    Apple show 2012 - done!

    Ok, this year's apple harvest got turned into Apple Bread, Yummy Crunchy Caramel Apple Pie, two different kinds of apple muffins, Best Apple Pie Jam, apple upside cakes, Apple and Black Currant Crumble Bars, Apple Harvest Oatmeal, and unsweetened as well as sweetened & cinnamon'd applesauce. I think I managed to successfully use a full 0,7% of the tree's bounty, and I don't want to eat another baked good featuring apples anytime soon, thank you very much. icon_lol.gif

    I miss my apple tree. When I bought this house, there was a heirloom variety that produced tart, very flavorful apples. A branch started to die back, my neighbor meant to be helpful and cut it down, but did it improperly and an infection set in, and the whole tree went. Have planted new ones twice, rabbits got the first one, the second one did not survive a bad winter. Now I am trying a peach tree - had about 10 peaches on it, the squirrels got all of them!

    You did very well by yours!

    I wish I knew what variety our apple tree is - one of the very old, Finnish ones for sure, as the tree is around 70 years old (as are the oldest bits of our house!). Having an apple tree is sooo exotic for me: I grew up in the north of the country where fruit trees simply don't grow, and as a child I always thought it was way cool that you could grow fruit in your garden in the south! icon_smile.gif

    Sorry to hear the squirrels got to your peaches first!! I hope that next year you will have an abundance of peaches and peachy goodies!

    Just came across an article about a woman who has managed to successfully grow a peach tree in Finland (!!), on the southern coast. She got a lot of fruit this year and doesn't know what to do with it all. Sounds familiar! icon_lol.gif She did say she has made jam but that it wasn't good - which makes me wonder: how can you manage to make bad peach jam? icon_eek.gif

    I cannot imagine a bad peach jam. Mother used to pick peaches from our tree, and apricots from the branches of the neighbor's tree that reached into our yard, and just cook them together in a big pot until it all got jammy. She just kept the bowl in the fridge and we would use it on everything. Yum.

    Perhaps this is something that would interest you for next year - apple cheese -

    What an fascinating recipe, I don't think I've ever seen anything like that before! That would be such an interesting alternative to jam.

    I remember it from childhood - mother did not make it, but some of my aunts and our neighbors did.

    It is rather like membrillo - the quince paste. I make that with the quinces from my tree. So delicious with cheese (the dairy kind!) - and I am sure the apple cheese would be also delicious with cheese.
