not this day! On recent trips to Dillons, I’ve collected bag after bag of reduced apples. Three pound bags for 99¢ and $1.09 each. That’s 33¢-35¢ per pound for granny smith apples! What’s a girl to do with a bargain like that?
Using Laura’s simple method, I carved and cooked 27 pound of apples and made applesauce. And since I was on a roll (and was running out of containers to freeze it in — oh, how I long for jars and a canner!) I made some fruit leather overnight.
And… since my garden is spitting out zucchini with rapid fire motion, I thought I better shred some of that. Twenty-eight cups, to be exact.
Here’s what productivity looked like at the end of my day:
A productive day is a rare Finer Thing, as is storing up lots of natural (I didn’t add a thing to the apples) applesauce and zucchini for pennies, to eat throughout the year!
