If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing.

9 Ways to Preserve Apples at Home

(When I get excited a little bit of southern kicks in, itís just how I roll)

I happen to have almost 75 pounds of apples sitting in my kitchen and while most folks think of making applesauce, a fine thing applesauce, there are many ways to preserve those apples for use all year long. In fact, there are 9 ways to preserve apples at home to my way of thinking.
