The art of the apple

Freshly made applesauce
created today

The good thing about living with, and loving a driven human
being when it comes to making food, is that you reach the 
freezing cold of February (we're getting a hint of that today)
with canned peaches that taste like they were fresh picked. 
And today the artistic focus is on applesauce, which is quite the

There's the cleaning, the chopping, boiling the apples,
and heating of the jars, then putting all of the mixture through
a Foley Food Mill -- hand pressing the applesauce through by 
turning the blade. OMG!

The result is delicious -- no sugar -- so if you get a gift of a jar, and
like yours sweet, you'll have to add it.  And there it will be for
Thanksgiving dinner, and all of the upcoming (masked, or rapid
tested) celebrations.

Have an enjoying the art of the day, day.
