I have been extremely busy this morning since I didn't get all these veggies and apples I accumulated yesterday done or even started. Since I didn't have room in the refrigerator for any of these, this was a task I needed and wanted to get done today. I froze 6 quarts of carrots. I saved a bunch for later use to use as fresh. I also made an *apple crisp with the apples and *rice pudding ( from scratch, hey what the heck, I was on a roll here) I froze 4 quart bags of green pepper and saved a few choice nice ones to make stuffed green peppers with .As for the 2 huge heads of cabbage, I'm still not sure what to as of yet. I have really felt blessed this week when it comes to food. I am so thankful! I thought I would share my *rice pudding and* apple crisp recipe. Enjoy!
Place in buttered 10x6x2 baking dish 4 cups sliced apples. Sprinkle with 1 tsp Cinnamon, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 cup water
