I was a member of 4-H for about a year when I was around 11 years old. I took a cooking class and even competed in a cooking contest. Unfortunately, I did not win any recognition because the judges were not impressed with my jello salad.
Today's recipe is Pickled Crab Apples. I have a fondness for crab apples because my maternal grandmother had a huge crab apple tree that we cousins used for ammunition against each other. A cousin better be able to run pretty fast or they got pegged with a crab apple upside their head. (Not that I ever did that, of course).
I didn't realize until I was an adult, that people actually used crab apples for eating.
