I heard that many of the apples we buy at the grocery store are 1 year old!!  WHAT?!?  I mean seriously who wants to eat 1 year old apples?  That is why I drove an hour to the Apple Orchard.  In about 15 minutes of picking I was able to get 37 pounds of apples for $37.  Pretty good deal in my opinion!

So now what to do with all my apples?  First I wanted to make dehydrated apple slices.  I sliced the apples and soaked in lemon juice with a few drops of OnGuard essential oil.  (Good for immunity boosting!)

The dehydrated apple slices turned out YUMMY!  My hubby says they are too sour but I love them!

Well I can’t let all the cores and peels go to waste!  So I decided to try my hand at apple cider vinegar.  It will take about 6 weeks to get the finally results so stay tune!!

37 pounds of apples turned into 13 quarts of apple slices canned and ready for pies or snacks this winter.  3 quarts of dehydrated apple slice (think I can eat them instead of potato chips?) 6 quarts of apple cider vinegar in the making.  And a few dozen apples left to snack on.

I would love to hear about your week!
