DIY Apple Sauce Tutorial

DIY Apple Sauce Tutorial

Ever wondered how to make your own apple sauce??

When I was little we had an apple tree on our property. One time my aunt Janice came to visit from the United States and while at our house, she suggested we make apple sauce. I can still remember how good it tasted! So, when Ken suggested we buy a bunch of apples because they were way on sale this fall, I went with it!

You guys- it is EASY!

Step 1: Boil
Put clean, whole apples in a pot of water & boil like crazy until they start coming apart & stuff.

Step 2: Mush
We used a hand cranked mill to squish the apples (I hear you can mush or mash or squish them in several other creative ways, but my mother in law had a hand mill, so we lucked out ;)

Step 3: Flavour
All we added to ours was some cinnamon (which I love!), but if you wanted, you could sweeten with sugar or whatever other spice you like.

We canned ours, with my mother in law's instructions. I didn't take pictures of that process though, because I was too busy with other things!

So yummy & the apple sauce totally brought back memories!

Now, what are you waiting for? Go, get yourself some apples, call your kids in to learn about the process, have some fun, make some mess, then have a treat! :)

    I had no idea that you put the whole apple in, I thought you would at least core it. Wow who knew, not me!
