some of you have heard the saga
of the apples already.
in september, my father-in-law generously
allowed me to pick about a million apples
and other various fruits from his yard.
they were lovely apples
and i had every intention of
turning them into applesauce and
canning them right away.
then life happened.
fast forward to november 1st.
i had managed to peel, core, and cut the apples,
but ended up sticking the lot in my freezer
due to lack of time and
a large enough pot to can them in.
then, much to my surprise and delight,
my father-in-law came to the rescue in that respect too!
a lovely pressure cooker/canner arrived in the mail.
and i FINALLY managed to turn all those beautiful apples
into jars of canned applesauce.
ready for sharing and
