Did I mention that I pulled in the last of the apples? Total from the
Arkansas Black was right at 20 pounds, which is just under half a bushel
or about 2 pecks. I didn't think that was too bad for a first harvest
from an 8 year old tree(semi-dwarf, currently mature height at
approximately 15' tall)
Tomorrow I plan to slice them up and make pie filling/cobbler filing.
I'll probably mix a bit of pears into some, maybe make a few quarts of a
blueberry apple mix. Does anyone have any other, unique ideas using
apples that will go for pie and cobbler? I have plenty of pears and
blueberries, don't need applesauce..
