Saturday was the Great Perogie Making Day at the homestead. Beth, Emily, Jan, Peter, Madeleine, Jen and Amanda spent the afternoon a delicious assortment of our traditional family perogies. It was a great deal of work but LOTS of fun too! Amanda has the magic touch for mastering the dough. It comes out tender and fries up like a puff pastry, Aunt Jean and Bopshe would be proud!
Jim and Sarah have started their own tradition making BIG batches of applesauce. Peter was our apple washer and I think he enjoyed it a bit too much? Na, he had fun too.
Jim and Sarah starting off and when they were down with this batch today they have over 24 quarts of warm yummy applesauce. It is amazing, everyone raves over it and it is simply SEVERAL different types of apples, a cup of cider to begin the cooking process and LOTS of cinnamon. No sugar at all.

So every couple of years Jim gathers his many collections of metals and takes it to a scrap yard. I asked him if I could go along and he was surprised and said, sure. He fitted me in clothes that could get caught and torn while unloading and we were off.
More STUFF that was under the aluminum.
Everything unloaded and waiting to get a cart and hit the scale.
