Apple Pickin' Time


Nothing signals the last days of summer like fresh picked apples. Many of the apples we picked last weekend are now baked into pies and in the freezer to brighten some cold winter evening.

I’ll be taking a break from peeling and slicing tonight to transfer a few more of the 78s that Walt’s cousin Wes loaned us.

I love that about the end of summer/early fall...at the farm I used to work at we had huge applesauce making parties. We made hundreds of pounds of it and froze them for the next year. Mmm.

Yeah!

The Clinch Mountain Boys can always be counted on to play Bluegrass as She should be played. Great post, Ed!

MLS,
An applesauce making party sounds like a good time. The only thing that is better than putting food by for winter is sharing it with friends.

Dan,
You've got that right, my friend. Ralph Stanley and the Clinch Mountain Boys are one of Virginia's living treasures.
