The girls and I made applesauce yesterday. 

I had about 12 pounds of organic golden delicious, 25-30 pounds of store bought clearance apples, and a grocery bag full of Gravensteins my friend gave me.  Usually a brown paper bag is 20+ pounds so I figure it was about 60 pounds of apples altogether. 

Here's our starting apples:

We only had one mishap with a jar breaking as soon as it settled into the hot water.  I took the jar out after the batch was done and fished the disc out of the water.

Altogether 34 quarts.  Yay!
