How do you like them apples?

A while back I was really into making apples with clay.  We just got a trailer full of stuff we had in storage from when we moved out of Ontario.  I was thrilled to just find these little guys!  the two on the left are raku, while the one on the right is a mix of glazes and underglazes.  They were formed using the pinch pot method then pounded into shape.  I absolutely love this technique for handbuilding!

Speaking of apples - something new I have tried is a recipe for apple pie filling in a jar.  A friend brought me a bunch of apples from her mothers orcharch in manitoba. I decided to try this recipe and I cannot tell you how happy I am with how it turned out and I am just thrilled to think that at any moment I can make an apple pie as simply as pouring this already made filling into a pastry!  It is so good we joke about eating it straigh out of the Jar!  Below is the link to the recipe and 'tis the season!
Oh and for $14 I bought an apple peeler that peels, slices, and cores the apples in a fast turning motion - it is so fantastic - fun for the kids to help out!  Who doesnt love apple pie!
