Opal and Agathe deal with apples

Tree Bounty

Opal and Agathe stacked up apples from the back yard tree…

Chopped

…and supervised the washing, coring, peeling and chopping.

While the human got ready to cook down the apples, the twins observed that piles of peels lead to clouds of Fruit Flies!

Fair Warning

It’s only fair to warn the flies…

 …about our infallible trap, (a jar with the bait at the bottom of the jar, and a paper cone taped to the rim with a small hole at the bottom of the cone).

Applesauce!

Applesauce!

Finally the twins got to the part they like best – quality control testing the applesauce!

  1. Your applesauce looks delicious. Makes me hanker for pork loin, mashed yams and greens to go with it. YUM! Those pesky little fruit fly critters are so annoying. I thought it was “so Hitty like” to warn them beforehand of their demise if they entered their cone of death trap. Hittys are so considerate.

  2. apples! one of the best things about fall. We are about to make a batch of apple butter in the crock pot/slow cooker.
    Your applesauce is just lovely…as are the every delightful Agathe and Opal. the fruit fly trap is very clever!
