Making Apple Sauce

applesauce1I'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!

  1. I love mine to, this weekend is going to be mega applesauce day here.

  2. Oooh I have to get one of those attachments for what is our "daddy mixer"! My DH has done 99% of the cooking for over 30 years (today is our 32nd wedding anniversary). I am recently "retired", so I guess I should name it the "grandma mixer" now?

  3. What a great idea- I didn't know that KA made an attachment like that. Thanks for sharing at the TGP!
