Another wonderful fall item (of course you can get them any time from the supermarket). We get ours from Wm Schrober, who comes to our farmer's market and has a ton of fields not too far away. Most years we pick our own at another local farm, but we just didn't have enough time for a variety of reasons. So we got two peck of apples, cortland and golden delicious, and made a bunch of applesauce. I love apple sauce, prefer it over apple pie. And, with a toddler in the house, its a great snack, especially when we know the source and what was added, which was just filtered water, allspice, and of course, cinnamon... 12 quarts of peeled apples cook down to a bit more than four quarts of apple sauce. I absolutely love eating apples, especially golden delicious with some good horseradish cheese. But this applesauce is good any time too.
