    Make pie!

    This is how I make applesauce, too! I picked up an inexpensive food mill and I run it through that after it has cooled down. Yum! So good.

    Are your apples ready already? Ours have a way to go yet. This is how I make it too, just chop them up and run it through my mother-in-law’s ancient food mill afterwards to get out the seeds and stems. Sometimes I throw in some blackberries or raspberries too, if I have some around. I makes great sauce for freezing and using in muffins, etc. later on in the winter.

    I love the idea of not peeling. I need to try this someday and yes, that is a big pot!!

    We love homemade applesauce. I’ve never made it on the stove though – only the crockpot and that’s worked great for us!

    Looks delicious! I made homemade apple sauce about 10 years ago when before I had my tonsils taken out. I borrowed a co-worker’s cone sieve with pestle and that was a lot of work. :) Too bad I didn’t feel like eating at all while I was recovering. The applesauce kept though, it would probably be my favorite thing to make with a lot of apples. Good job you guys! and good job making others taste test :)

    Thanks for this, Sara! Apple season is almost here, so I may give this a shot. Looks good! Question: how fresh do the apples have to be? I often find myself with apples that the kids say are too mushy to eat and I wonder if I could use them for applesauce. Will the be a difference in the taste?

    Great illustrations! Really understand the process! Thx! Also — had to laugh at the note about your daughter. Our kids still run from the room when the camera comes out. Have to be really sneaky to get a good photo of grown kids!
