Apple Sauce & Review

To kick off fall and to get motivated for all the fall baking and activities our family, along with Michelle and Jimmy spent a day at The Pumpkin Patch on Sauvie Island! It was a great way to spend the day and they had lots of activites including a corn maze, kids barn, hayride and hay bales for the kids to play on. Of course, Michelle and I were all excited about the fresh fruit and veggies at the Pumpkin Patch Market!! We were on the hunt for some delicious apples so we could tryout our new applesauce maker from CSN!

We got two different kinds- Jonagold and another kind that we can not remember at all!

Our new "toy" made making applesauce so easy!! It is very easy to put together and use. It also suction's to the counter and doesn't move at all!

Start by washing your apples and putting them in a big kettle with just a little bit of water. Cover and cook until apples are soft and starting to crack and peal. Dump the apples into the top of the applesauce maker. If the apples are bigger, you may need to cut them in half before putting into the apple funnel.

Ready to go!

Push the apples thru and crank the handle..... the "good" part will come out the front and all the "bad" stuff will come out of the shoot on the end!

Hmmmm.... looks nummy and flavorful!

Add as much sugar and cinnamon as you desire!

Whip it good! :)

Spoon your applesauce into your prepared jars. Boil the jars in a hot water bath for 20 minutes.

Let your jars sit for 24 hours!

Ready to enjoy!!! We mixed both the kinds of apples and it turned out great!
