One thing we love to do in the fall is pick pretty leaves and dip them in wax as a keepsake. They keep forever this way. I found one of my old beat up pans, that I keep as my wax pan. I just keep the pan in my basement and heat it up on low anytime I need it. Remember to heat low and slow. Then let the remaining wax harden again. One trick I found, espcially if you are using larger leaves, is to press them a few days first. Not till they are completly dry, just somewhat. That helps them not roll up as the leaves dry. Here is more info about how to wax leaves. Also I found this company the sells actual small wax leavesfor floating in water. But I do not see why you can not do the same thing with these leaves.
Also Mary posted her recipe for her harvest apple muffins, yummm. Thank you Mary !!
