The carnage was everywhere.
My kitchen has still not fully recovered.
But I put up 6 quarts of apple pie filling and 6 pints of applesauce.
I just love how yellow and cheery these little jars of happiness are!
To make the pie filling, I used this recipe. And I added more cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and allspice, just to taste.
To make the applesauce:
I peeled most of the apples.
I cored them and cut them with an apple slicer, into 8 pieces.
I put them in about 4 cups of water.
I boiled them and boiled them and boiled them until they were super mushy.
I picked some of the skins out and then decided to give up on that.
I pureed them in my food processor.
I added some ascorbic acid to aid in the yellowness.
That's it. No sugar, no cinnamon. It is pure deliciousness.
I made jar tags and printed them on sticker paper.
Yummy, I can’t wait to make some apple crisp on a cold day!
