    The kid is smarter than he looks (and some adults).

    Smashing them is fun, but collect enough to do this when you get home.

    Loved the recipe.
    For the record, it’s not bees, it is wasps/yellow jackets.

    It’s that time of the year already. I was mowing last evening, and trying not to drive over fallen crabapples. The bees were not far behind when I did smoosh a couple.

    And yes, it IS bees.

    When I was a kid, we had a technical term for crabapples:

    Ammo.

    @Alexikakos

    Don’t waste time on this recipe. I use equal amounts of sugar to match the juice.

    I’ve never seen honey bees in fruit; but the yellow jackets love it.
    I’ve seen them crawl out of over ripe apples and fall off onto the ground. Not sure how much ethanol it takes to get one blitzed.

    People. People. People. It can be both bees AND wasps.

    Ah… Another left handed golfer… which gives me the sense that Frazz’s creator is left handed! If Jef is a lefty, I hope he doesn’t swing his driver like a mallet.

    I never saw anyone cook and eat crab apples. Our neighborhood was only poor enough for everyone to be unambitious. But not poor enough to for anyone to strive. Gardens and cooking food from scratch was considered to be too much. It just wasn’t worth it for the mothers who had been in lively social circles when younger and now were depressed about being shut into a stultifying tract home development with no possibility of female companionship except other shy depressed women. The masculine extroverted women who ran their social circles when they were younger had gone to more ambitious situations. These introverted shy women were left to wallow in their own unhappiness. They slept all day.
