Little green apples

Little green apples on our old apple tree

A big ancient apple tree stands right in the middle of the meadow. Now that we’ve mowed some of the grass, I can actually get to the tree to see that it’s loaded with little green apples.

We have apple trees sprinkled around the farm, but we’ve never done anything with the fruit. Maybe now that this one tree is accessible this will be the year.

My friend made an amazing apple butter for us last year that Matt went bananas (does that even make sense?) for. Plus, apple sauces and butters and jellies don’t care how pretty (or, let’s be honest, not) our apples are. And these are pretty homegrown looking.

Although I don’t think I can take any credit. This tree has been doing very well all on its own.

Do you have any apple trees at your house? Any tree care tips to share? What about favourite recipes?

  1. Mmmmmmmm……apple butter! Whenever my trees get big enough to bear fruit, I will be making apple butter and applesauce!

  2. So pretty! I love applesauce. Something that’s fantastic is to cut up cheese into little squares and drop them into warm applesauce. They just start to melt, and it’s so absolutely delicious!!
