How to Can Homemade Applesauce
By Daisy Luther
When life gives you apples, make applesauce!
I recently scored a bushel of apples at the farmer’s market. They are last year’s apples, stored in a climate controlled environment. My fave farmer told me that apples will be few and far between this year, because we had an early spring, then a late frost once the apple trees had already blossomed. So apples will be a luxury item this fall and the price will reflect it, at least in my little corner of the world. I made a pre-emptive strike against pricy apples by grabbing a second bushel after the first successful applesauce project.
This recipe is perfect for baby food because it has only 2 ingredients. Apples and water. None of that nasty high-fructose-corn-syrup slop in THIS applesauce!
Step one is removing the abundant amount of pesticides that are on most apples in North America. You can find directions for removing pesticide right HERE. Once they are clean and chemical free, you’re ready to go!
