This has been a great year for apples at our house.
We have 3 big apple trees. I can’t even remember what type they are- it’s been so many years since we planted them! But they are bit on the tart side, making them delicious for eating and making applesauce!

Last week, I canned 24 pints of applesauce!
Today we’re having pork barbecue for supper, so I made up a fresh batch for supper to go along with it. It’s cooking in the crock pot now.
