Can it really be labeled Child Labor if it is loads of fun, quality time with Mom and Dad, and you can eat the fresh hot applesauce out of the bowl? Nah...I didn't think so either. It sure is fun though.
Ok, this is hard, really hard. Are you ready?
Apples (LOTS OF THEM)
Wash apples and cut into quarters. Steam apples until they are very soft. Put into your great strainer and put your kids to work. Or do it yourself, whatever.
When your bowl is good and full, transfer it to a stock pot, add cinnamon to taste and ENJOY!
This is the only applesauce we eat. We canned 44 quarts this year and hopefully (fingers crossed) they will last until next October.
Yum yum yum.
