Applesauce galore!

2014_10_25_applesauce

Today I helped my friend Becky can applesauce… 90 quarts of it!  She had 350 lbs of apples, and we used the majority of them.  She had two steamer canners going all the time on a camp stove in the garage.  Helpers took turns chopping apples, slightly cooking them, running them through a food mill, and putting the applesauce in jars.  It was quite an undertaking, and I was glad to be just a helper.  :)  It was lots of fun, and now I have a dozen yummy applesauce jars to add to our pantry!
