About 2 weeks ago I ordered a 40 pound box of fuji apples from Bountiful Baskets for $23.00. It was such a good deal, and last time we did this we ate them all up in no time. I guess now the kids are a bit sick of raw apples and I still had half of the box left. It was time to do something with them before they got mushy.
So I got to work washing:
and put the mess into my food processor to puree the mashed apples.
I added a little cinnamon and filled 3 jars with this deliciousness!
Put them in the steam canner to process for 20 minutes.
Here is my loot. Three quarts of applesauce and two quarts of apple juice. I drank a glass of the apple juice just now and it's like nectar. It's so sweet and tasty! The applesauce is also very delicious.
I have quite a few apples left, and I think tomorrow I will be dehydrating them and adding some to my homemade granola! Click on the link for the recipe, it is divine!
