Board members, Merrill & Marie Detweiler were in Ohio last week to arrange for items to be delivered down here for the GEMS Annual Benefit Auction on Nov. 10. I asked them if they could bring back some apples for me to make sauce. I miss the crisp, fresh, delicious apples from the north!
The place where they bought them gave them a good deal and threw in some extras!
So this morning I got busy and made and froze some yummy applesauce. :)
I washed the apples.....
then cut off the stems and bottom ends.
Placed them in boiling water for a few minutes till they got soft.....
Then we ran them through the strainer. Danny was my helper. Tamara took a turn a time or two but I didn't get a picture of her.
When I helped my friend Angie make applesauce, I learned that if you ran the skins through a second time, you could get almost another cup of sauce off of them!! So that's what I did! Amazing~ It doesn't look appetizing, but it's just apples skins. :)
Fresh, hot applesauce!
Added a little sugar and cinnamon ....
mixed it up good.....
and put it in freezer boxes. :)
So thankful to have all that in my freezer! :)
Thanks Merrill & Marie, for blessing our family!
