David came home with 3 1/2 5 gallon buckets of apples that he picked off a tree that was standing in one of his students front yard. David is a special education school bus driver. It took him 10 hours to cut and core them all. He put 3 kitchen garbage bags of apple slices in the freezer. I had to decide what to do with them. Read on to find out what I do with them. I have now made applesauce with 41 pounds of apples and still have more. I started out with Keto friendly applesauce that the twins can eat, which means no sugar added.
I cooked the apples until are soft. Then I processed in my food processor.
After processing I put them in 1/2 and 1 pint jars.
I then made sure there was nothing on the rim and placed the lids on the jars. I had a lot of jars already, so I just needed the lids.
I then placed them into a water bath. This one below comes with the utensils that you will need too.
I processed for 20 minutes. You start timing when the water starts boiling. I then started cooking more apples.
Next I tried making some with some mixed berries.
I tried two different berry mixes I already had, strawberry blueberry, blackberry and raspberry, blueberry, blackberry. I cooked them until soft and then into the food processor.
Then into jars it goes to get processed in the water bath.
Next was a cinnamon applesauce. This is the cinnamon I used.
After days of canning I ended up with 42 jars of applesauce and I still have apples left that I need to do something with.
Well this will be Christmas presents and a nice treat during the winter.
