After being gone for more than a week, it seemed that my garden and orchard had rather taken over the house. So, I girded my loins and set out to clean and tidy the kitchen. Then I proceeded to mess it all up again with a pot of tomatoes, the steam juicer for the grapes, a crockpot full of apple butter, and a dehydrator full of zucchini chips. lol
I added some red hots (cinnamon imperial) candies to the apple butter about half way through the cook time. The flavor was just barely there. Next time I think I will double the amount I put in.
As I like the red grape juice better, I decided to just mix the red and white grapes this go around in hopes that the red grape flavor would be more pervasive. It was a success.
I sliced the zucchini chips thinly and seasoned them 5 different ways. Our favorites were the Lawry’s seasoned salt and taco. I also quite liked the ranch flavored.
