I had a cooking day with my friends and our plan was applesauce. Eileen and Janet trekked out to the orchards and picked up a bushel of apples. Eileen and the other Eileen peeled and peeled, Janet chopped, and I supervised. I'm good at that.
We added the apples and spices to a pot to simmer.
The recipe is from Food in Jars but we only used half the amount of spices. We also made a batch with no spices that was baked in the oven.
Lois was busy making a really tasty apple pie. Sorry, no pictures. We gobbled it up too fast. Here's the finished applesauce.
We each took home about 8 cups of applesauce to eat or freeze. Another tasty and productive cooking adventure with my friends.
