Fall Scents

September 25th, 2012 at 12:35 am

I'm going to brag a little here...our house smells marvelous!

OK, notice, I said our house, not me! :-)

A gal I work with offered me a bag of apples. It came from her mother's tree. She said she was hesitant to ask me because they weren't perfect with spots and bruises here and there, but then she realized I like to cook. The first thing I said was, "I can make applesauce!" She smiled and said exactly.

So, today she wended her way in the building with my much appreciated bag of apples.

As a teacher if you need to make a doctor's appointment during the school day, you have to either take a half a day or a full day off of sick time. I had a doctor's appointment for 1:30 so it meant I had to take a half of a day off. I got home, ate a quick lunch and then remember reading someone's blog that they made applesauce in their Crockpot. So, I washed the apples, cored and peeled them and put them in with a little lemon juice, water, a little sugar, cinnamon, and a dash of nutmeg.

Returning home the opening of the door was such a pleasant smelled like fall! Rich applesauce barely bubbling. I took out a potato masher and mashed them up and let them cook a little longer. Yowza!

I had put a turkey breast in another Crockpot this morning so with that also going, it almost smelled a little like Thanksgiving.

Ah. Fall Scents. Can't beat 'em.

    I love fall scents!!! I love the smell of apples cooking. My grandma taught me how to make homemade applesauce. I also love to cut up pumpkin and boil it and then put it in the freezer. I will save it for pumpkin pies later. I would love to learn how to make grape jelly and soap and candles!!!! I love Autumn!!! You mentioned the turkey making your house smell like Thanksgiving!!! That's wonderful!!! I can't wait for the Holidays!! Do you know how to make homemade cranberry sauce?
