I have been on blogging hiatus but still busy like always. I decided that I was going to run low on applesauce so I contacted a local orchard and they still had lots of apples. Silly me.
I bought 5 boxes of apples and proceeded to make 98 more jars of sauce. At least now I have something else to add to my homemade Xmas gifts besided just jelly.
They were nice apples and I really like that they were grown semi-locally, about an hour away. I used Red Delicious, Golden Delicious and Granny Smith. Only one Granny Smith to four of the others. I think it turned out well enough.
The staging area for cooling jars was my mudroom. It was hard to not share some every time someone came by. I suppose that is what I made it for.
And finally the funny shot of the day, my Cat in a Hat! Seems old Rusty liked napping in my birthday sombrero. Go figure.
