Finally, apples to make applesauce! We were given apples from friends who were blessed with a bumper crop this year. Some went into pies, some were dried and the rest went to applesauce! It's so yummy; not too sweet, but a perfect side at supper.
Ben did about three manual turns on the Victorio strainer and got his drill out.
Mmm, taste testing!
Ben did all the turning, ladling and canning outside while I washed, chopped and cooked the apples inside. We did 22 quart jars for ourselves, 19 pints for my parents and sister. It took us about four hours start to finish. Have I mentioned I love working with Ben? He's kind of great.
