Apples . . . .
First 2 bushels, and then a few days later, 3 bushels came into our house.
They were washed.
Then cored and trimmed, and cut into pieces, and then cooked in big kettles.
Finally it was time to set up the Victorio strainer.
Chad was THE MAN for helping turn it . . .
All my children worked hard.
We enjoyed seeing the fruit of our labors.
Well over 60 qts total of applesauce, plus 7 qts of apple pie filling, and qts of applebutter AND fresh applesauce that we ate.
So grateful for the food for this winter. It is very comforting to have some of my empty jars filled up once again.
