balmy 80°F day.
The Grands and I made our annual pilgrimage to Kyle Carver Orchards in Cosby, Tenn.
We had lunch in the restaurant then, as usual, we bought more apples than we should have. ;)
This handy apple peeler-corer-slicer made quick work of the preparations for apple butter and fried apples. It has a lever that draws the rubber pad on the bottom up so it will suction to a countertop or other solid surface and remain stationary during use.
Love my kitchen tools.
Before we traveled to Virginia for the wedding that I'd made the mints for, I made turtles to add some culinary interest to the 4-hour trip.
The recipe is here if you're interested in making them for the holidays or just because they are sooo delicious.
The recipe makes a lot of them so you can half it if you like.
These rose petals are from our Peach Drift Roses, and they smell divine. I plan to use them in the next batch of soap I make.
Dyed sheep graze in pastures in Bathgate, Scotland for tourists to photograph and buzz about.
Hope you are having a lovely fall.
