Daniel, my Grandma Whitehead taught me how to squeeze the lard into the flour until the mixture was a lot of tiny balls. I had to stand on a chair to reach my bowl. Today, I just use my blender; I thin Grandma W would be using that tool as well, if she were alive.
Kathy, I did find a lot of different recipes for
sweet green peppers,
Put all through grinder,
put all in cloth to drain juice.
apple cider vinegar,
The recipes included a lot of other ingredients. So, I guess I will just guess at the procedure and quantities.
Yes, I think it was Barbara.
I've been seeing snow here for the past week and temperatures are dropping. It was 5 degrees Fahrenheit (negative 15 degrees Celsius) this morning.
Daniel, that's interesting that the apple symbol showed on your tablet, but not your laptop. I'm thinking I should refrain from posting symbols, as they may not show correctly on some computers.
The last year, I've been using the degree symbol on my temperature readings, and think now I should stop that also.
How many of you don't see the apple computer symbol here?
How many don't see the temperature degree symbol here? °
How many don't see the ohm symbol here? Ω
How many don't see the cent symbol here? ¢
Daniel, I didn't know, and was surprised that store apples were that far from tree ripened. Like you, I'm sure that I would like them much better if they were tree ripened.
After reading your post, I remember many years ago eating apples off of trees and enjoying them. But I enjoyed the tart ones best, and even ate some of the sweet ones before they were fully ripe, because they were sour.
If I ever get more land, I'll plant some. I think I have room here for a small crabapple. Do you think it's too late to take a cutting off of one I like and try rooting it?
You may remember that I tried it before from a crabapple that I found a little over a mile from here, and liked the taste of. Those cuttings never grew, but I tried it in the spring and you said I would probably have better results in the fall.
Kathy & Daniel, thanks for the welcome.
I enjoy seeing the posts from all you regulars, and miss the ones that disappeared, even though I don't mention it.
I've often wondered about one person in particular that stopped posting, because I may have had something to do with her dropping-out. I can't remember her name, but I think Joan said she communicated with her just after she quit the group, and I think quit gardening.
I was concerned that part of the reason she quit was because I said I bought the same garden cart she had, and had more negative things to say about it than positive.
Joan, is that one of the reasons she quit?
On my farm, we've planted an apple orchard a couple years ago. So we're hoping for some fruit in '17. Can't tell you what we planted! Nate (SIL) bought a whole bunch of apples to make cider. He's hosting an "open house" at his market this Sat. for a one day end of season event. I doubt if it'll be successful, but he and my daughter are the eternal optimists.
