Of Its Abundance

Of its abundance the crab apple tree yielded  its sweet flavor 
So that on our toast and waffles this ambrosia we might savor

Thank you, Lord, for this provision.

As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste. --Song of Solomon 2:3

Yummy! That about sums it up.

Shelly said...

Very well said.

Lin said...

And thank you to whoever made all that jam!

Grace said...

Not being domestic I am always amazed at people who do this...homemade jams and jellies are da bomb!

Vee, we do enjoy it!

Shelly, we appreciate our blessings.

Lin, there was a certain amount of time spent in the kitchen.

Grace, we do like what we make, but there are some good jams on the market for those who would rather not do it themselves.

Yellow crab apples! I found one roadside tree near here, but haven't tried doing anything with those fruits. Actually, I didn't have time to do much of that stuff at all this year.

Sharkey, you certainly have been busy this fall!
