Summer goodness

A good friend of mine called on Saturday and gave me the number to her dad who in turn invited us out to his property so we could pick corn, apples, and pears. I ended up with a ton of corn and apples and about half a basket of pears. I canned 6 pints of pears, 3 quarts of applesauce, then dehydrated apples and pears. Last I blanched the corn and cut if off the cob to put in the freezer, I think I ended up with seven bags of corn, each bag I'm figuring with be the equivalent of 8 cans of corn from the store. Tomorrow I plan on making my famous apple cake! Yummy, it was such a blessing to have been given all that produce, apple season is upon us so we have many more bushels of apples to pick and can in our future.
