It's time for a food post. Since I made applesauce today, I figured that I would share the process of making applesauce. As long as you have a large pot and a food mill, making applesauce is an easy project.
|You start by quartering and coring your apples. For this batch, I used three quarts of apples.|
|One of the hints that I was given about making applesauce is that it is best to use more than one type of apple. For this project, I chose three types of apple. They are: Ruby Frost, Granny Smith, and Lady Alice (I like the name!).|
|The next step is to slice the apples. You'll want the slices to be fairly thin because they will cook faster.|
|Before cooking the apples, you'll boil water. For today's project, I boiled two cups of water. Once the water is boiled, you'll add the apples, turn the heat down to "medium," and cover the pot.|
|Check the apples every ten minutes. I always set a timer because I can be a bit scatter brained. The apples will cook down. Above in a picture of apples in the process of cooking down.|
