Apple overload

My sister and I went up to Ellijay to the apple orchards a few weekends ago and I came home with four bushels of apples. Do you realize how many apples that is? Let's just say I was up to my elbows in apples. Thanks to my wonderful Mom, she came over last week to help me peel them and make my kid's favorite .... applesauce. I froze some of the that (isn't it beautiful?) and then made some apple butter with the rest. I ended up with 22 pints. Chuck, my #3, is the one with the biggest love of apple butter. His absolute favorite thing to eat is a peanut butter and apple butter sandwich. When I finally finished canning he exclaimed, "Tomorrow, we'll be eating like kings!"
