Maw Stoots Got The Blues Brew: For those rainy day blues, here’s an apple a day to keep the doctor away drink. A great old homeopathic remedy to help you feel relaxed and warm inside.
Preparation time: 4 hours to prepare, add 6 hours to allow mixture to stand before serving
2 quarts cut apples
4 quarts water
3 tablespoon white vinegar
2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 orange, cut into small pieces.
3 cups of sugar
Makes about 4 quarts of brew.
Freshly picked apples are best. Harvest enough to make 2 quarts of cubed apples.
Core the apples, but do not skin them.
Wash the apples in cold water then slice them into 1 inch cubes.
Select a large orange and peal the rein.
Separate the slices and if necessary, remove the seeds.
In a large stew pot, mix the water and sugar to boiling for about 1 minute.
Reduce heat and allow the mixture to cool slightly.
Add the cut apples and cook for approximately 3 hours. Stirring often. But do not let mixture come to a strong boil.
Add white vinegar and orange slices. Allow to simmer for 30 minutes. Stirring frequently.
Turn off heat and let mixture cool upon the stove.
Once cooled, strain the mixture through a double ply cheesecloth, squeezing the leftover fruit pieces to remove all the juice.
Pour the liquid into a jug, such as a glass cider jug.
Cover with a lid, but DO NOT screw the cap down tightly.
Store in your refrigerator.
Drink over ice, or you can warm single cups adding a cinnamon stick for additional flavor.
The Left Overs You don’t have to throw away the ‘mushed’ apples and oranges. Use these leftovers to make a taste apple sauce.
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Drop the leftover fruit from the cheese cloth onto a large cookie sheet.
Using a spoon or potato masher, flatten the leftovers over the sheet.
At this point it should be fairly easy to find the remaining orange skins and remove them from the mixture.
Return the remaining ingredients to the pot.
Add 2 cups of water and ½ cup brown sugar.
Cook over medium heat, stirring the brown sugar into mixture until melted.

Add The Schedule To YOUR Calendar
NASCAR has made it easy for you to never miss a race in 2015! That’s right, you can now add race events to your Google, Apple or Outlook calendars complete with a preset 15 minute reminder.
Personally I don’t think 15 minutes is long enough to get ready for a race, but ok. You can edit the events and add an earlier reminder once it’s in your calendar.
So how do you do that? NASCAR hooked up with CalReply, a Calendaring platform that enables TV networks, pro-sporting leagues and businesses to enable fans and viewers to subscribe to event schedules via their mobile calendars. Continue reading →
