My mother must have been reading my mind. Just as I was thinking about going apple picking, she called to ask if we wanted to go apple picking. We're meeting Saturday morning at the orchard. My sisters, brother and his wife and my niece will join us as well. We're packing a picnic lunch to save some money at the concession stand.
Later today, I'll be perusing the recipes in Ball Blue Book of Canning to help me decide how many apples to pick. This will be my first time canning apples. The best part is for the kids, its just a lot of fun.
