Making Applesauce

Remember when I bought a bunch of clearance apples about a month ago?  They were $.50/lb and have been sitting in my fridge taking up space until about a week ago when the little ladies and I made applesauce.   It only took about 45 minutes and my own part was only about 10 minutes!

Apples that have been in the fridge.  Qty. 15

Half the apples cut up by Mom and cooking on the stove.
The Kitchenaid grinds and strains the first batch of softened apples as the girls dump them in.

The girls also did the second pot of apples.  You can see the bowl of skins, seeds, and stems the mixer spits out.

The well-used strainer after taking the trough off.

I put nearly a gallon of applesauce in these Tupperware containers.  It was gone in 5 days!
I'd better keep my eyes peeled for more cheap apples.  Let me know if you see any good deals!



  1. Well done! I love all the gadgets your KitchenAid has! And more that you put them to good use.

  2. Thanks Denise! I picked up a set of 3 attachments (grinder, strainer, slicer) at a yard sale for $25!


So, what do you think?
