For years, my mom has been canning her fabulous homemade applesauce and giving it to all of us to devour.
But she's out of the country serving a mission this year. Our applesauce stores were running low! We tried storebought applesauce. Gross. How do they even make it so tasteless and watery?
So I acquired two boxes of apples (and one of peaches for good measure). I saw them sitting on the counter the first day and thought, "That's not much. Probably not enough. I can go get more after I can these."
Ha ha. Three days latter, I am done. I will not be acquiring any more fruit. (Although the garden will probably give us more tomatoes.)
- 33 quarts applesauce
- 7 quarts peaches
- 6 quarts tomato purée
- 6 half-pints peach jelly
- 7 pints and 4 quarter-pints peach jam
