Yesterday, we had to make a trip into Redmond to pick up some ingredients to make applesauce and a cute little project that we are going to make on Friday.
Today, we are making applesauce from the 80# of apples we got on Friday. We had two big 40# boxes....one Gala and one Jazz. There was just no way we were going to get them all ate before they spoiled and I really don't want tons of baked goodies tempting me!!!
So, I decided to make applesauce and apple butter/ Here we are washing the apples. There are more to the left of the sinks.....
And, of course, I will make good use of the apples that are left in each of the boxes.
We'll be eating most of them, but I am sure one pie or some sort of dessert will appear from the rest of them in the box.
You ask how I came to have 80# of apples? It's not even apple season. Well, sadly a semi truck over turned on a highway up on a pass where a local tow truck was called to tow the truck. They also get the produce as part of that bargain, I guess. Not sure how that works out.....but anyway, then the tow truck company makes them available to the people in town. Word gets around....and then WHAM, the apples are ALL GONE ;-)
Now, at $20 a box...that comes to about .25cents a pound. That's pretty cheap!!!
Hope you have a great day!!!
