APPLE PICKLES......... Apples.....sweet, tart and so versatile.....Apple Pickles.....you bet!



Apple season is upon us,  the long hot summer we have has helped the apple crop to shine....  the apples are amazing. Thank you to my friends Tina and Geoff for sharing their apples with me so that I can share this post. I came across a recipe for these Apple Pickles, they are crispy, a bit sweet and a bit sour......reminds me of an apple pie in pickle form. Great as a snack, in a peanut butter sandwich or served with some perogies or a simple cheese soufflé. Make up a jar for your family and friends.
Happy September.

“If you're really listening,
if you're awake to the poignant beauty of the world,
your heart breaks regularly.
In fact, your heart is made to break;
its purpose is to burst open again and again
so that it can hold evermore wonders.”
