Vicki I think we have all been there at one time or another. I just noticed the date and have to say I can't believe it has been so long since I have been in here. Vicki you will get your kitchen sorted eventually and now that you have reduced stock you will doubtless also find the time etc to put in your garden and those fruit trees.
As for apples, well this year my trees were having an off year in that we only had 1/2 dozen apples from one tree and half a bucket from another
I did manage to put up 1/2 dozen jars of breakfast apples (really a very chunky apple sauce style item) for DH who loves to have fruit on his breakfast.
Must have been an off year for all the trees this year really. If I remember I will call in at the orchards over in Donnybrook in a couple of weeks to see what cases of fruit I can get from there on my way home to make up the difference.
