In my Kitchen this week
As we continue to eat seasonally, this week has been busy with making dehydrated apple chips from the apples I harvested (we don't really know all the varieties we have). I was gifted a very nice dehydrator for Christmas last year, but this is really the first crop I've had enough to dry some of it.
I have about 6 of these that I grew this year, and then I was also handed a bag of already peeled and chopped sugar pumpkin that was left-over from a church dinner. So, it's time to bake with pumpkin!
My kids requested pumpkin muffins with cream cheese filling, and so I made a double batch this weekend, and then froze half of the muffins for later. I had enough left-over pumpkin puree to end up freezing some of it too, so there is plenty more pumpkin in our dietary near future.
Going with the seasons and mostly cooking what needs using up right now. :)
