starting in on apples 2010

Apples are an all-American success story-each ...Image via Wikipedia
We went and picked apples from the east tree today -- about half of the tree so far. Came home, realized that a peeler/corer/slicer was DEFINITELY needed! So we ran out and got one. (used to have one 6 yrs ago, it disappeared)
Tonight we got 16 pints of apple slices done and 2 batches of apple butter going in the crock pots. Somehow I ended up with no quart jars to use and that's what I had wanted to can all this in, oh well - we'll get them from storage tomorrow and do the next batches in them.
Sad part is that we only got a third of the apples done so far =(  I think I'm gonna hate apples before this is through!
