September Ruby Harvest

The fruit has been dropping from our September Ruby apple tree the past few days. Now we have the happy pleasure of making applesauce this morning.

With fruit so sweet naturally it is unnecessary to add any sugar while cooking. Peeled and in a large saucepan, in very short order they 'melt' into a warm fragrant puddle, just begging to be topped with a dollop of yogurt (vanilla flavoured for me, plain for him) and a sprinkling of cinnamon.

Oh my... heaven right here in our kitchen!  It's life as it ought to be.

 Wishing you a beautiful day,

  1. Your sauce looks so good! I love apple harvest time and all the goodies it brings!!

  2. Love hot applesauce with a dollop of ice cream! Yum! Looks great!

  3. I can almost smell that applesauce from here! Had never heard of September Ruby so followed your link. So it's messy and labor intensive? :D

  4. Sure looked yummy!Wish i could join you, I will have vanilla yogurt too!!

  5. Looks good, bet it would be yummy with whipped cream too!
    Like your new pic. Just like one out of a Victorian Magazine.

  6. Wow, that does sound heavenly! It looks delicious. I love your blog header photo, too. :)

  7. Wowzers! I recognize your garden, but hardly. It does indeed look like a scene straight out of a magazine! Nicely done!

  8. Growing up in Michigan, we had several apple orchards near our home :) Your photo is so delish looking and has brought back memories!

    I had lost you/your blog when I left, but found you today, through my archives!

    I'll just have some "Motts Applesause" for lunch, and pretend it's fresh from the orchards,lol. Not the same but....

  9. You have such a beautiful backyard. It must be really nice to sit out there and enjoy the flowers and birds.
