What a busy Monday I have had! I didn't get to do much in the crafting department because all my efforts went to canning today. I did get the rest of my Tansy cut and I went to the post office and did some errands. My mom and dad and I (well pretty much mom and dad) canned beef, apple pie filling and salsa. My favorite meal in the world is canned beef with gravy and biscuits. It doesn't get any better than that. Thought I would share the apple pie filling recipe with you guys; it came from a Amish cookbook. Apple Pie Filling
12 cups of peeled, cored and sliced apples (Golden Delicious or Grimes work best)
5 cups white sugar
6 T. Tapioca
3 cups Water
Mix together and cold pack for 15 min. Don't make jars quite full.
Note: To cold pack means to put the filling in the jars cold. Make sure you get plenty of the juice in each jar so that it will seal properly :)Mom's Salsa
Mom & Dad's doggie Frieda!
Look what I got in the mail! Isn't it lovely? I purchased this wonderful baby quilt from http://www.auntpollysattic.com/ . I originally bought it to put on my coffee table but I just love the way it looks on my old pie safe door. It's so nicely made..........Thanks Teresa!
