Three Quarts

That's how much applesauce 13 large apples makes.

Today's applesauce was a bunch of golden delicious (I think) and some other kind of apple which was mostly green.  I did the usual thing, boiling them with the skins, but since the skins aren't red, the applesauce isn't pink.  It's yellow, like the applesauce in the store.  I added about 2 cups of sugar to the pot full - I say "about" because there was only a small amount left in the bag and I just dumped it in!

My in-laws just left for home, and I'm sad.  I like having them here.  But, of course, I couldn't let them go empty-handed!  They went home with 6 jars of jams, salsa and pickles to enjoy.  Be safe on your travels!

  1. You always make me happy with your incessant productivity. Mostly because I am in no way productive at ALL anymore.

    Glad one of us is squared away. :)

    Thinking fondly of you during this beautiful autumn,
