    Default My apples are good!

    I am quite amazed. The tree didn't produce for a couple of years. From my
    bedroom, I could see 4 apples. I assumed they were the only 4. But no.
    There are quite as few more, mainly on the lower branches. They are small
    but not as small as in past years. And no signs of scab! These apples do
    make very good sauce. Not sure that anyone here will eat it. I don't
    dislike applesauce. It's just that being a diabetic I have to portion out
    my carbs carefully and applesauce would never be at the top of my list. I
    do have someone I think I can give them to though.

    The only thing that was done to that tree was good pruning. The pear tree
    OTOH was butchered. My husband left all of the straight up branches and
    those are the ones that take in water. Seeing as how we've had no water,
    it's no wonder there are so many parched pears on it. They literally
    dehydrated on the tree! And the few branches that he did leave are so close
    together, it's no wonder that they got scab. I think he thought this would
    somehow kill the tree off. Nope.

    Our neighbour's horse got somehow free thanks to a distraction of his owner,
    they found it half a mile from here "working" on an apple tree. When he and
    his owner came home the horse had a really big smile

    how will you deal with the onerous task of peeling and cutting them, not to
    mention getting you kitchen accessories clean and all that trash you can't put
    down your garbage disposal?

    But since you buy the precut apples for your daughter, at least you
    know that she'll eat them, right? It might be a good time to show her
    how...

    OMG! Do I have to go through this again? Everyone in this house knows how
    to cut up apples. The apples on my tree are cooking apples. We like the
    precut ones because they are already bagged up and are pretreated. She can
    take them in her lunch or on a car trip and they will not go brown. I get
    the pre-cut ones at Costco or sometimes even for free with coupons. We just
    prefer the size of the bags of the Costco ones.

    Beans and other vegetables mostly. Some nuts and seeds. Some grains. A
    very little amount of meat. Olive oil. I eat a very healthy diet.

    Yes! I have seen numerous dieticians. Fruit isn't really necessary,
    especially for a diabetic which I am. I also have gastroparesis so most
    fruit doesn't digest well for me. About the only fruit that has stuff that
    can't be found in vegetables is berries. I do take tons of supplements and
    I take them for that. Blueberry leaf, powdered blueberries, Resveratrol,
    Grapeseed extract, Grapefruitseed Extract and Pterosteilbein (sp?). I run
    my diet through the Cron-O-Meter frequently to see what might be lacking.
    Mostly it is vitamin E which I also take. I am also tested at the Dr. for
    any deficiencies given all of my medial problems.

    last I looked, whole apples don't brown and come in all sorts of convenient
    sizes and varieties, not to mention they are cheaper, fresher and have no
    "treatment"

    I have no clue. My SIL told me what they were once but I don't remember.
    They are pretty small and are green with a red spot on them. I know they
    are cooking apples. And I know that they do make good sauce and pie.
