  2. Oooh,I am going to write that recipe down right away! I feel ashamed to admit this,but after living on our property for going on 9 years,i am finally using the apples off our tree. It just takes a little longer cutting around the bad spots,because we try to go the organic route as much as possible and so haven't sprayed the tree at all. I'm home from church this morning because my youngest is sick,but feel like I could comment on each post of yours! Praying that your family has blessed day! Beth
