Applesauce is surprisingly easy but it took me all day. The day before, Marston and I went up to Apple Hill to an orchard to get our apples. I bought 2 bushels (80 lbs) of golden delicious seconds. Because they were seconds I got them all for $24.
I really do like the idea of knowing exactly where the food my family eats comes from. I think that's the main reason I do it. It also saves a lot of money in the long run.
