The Peeler

Apple Butter Day

My re-enactor neighbors were hosting an Apple Butter making day in their 1750's kitchen---Apple butter, a roasted chicken, boiled potatoes, pies and breads----

So here sits the gal who peeled a couple bushels of huge apples!

All sounds quite mouth watering, Jenn, and the display so well captured here with the cook's hands just OOF in the b/g.
Very nicely done.

This image has an old world charm to it.
The apple butter sounds wonderful.
I made apple crumbles today with a gift of small eating apples from
a friend's garden.
I kept the skins on!!!

Wow, this peeler must be a fast one if it's to be done all alone.
No apples here yet as the trees are only just comimg back into bud.
I made a rhubarb pie last week though for Sunday dinner. Then on Tuseday
we moved and seperated all the crowns into a new spot with enriched soil.
Good fun.

Good use of the dof, Jenn, slightly noisy image but beautifully composed. After your first mention of Apple Butter, I have found a supplier in the UK and await delivery. Grin

A wonderful homely image, one which brings back many fond memories when as kids we would go 'scrumpying' and come home with an arm full of apples and mum would make a delicious apple pie. This would be donned with lashings of clotted cream and devoured in earnest.

Peeled, but the cores left in. I don't know apple butter, must do some Googling.
Much more importantly this is superb, and exemplifies your style of reportage. Sympathetic, unintrusive, informing through delight.

Apple butter indeed? Great use if dof as already stated by a few, but its the mood it evokes for me, we could just be sat there in the 1750's I guess. Nice one Jenn.

I consider it very unfair of you telling us about that mouth-watering meal!! Looks like a mountain of apples to get through and a well composed and captured image, very much "in the mood".

Beautiful still life Jenn. My wife just bought me a nifty contraption that peels, cores and slices apples by turning a handle. Might come in handy here Wink

Sounds delicious, Jenn. My Mum used to make her own apple sauce to accompany roast pork, which was a favourite Sunday dinner at home. I guess the butter is sweeter?

Like the use of dof here, concentrating on the main ingredient, but the oof hands in the bg tell their own part of this story.

I would cheerfully take on task of peeling the apples for the chance of an invitation to that meal Joline. It sounds divine!!GrinGrinGrinGrin

How delicious and well taken and lit Jenn! You should enter this in the Pink Lady Apple Food Competition - you can find details on their website and there's money to be won! £5,000 first prize, I think. (A friend is one of the judges and runs the company in the UK.) I think this image is a winner!
