Sickness had prevented us from heading up to North Georgia for a weekend visit. I had hoped to get some apples from the orchards while they were in season. Amazingly, our Wal-Mart had the exact variety of apples that I would have purchased in N. GA! So I bought several bags.

Here are the sliced apples already canned up.


Here are the rest of the apples cooking away for applesauce.

Applesauce is one of those "easy to can" items. It is oh, so good and fresh when it is homemade.

If you have never tried canning, apples and applesauce are a good place to start. They are water bath canned and it is pretty easy.

Happy Fall,

Ooooh homemade apple sauce definitely is the best! I grew up on it till my dear mother stopped canning- I made my first batch this year! Your apple look wonderful in their jars! I didn't think of canning them like that, but I did can apple pie filling. :D Congrats on getting all that done! I'm sure your family will enjoy it :D

Okay, please help this city girl! I would love to can but I don't have any supplies like a pressure cooker, etc. Can you tell me how to do the apples?

Love you!

Thanks for the nice comments! I guess I'll do a post on how to can or at least add some links for some good tutorials.
