homemade applesauce

Still trying to catch up on the last few weeks! We’ve been taking things pretty slowly, while I’ve been sick and we’ve been working on the house.

A few weeks ago, during our apple week, Christopher and I made homemade applesauce. I peeled, sliced, and core the apples, and Christopher helped me break them up into smaller chunks.

He also had fun learning to use a table knife, under careful supervision!

He helped me add some spices, too.

Then it cooked in the slow cooker for several hours until done. It was very good, but I added too much spice. I don’t think Christopher liked the cloves in it. We’ll have to try again without the cloves and see what he thinks! Store bought applesauce isn’t even on the same level as the homemade kind, though we certainly go through plenty of jars of Tree Top applesauce!
