Packing

In between packing boxes in the kitchen, I am also trying to finish up canning projects before I don't have a stove in the house. I will have access to a kitchen nearby, but I'm hoping to not have to use it too often. I'm sure there will be a lot of take-out and some meals I don't have to cook (paté and cheese, for example). But apples are in season and we went apple picking yesterday, which means applesauce.

Usually we wait for the elderchild to be home from school in order to go picking. This year being different in so many ways, of course, means the elderchild does not get to come home at all until December. So yesterday we dodged a pretty impressive rainstorm (we literally got to the farm 5 minutes after it passed over us) and picked a half-bushel of mostly honeycrisp apples. Last night I made an apple crisp for dessert. Today I made a batch of applesauce. Five pints.

One of which will be dropped off to the elderchild later this morning. While it's still warm.
