Apples are plentiful and cheap this time of year so it is time for an apple dessert.
OK, we have all had apple crisp but when I was growing up, I loved apple crumble. Apple crisp usually has oatmeal in the topping. Apple crumble is flour, butter and sugar made into an almost cookie like topping. I love both but a crumble takes me back to my youth. Continue reading Apple Crumble
We had a cold and wet July and it put my tomatoes behind. We are already getting frost here in the mountains. The net result is that I have a lot of green tomatoes. So, I was making my Green Tomato Mincemeat and thought I should remind all of you that this is a good way to use green tomatoes.
Also, have you ever tried replacing 1/3 of the apples in pie, cobbler or crisp with green tomatoes? Try it! It still tastes like apples but it has a touch of sour like green apples. It is really good.

Canning some of the peaches would let me have pie and cobblers this winter. It had to be done! Continue reading Bernardin Peach Pie Filling
