But we spotted plastic snakes, used to scare off birds. My heart skipped a beat or two when we first spotted them, from a distance the snakes appear real.
We gathered 11-pounds of apples, which fit nicely in my large crock bowl. After eating several apples I began pondering what to make with the majority of our sweet bounty; and settled on apple sauce using the crock pot.
My handy apple peeler really saves times. The apples are not only peeled but sliced and cored at the same time.
The apples were placed in the crock pot with a little apple cider, also from the apple orchard, instead of water. And set on low to cook all night.
