Delicious looking!

Kylee said...

Yummy! Is this the natural color or have you added some cinnamon? I love cinnamon applesauce!

Frances said...

Hi Shady, good job on making all of us hungry!

Mmmm, Mmmmm, good!!

Shady Gardener said...

Thank you, thank you...

Ottawa gardener, Thanks for stopping by. Too bad you couldn't sample! ;-)

Hi Gail, It's delicious and I've made many, many gallons lately! The apples were free and that's even nicer!

Kylee, I did add a little cinnamon, but not enough to color the sauce. These apples were allowed to grow "gracefully and naturally" ;-) (as in most backyards), so all it takes is a little washing, quartering, coring and cooking. 24 apples plus 1/2 cup sugar and a little cinnamon (when I remember!) makes about 3 quarts of applesauce. My food mill makes it so I don't have to peel! (That's what makes the color).

Frances, This has been a super blessing! I've frozen a LOT of sauce, given away a LOT of sauce and have been baking as well!

flydragon, :-) It'll taste even better this Winter!

Patsi said...

And you cook too !!
Sure would like to try some.

Shady Gardener said...

Patsi, :-) This is easy. I'll post the recipe sometime later.

Mmmmmmmm! I'll be right over! Oh, wait - it's Thursday - is there any left? This was such a neat post!/Deb

MMMM good. That's what fresh applesauce is. MMMMM good.

Shady Gardener said...

Hi Deb! Yes, there's some left over... but not much. You'd better hurry! :-)

troutbirder - I agree! However, I have an apple cake recipe that you'd flip over! I'll be posting... :-)

Kylee said...

I've requested the recipe for apple cake I had at the Master Gardeners' meeting. I'll be posting that when I get it. Wonder if it's the same?!

Shady Gardener said...

Kylee, I'm baking two cakes right now... and I'll take a photo and post the recipe soon. Let's compare! (I also make my own adjustments that, I believe, work out even better!) :-)

Have you completed the Master Gardening class? I was very tempted to participate last Winter... Would you recommend it??

My mom is a Master Gardener, but I am not. I want to take the classes if they offer them here this year.
