Applesauce Day

Applesauce Day is an annual holiday around here which occurs every October. Yesterday, along with my sister-in-law and two of her children, we celebrated the holiday by canning 60+ quarts of applesauce. We used 6 bushels of a variety of apples - Golden Delicious, Honey Crisp, Stayman, Rome and Winesap. The kids ate scads of the hot sauce - ladeling it into bowls out of the big bucket that we cranked it into before jarring it. Applesauce-making keeps the house hot but our tummies (and hearts) warm with the taste and memories we create.

I always love the way the house smells for a few days after "applesauce day". I even get my boys to help turn the foodmill!
