We got our hands on about 50 pounds of free apples from a friend of a friend's apple tree.
We ordered a food strainer and went to town making applesauce. My friend, Anna, and her babe came over to help and after 6 hours we canned about 16 quarts of applesauce.
We literally could not have done it without Bug's help. That thing was HARD to crank. He did almost ALL of the manual cranking labor. He went from one outfit, to shirtless, to another outfit because he was getting so juicy and sweaty.
A few weeks later we tried tomato sauce which was wayyy easier. These boys are good workers. Can't wait to get them on a farm.
