TIME TO MAKE APPLESAUCE!

Every Fall we set a day aside to make homemade applesauce. It is a family affair! We  begin first by going to a local farm and either picking our own apples or purchasing pre-picked ones.  We also have two apple trees in our yard and depending on our harvest, we will often use a combination of our own apples and apples from the local farm.12246882_892140577489199_5455948460509576147_n12249790_892140657489191_5695898443290710837_nWe wash the apples and then peel them.
