How much is a "bushel" of apples anyway?


I felt that I really should know this... so I looked it up:



Here are some approximations to keep in mind when purchasing apples:

* 1 pound apples = 3 medium apples = 2 cups sliced

* 3 pounds apples = 8-9 medium apples = one 9 inch pie

* 1 peck apples = 10-12 pounds = 32 medium apples = 3-4 9-inch pies = 7-9 quarts frozen = 4 quarts canned

* 1 bushel apples = 48 pounds = 126 medium apples = 15 9-inch pies = 30-36 pints frozen = 16-19 quarts canned
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So I have approximately 1 BUSHEL of apples in my kitchen, and I gave a "peck" to Sarah yesterday... good to know.

A bushel of apples is actually 40lb according to some websites... hard to find the right answer, even with the internet...
