The other night I was processing apples, apples, apples and this time instead of making applesauce I was freezing the slices for future apple pie… I was so proud of myself for coming up with a scam of putting the slices of apples in a ziplock bag then forming them into pie pan shapes for freezing, and sucking out all the air. Ha! Then all I had to do would be to thaw them out when the Dutchman gets home and wants real Colorado appel flappen. So I show my scam to my little girl and she says, “oh, mama! please make an apple pie, now!” Once she saw it, she had to have it! Well it was about 8 at night and of course I selfishly comply. Nothing like homemade apple pie with a thick glob of raw cream on top!
