We have an apple tree at one property but I didn't realize it was an apple tree until recently. I thought when it bloomed that it was just a crab apple tree but now we've got tons of little bitty apples. They would probably make good apple sauce, but I'm not sure I'm that ambitious. When I was a teenager, my family had a granny smith apple tree and my mom would do applesauce and apple pie filling. She would peel the apples, layer them with sugar and cinnamon in a gallon milk carton. Then when she wanted apples over the winter, she would cut a slice off the carton, remove the paper and thaw the apples.

Of course, at that time, I didn't appreciate all her hard work but now I would love to have some of mom's homemade apple spice cake. Yum!

here you go Kimdee24 :) this is from the Ball Blue Book.
Apple Chutney
2 quarts chopped, cored, pared, tart apples (about 16 medium)
2 pounds raisins
1 cup chopped onion (about 1 medium)
1 cup chopped sweet red peppers (about 2 medium)
4 cups brown sugar
3 tablespoons mustard seed
2 tablespoons ginger
2 teaspoons allspice
2 teaspoons salt
2 hot red peppers
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 quart vinegar

Combine all ingredients in a large sauce pot. Simmer until thick, about 1 hour and 15 minutes. As mixture thickens, stir frequently to prevent sticking. Pour into hot jars. leaving 1/4 inch head space. Adjust caps. Process 10 minutes in boiling water bath. Yield: about 10 pints.
Note: for a milder chutney, another quart of chopped apples may be used.

Went to see our new Granddaughter...she is lovely. Kamber Amalia. We bid 1500-1750 on box depending on finishing work needed, got asked to quote a new kitchen install & crown moulding job too. A good day thus far! How is everyone doing today?

Congratulations Grandma!!!! What a cool name. Hope everyone is healthy and happy :)
Glad you upped it a bit on the DJ booth build, it's a much more involving project and I wouldn't want to see you guys cheated. Even if you're the guys setting price and cheating yourselves, lol. Good luck getting the other job too. :)
Glad you sound like you're in a better place today. :)

Good afternoon all. Trying to find my get up and go to make some cupcakes and a few other goodies for work tonight. Tomorrow is the service for my coworker and the mood around work has been very down all week. Going to try to bring a bit of sunshine to our last night shift.

Congrats Grandma Jayme! So exciting!!!

Thanks for the congrats everyone! I misspelled her middle name, it's "Amalia" vs. "Arailia". IDK I may light Aralia better..lol
My daughter & baby are doing well.
-Mforr...we left a little wiggle room since there was not complete info to bid with.
Have not heard back yet, maybe we won't. But IDK who else would mess with it for under 1500. Lots of cutting and trimming to do, plus to install countertops, etc.
The cost is less than the average to build a deck & there is a lot more to do.

CONGRATS GRADMA :) Love the name Kamber. Gee Jayme, I didn't know you were expecting a Grandbabie, is this your first one?

Hope all goes well for you tonight Robin. Maybe the nonsense between co-wokers will stop, now that everyone should have given there head a shake. Life's to short to be treating people badly. I'll be thinking of you, stay strong, like you are. xoxoxox

Poowee to raspberry, I see tequila or vodka. Juice is for kids hahahaha My oh my, I could use that right now!!!!

Michele, check if you can see that idea book now, I changed some settings.

Jayme - Kamber is a neat name...my kids have unusual names too. My daughter's middle name is "Alene" which is almost a namesake to my father "Arlan" and his first cousin "Arlene" One time when she was around 6 or 7, she did some project and wrote her full name on a paper. Unfortunately, she didn't know how to spell her middle name - so she wrote it as "ALIEN" We all got a laugh out of that, but we don't tell that story much because she doesn't see the humor in it (yet). My mom's middle name is "Amelia" which was a name from a couple generations back in her family, but I think it was actually from Amelia Earheart (Kansas girl!)

Little babies are so tiny and precious - it is almost impossible to remember how tiny they are and how fast they change. Perhaps that has something to do with the sleep deprivation

Maybe there won't be a delay this time. I'm still waiting on news on fireplace and tile. C'mon girl. I'm only joking, don't get stressed. You can do it tomorrow if you don't have time tonight. :)

Oh, my sister started taking some kind of joint supplement with shark cartilage. She said it took about 6 weeks before she noticed the difference but what a difference it made. Might want to try something like that if it keeps up.

Thanks everyone...we love her...It's Kamber, as in amber sounding. Middle name is the father's Grandma's name.
@Ironwood...Thank you, what a nice compliment, espec. since I am a crab ass today...makes my day! I almost rang your bell in re: bidding on that wretched Disc Jockey box/platform thing. It is such a weird piece to bid. Also I felt we were lacking information such as exact size, placement & what the aspects of the finishing were to be...did try to get more info out of them, and they r sorta not sure I don't think.
-So you found out about that certain someone....who I shall not name...I avoid all threads when I see he's there!!

Omg, Robin! Arrived at the hospital just in time? Have you ever delivered a baby? You do deserve a cupcake!

Michele & Candace -- Sometimes I wish I had a WD40 port... heat makes it worse actually, what I need to do is make an ice pack. It's probably partly the rain but also because I've been sitting at my desk working all day long, and I probably shouldn't sit cross legged, either.

I'm beat... been a long day. 6.5 full billable hours (which might not sound a like a lot but it is) today.
