I'm not getting much from my garden right now to store away, but I have been able to take advantage of great deals from the produce market to put fresh items away for winter. Yesterday was applesauce day in my kitchen. I can get a half bushel bag of "seconds" apples from my local produce stand for $5. Add about an hour of work and I have 12 pints of fresh made, no sugar added, super yummy apple sauce.
Mostly because I have a cool attachment for my MamaMixer that separates the apple from the peel and core. I chop the apples, boil them for about 7 minutes and send them through. Out one side comes the apple debris and out the bottom comes the apple sauce! It's a fabulous invention that does all the work for me!
