I decided last night that today was to be The Great Applesauce Making Day . . . finally.
'Twas just me and my audio book and we gave it a good shot.
Amazing that after spending the whole day, there are only eleven quarts of canned applesauce lined up on the counter.
Know what that means? It means I'm gonna have to spend two more full days at this little task in order to have enough quarts put by for this year.
I'm not complaining. Today was a dismal, damp, gray day not conducive to outside chores, I had a small cozy fire crackling in the wood stove and the cooking apple aroma in the house was heavenly. I could think of a lot (A LOT!) worse ways to spend the next couple of days. So bring on those apples, I'll be ready for another go-round tomorrow!
