Applesauce and Resourcefulness

This week’s farm pick-up landed me a small cache of less-than-gorgeous apples: an invitation to make applesauce!

Call me lazy. Call me a minimalist, but I just cut them and plopped them in the slow cooker. Nothing else really seemed necessary: no real need to add sugar.


Since I hadn’t yet unpacked – or even located – my food mill, it took me a while to come up with how I would smash them and filter out the seeds, skins, etc.

Then I saw it: my potato ricerimageimage

It was definitely more splattery – so I was glad I’d already chosen a higher-sided bowl!

Otherwise, it worked great! It didn’t handle as many apples as the food mill would have before needing to be cleared out and reloaded, but I would totally do this again!
