A s our regular readers know, I’ll go to my grave defending processed, pasteurized American cheese. I understand your objections to this position. I’ve heard all of the arguments. It’s bland. It’s lowbrow. Heck, it’s not even technically cheese , but more of a sciency slurry of milk, whey, milkfat, artificial flavorings and oil, dyed orange and laid flat in individually-wrapped squares of cellophane.
Sometimes, things just happen. You can't control them, try as you might. Life just takes control and you just need to let it run it's course, leaving behind the lessons that it may. Happy things, sad things, falling in and out of love and lust, births, and deaths. It's all part of the course, and we need to let things happen. I've been trying to just let things happen lately.

“Not everyone will like the caramel apple jam ,” Sarah commented to me after we made it. As much as I liked it, I knew she was right: it was very sweet and lacked the tartness that I often crave in my jellies and jams. So we decided to make another jelly/jam, this time doing something decidedly different: wine jelly . What’s “wine jelly”?
A few weeks ago, my wife stopped by a roadside stand where an individual was selling apples. A lot of apples. My wife asked if there were any deals, and the seller told her that he would sell her 8 1/2 pounds of “seconds” (apples that had been dropped and needed to be used quickly) for $8.

I am a lover of all things fall – from the leaves and pumpkins to cozy sweaters and Ugg boots, I adore it all – especially apple season. A neighboring city hosts an Apple Butter Festival every October. It’s full of holiday crafts, historical reenactments, and of course amazing food. Although I love meandering through the aisles of vendors, I really go for two very important reasons: caramel slathered apples and homemade apple butter. Unfortunately, I’ve missed this festival two years in a row – last year because I was in San Francisco and this year because I simply forgot about it. I sulked for a hot minute, but decided that I’d get my yearly apple butter fix by making my own.
What are Fruit Butters? Fruit butters are very yummy, dense "buttery" versions of fruit sauces. These fruit offerings are great for babies, toddlers and everyone else in the family!
I've mentioned before, I love my produce co op, but I think my apples have been multiplying in the drawer of the fridge. I've been debating about making some apply desserts, but that would just be to tempting to eat. Apple Butter is great for using up apples, but my son has been on an applesauce kick, so I thought this would be a treat for him to make our own. I had about 4 different kinds of apples on hand, which makes for better applesauce. I even threw in 4 pears for good measure.

But sometimes we even like to switch that up a bit, too (though I take baby steps into her world, since needle and thread aren’t my friends like they are hers.
Have you guys ever noticed how early morning comes? Seriously, I wouldn’t mind mornings quite so much, if they didn’t have to start so early. Here’s the thing, though. I’m actually quite a morning person. Once I’m awake, that’s it…I’m up for the day. And I’m mostly okay with that.
