Homemade Apple Pie Filling

Homemade Apple Pie Filling Bottled I love the smell of a fresh apple pie cooking in the oven when the weather is turning cooler outside. And I especially love making this homemade Apple Pie Filling because once it’s completed it’s so easy to put an apple pie in the oven within minutes.

When making this recipe, I used to peel, core and cut all of my apples using a knife, but I finally invested in a Johnny Apple Peeler. I wish I would have purchased it years ago because it would have saved me so much time! It peels, cores and slices the apples and really makes the process of adding the apples to the jars so much faster. And my little ones love helping me use the apple peeler. It’s a good product you’ll want to look into having if you plan to make homemade apple pie every year.

Delicious Homemade Bottled Salsa

Homemade Bottled SalsaMy family and I love homemade salsa! And this year, my sister-in-law shared a new salsa recipe with me that I’ve been wanting to make all year. Our tomatoes finally came on and I’ve made four batches of this homemade salsa so far. I’m planning on doing a few more batches to stock us up for the winter.

If you haven’t canned salsa before, it’s so easy. You do need to pick up some supplies such as a water-bath canner. Both Amazon and Walmart have canners for about $20-$26. I also recommend purchasing a Home Canning Utensil Set, which is about $13. The utensil set makes it easier to can items. You’ll also need pint-size jars with rings and lids, and you’ll be ready to go. Here’s the recipe for the Homemade Salsa and a basic step-by-step process to can salsa.

How to Make Fruit Leather

Fruit Leather Final

A friend of mine let me pick peaches from her tree this past week, so I’ve been busy making Peach Jam and Peach Fruit Leather. I also love making this Easy Peach Cobbler.

Purchasing fruit leather or roll-ups from the store is more expensive than just making it yourself. This homemade fruit leather recipe is very simple and it makes a healthy snack. I made it using peaches, but you can use any fruit of your choice such as raspberries or strawberries. Here’s how to make fruit leather:
