Apple Saucing…yum…

We have a number of apple trees on the property that grow really great apples.  Since we didn’t have much of a harvest last year we decided to take advantage of the abundant amount of apples this year and make apple sauce. Yum.  We have the niftiest little machine to do this…The Saucer 🙂

We had lots of apples, so into the sink to wash first…

Apple bobbing anyone?

Then once they are washed, we sliced them up and into a pot to turn to mush.

Once the apples are soft its into The Saucer.  The sauce squashes out one part and the rest of the goop (peels, seeds, stems) comes out the other.

The ladies really like the goop…no part gone to waste 🙂

Then magically there is jars of sauce!

Okay, it took a bit more work, but that wouldn’t make for the most exciting blog.

We also put aside some of the larger apples to slice and put into the freezer.  Some of them were as large as some you buy at the grocery store…actually I’ve bought smaller ones…

I can’t wait to eat the sauce, yum…although I guess we should finish up the sauce from 2007 first…

Happy Quilting!
