Apples Apples Apples

What a year for apples. My trees were so full that the branches touched the ground. So what does one do when gifted with hundreds of delicious, organic apples? The answer is make applesauce. Homemade applesauce is high in Vitamin C and will keep you heathy all season. And it is easy to make. All you need to do is wash the apples, quarter cut them, and then  cook until they soften. I put about an inch of water in a large pot, cover and let the apples soften on medium heat. I then put them in a squeezo, the best tool in my kitchen during harvest season. It separates the peel and core from the pulp. Within minutes, I am eating yummy applesauce. A bit of maple syrup is allowed if you want to sweeten but I like mine pure. Applesauce also freezes well and a comfort to know there is a supply whether you are having it for breakfast, dinner, or dessert. One more thing to remember - it is inexpensive to make your own. I saw about a half pint of homemade applesauce in a grocery store that cost $4.32. YIKES!!!!
