Apples – ready for pie, sauce and cake

My apple harvest is at high tide. The whole neighborhood has been talking about what a great apple year this is, so I am not alone.

Right now I am harvesting Liberty apples. We planted this Liberty tree in 1983. I think. We chose it because of its disease resistance. We have taken very little care of it, except for some not very expert pruning. This self-fertile tree continues to bear, and the fruit is remarkably unblemished with no spraying of any sort. It is a beautiful red apple, a Mcintosh hybrid and is delicious in hand, or in pies, crisps, and cakes. I make a pretty pink applesauce by boiling up cored apples with the skins, and  then putting the cooked apples through a food mill to get rid of the skins.
