Canning Applesauce

Making applesauce with a Victorio Multi-strainer
Yesterday my kitchen was a sticky mess making applesauce. Normally I make applesauce with apples from our very own trees but this year between the coyotes and the porcupines we didn't get very many apples:( The coyotes ate the apples (plums, pears and grapes, too) and the porcupines ate all the rest! So my super shopper hubby went to Andy's Market in College Place, WA where they sell the best tasting apples for the best prices and purchased a bunch of apples--Fuji, Jonagold and Cameo. 

14 of the 21 quarts I canned
I decided to mix the Fuji and Jonagold first so made 21 quarts with this combo. Oh, my! It is delicious! I can't even take the credit for the flavor because it is just the apples--no sugar or sweetener of any kind; just plain apples! Next week I want to try mixing Fuji and Cameo.

I want to share with you one of our very favorite breakfast dishes...

Applesauce Toast

Whole Wheat Toast
Peanut butter or almond butter (sunflower seed butter is good too)
Applesauce (home-canned is best)

Put nut butter on toast then ladle warm applesauce on top. Enjoy! Yummylicious!!! Great for when you're feeding a crowd. Add some fresh fruit and you have a meal fit for a king (or queen)!

Have a great day and a super weekend. Kat
