Free Apples!

Pure unadulterated apple sauce!  Thats how I like it.  Had about a bushel of apples, I think Granny Smith, given to me so I cooked up 2 kettles and when finished had one kettle full.  Made 6 quarts to freeze.  I just quarter and cut the core out and cook them till soft and run thru my food mill.  Very little waste and minimal effort.  I add a little cinnamon but sugar not needed.  Had to make a batch of apple crisp while I was into it.  The sauce will taste good this winter.  now I still have half a box left!

I did a similar thing with 1/2 bushel of peaches although I prepared mine for dehydrating. While at the farm market, I did buy a bushel of a"Paula Reds" to make applesauce (to can) and also dry some, too....slices and as applesauce fruit leather. :)

Oh, I made fruit leather once. Need to get that dehydrater out and do something with it.
