Our canning season is still going strong. We went to the apple orchard this fall and bought some honey crisp apples. We usually get the seconds as they are cheaper in price. I received an email from the orchard we usually go to that they had a BOGO sale going on, which is buy one box, get one box free. Since it was busy here this fall, but who am I kidding, it's a ALWAYS busy here, but since I was busy I didn't get to the apples right away so we lost a few to rotting. BUT, I was able to make applesauce out of the remaining good apples. We really didn't lose that many but it sure seemed like it at the time I was going through them.
This time before I cooked the apples I peeled them. Oh my goodness, I will always and forever do that when I make applesauce again.
It was so much easier when I was putting the apples through the sieve, I was not fighting the peelings.
Twenty-four pints of delicious applesauce ready to be put down with all the other canning we did this fall.
I not only canned the applesauce, Jim and I canned more venison stew from the deer he got and the potatoes, onions, and carrots we grew in our garden this year.
Earlier in the fall we canned our peppers and potatoes and made tomato sauce with the tomatoes we picked. When I say we, I do mean both of us. I am very fortunate to have a husband who enjoys canning as much as I do.
