We are lucky enough to know a person who has plenty of apple trees. So, in the fall, we pick the apples and can them in order to have apples all year. We add cinnamon, brown sugar, and vanilla to give it some flavor. When it’s time to fix a pie, we just open a jar and put it in a pie crust. The only problem today was that I only had one pie crust, so I readjusted my cooking technique.
