Making & Canning Applesauce w/o all the Fancy Equipment
I don’t have all the fancy stuff most people have to make and can applesauce so I found instructions on The Whole Life Nutrition Kitchen on how to make and can applesauce with what you have in your kitchen and it worked like a charm.
You will need apples, lots and lots of apples, cause a lot of apples don’t go very far. My friend has a few apple trees and she was kind enough to let me come and pick some… I think she had more than enough, so I may need to get more and make some more applesauce.

The instructions were super easy to follow. The most time consuming thing was peeling and coring the apples. I do not have a apple slicer, peeler, corer. I added sugar and cinnamon to my apples because they were a bit tart. Let your taste buds be the guide, you can add some at the beginning and after an hour or so taste them and see if you need more. I also left the chunks in the apples, whatever didn’t turn to mush I just left as it was.
