from the farm to the table ~

Yesterday I spent all day in the kitchen canning apple jelly and baking apple pie.

ready for apple jelly

Being the first time ever making apple jelly, I had a little trouble, but it came out just right in the end.

After setting the jars on the kitchen table, the warmest glow came through the jars as the sunlight hit them through the window. What a nice reminder of what Fall gives us . . .

. . . and a nice apple pie just in time for dessert after dinner. This recipe requires about 4-5 hours of sitting to cool, it's so hard to wait but definately worth it in the end~!

Happy Fall to you!
