Home Canned Applesauce

Every Fall my husband goes out and buys a bushel or two of Golden Delicious apples. Then the 2 of us make applesauce. This year we canned 96 pints.

I am not an applesauce lover, but my husband is. His family eat applesauce with most big meals. So 96 pints should do him for awhile.

Store bought applesauce just is not the same. So my shelves in the basement are filled!
