Today I canned applesauce. After my failure last year (it all got moldy even though the jars were sealed), I was a bit reluctant to try again. But I mustered up the courage, fired up the crock pot, drug out the food mill and got to work…
When the crock is full, I drain off the lemon water, put it in the warmer and turn it to high.
Cook until apples are fork tender.
Put some into the food mill and turn the handle until nothing is left but the peels.
Keep adding apples until they have all gone through the food mill. Empty out the mill.
Now you have a big bowl of applesauce.
