{this moment}





A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment to pause, savor and remember.

    Happy compost pile?

  2. Happy chickens, happy rabbits, AND happy compost pile. That said, the next plan is to use the peels and cores to make vinegar. That's the plan, but it hasn't been implemented, and so I don't have any answers on how, yet, but if/when it happens, I'll be sure to share my experience ;).

  3. That would be great to make vinegar out of it. I've become super interested in it since I found out cider vinegar is great for stomach issues.

    Forgot the rabbits. haha.

  4. Oh, we could probably still share some with the rabbits. Afterall, they feed us ;).

  5. I made apple syrup with the peels last year.. It was delicious!! My kids didn't like it though. Just take the peels and shove 'em in a pot, add about a cup or 2 of water and let it boil. Strain the peels and then to the water you're supposed to add sugar, I think, I have to look up the recipe again. I plan to make it again, for me, because -I- liked it.

  6. I made a bunch of apple syrup this year too...by mistake. I was hoping for apple jelly. Ah well. It's delish on waffles!

    I immediately thought "apple butter" when I saw the pic!

  7. Kaye, that's funny! Often my strawberry jam is a little syrupy - but my girls still manage to make it into sandwiches ;).

    This just occurred to me: I wonder if anyone has tried apple juice concentrate from the peels? Can it like you do applesauce, and then when ready to use, dilute it with water (or fizzy water??) and drink .... Hmm? I may have to try this.
