One of the benefits of living in New England is being able to pick apples in autumn. We have an apple orchard right in town and they grow such beautiful apples!
I ended up purchasing two bushels over two weekends. My kids were elated since I refuse to buy commercial apples, and the organic apples I could buy are usually wrinkled as well as pricey.
Apart from enjoying apples raw, I froze some slices for apple pie next month, and I dehydrated many into apple chips (I’ll share that recipe/method soon!).
I used this apple peeler with suction base for the first time and was so happy with it! It saved me sooooo much time. I peeled half a bushel in 5 minutes flat.
I don’t can my applesauce or heat it in any way. I keep it very simple.
Because I am always looking for creative ways to sneak probiotics into our meals (and snacks), I decided to add 1/4 cup water kefir to the apples as they were churning in my food processor.
I filled mason jars to the 3-cup mark and froze until I’m ready to enjoy the applesauce.
Doesn’t it look delicious???
