Apple picking 2021

September 28, 2021 - Reading time: ~1 minute

My original Silesian apple sauce is exceptionally delicious. The recipe is very simple. Peel the apples and then cut them into pieces. With a little water, cook the pieces until they fall apart. You have to stir well regularly so nothing gets burnt. Add a little sugar and cinnamon to suit taste. Lately I've been leaving out the sugar because I have to watch my weight. The most important thing about apple sauce, however, are the particularly good apples without bad spots. That starts with cultivation. The right irrigation is crucial so the apples get a firm flesh and the right size. The SMT100 soil moisture sensor, which I have installed in various places at different levels, helps me with this.

My irrigation system worked so well this year that I am already expanding it.

The harvest was accordingly good and I hardly manage to use all the apples for my delicious applesauce. My many grandchildren will help me with the tasting.

 


Where to buy the best thick shake?

It may sound a bit off topic, but I decided to share my experience in delicious food and drinks. As a passionate gardener I grow not only flowers but also vegetables and fruits, and of course I enjoy having good food. I came across many countries in the world and remember quite a number of unique spots. I start this series with my favourite shake supplier in the US which is Iceberg Drive Inn. The first restaurant open in 1960 in Salt Lake City.

My first experience with Icebergs was on a hot summer night in St. George, Utah. I came across Icebergs and decided to try their thick blueberry shake. It was incredible, both taste and size were amazing. Since that time I even take a longer detour just to enjoy the famous thick shake. My favourites are blueberry and strawberry.
