Now we are processing our three boxes (Yes, that is 120 pounds of apples). Before taking this on I checked with the kids. Did they want apple butter and apple chips this year? Yes! Were they willing to do the work, knowing that I was not up to doing much of the work? Yes! OK then. They have been pealing and coring our apples for the past few days. The little kids love to eat the long strings of apple peel (its our version of "fruit by the foot").
