I wanted to show you the two hats I knitted since last time; but guess what? I forgot to take photos while we had day light this weekend.
The days are so short now that when I am home from work there is not enough light. Wintertime forces me to plan my posts and photo taking rigorously (good-bye spontaneity).
Now I will have to wait until Saturday to take photos and show you the first two knitted hats from the hat marathon.
Instead of hats, today I’ll share photos from our apple-pealing, cutting and baking day a few weeks ago.
|Look at how concentrated she is while peeling and cutting those apples.|
We picked the last apples from our trees and made apple jam together with mini-pies.
after an hour of peeling and cutting
we could finally begin making the pies
We shared them with our neighbours who loved both the evening surprise and the smell of cinnamon and fresh from the oven apple pies (yes, we are those kind of neighbours...although to my defence, it is merely an altruistic return for all the times we have received either sour dough bread, Indian oven baked aubergines or apple crumble pie… Did I mention I LOVE my neighbourhood?).
The pies disappeared in a “swoosh”. The jam on the other hand, will be enjoy throughout the winter. Either as jam or as apple compote with Vanilla sauce, which is our favourite made-in-no-time dessert.
