My Father, the Fruit Pusher


Johnny Appleseed's got nothing on my dad. He has in his urban backyard roughly 30 fruit trees, and most of them are apple trees. Throughout the year he unloads bag upon bag of plums, apricots, blackberries, pears, and lemons, but nothing compares to the fall when he harvests the apples. Last week my parents paid me a visit in which my mother gave me this hilarious article, and my father gave me SIXTY POUNDS of apples. So naturally, I decided to make apple sauce. Check out my recipe blog for the details- it took me three and a half hours to peel just half of the apples, which filled a 20-quart pot!

Tech stuff: yr link to p&pmr isn't working....also, p&pmr doesn't have no applesauce on it. What gives? I have had enough lies for one day.
