Did you know that not only are crab apples a home remedy for constipation, but jelly can be made from crab apples? While varieties like the Red Siberian crab apple are great to combine with apples for making apple cider, there are also many other varieties of crab apples. Some are more common for consumption while others are typically ornamental. Most people do not use the ornamental crab apples because they are so small and tedious to use, but they are edible and since that is what we had we decided to put them to use.
- Summers Acres
We are a husband and wife duo with 5 kids, 4 boys and 1 girl. Our kids are growing up fast and only the 2 youngest are still in high school. Our journey began at our 1700 square feet home with just over 1 acre of land. God has blessed us greatly and we recently purchased and moved into our farmhouse and 14 acres of beautiful farm land in Ann’s hometown. Over the years God has compelled us to cultivate a simpler, less busy, and more joyful life. That is a process that takes time with one new learned skill or one simplification or change at a time. We love our chickens and goats and the benefits they provide us for a healthier more natural diet. We enjoy gardening to raise our own food, but also appreciate the therapeutic qualities of getting our hands in the dirt. We are not masters at any of this, but have learned a lot in our journey.
