Fresh Picked Applesauce

7 years ago

My first post here is going to be about apples! 

We picked 2 bushels of apples last weekend and we are making pies, applesauce and applebutter.  I am allergic to apples but that doesn't keep me from making all of this yummy stuff since once the apple is cooked I can eat it!

I purchased a nifty little apple peeler, slicer, corer gadget today and with great excitement my husband and I along wth our daughter put it together and began peeling, slicing and coreing our fresh picked apples!  (I have a son too but it was late and he was asleep!).

I am also gluten-free so I had to go get some gluten-free pie crust mix but ended up with frozen, gluten-free pie crusts from our local Earthfare. The thing with the gluten-free pie crusts is that they are teeny tiny and it only took 2 apples to fill it up!  FWIW, the apples were pretty huge though.  I am using Granny Smith and Arkansas Black apples.  I had never heard of Arkansas Black until this past week when I went to NC to pick them!

I will post pictures and recipes tomorrow.  Right now it's time for bed!
