I like tart, crisp apples like Stayman Winesap or Honeycrisp, and I like them cold, out of the refrigerator drawer. Ross will only eat Fuji apples -- and he insists they stay at room temperature -- his apples NEVER go into the frig.
John almost never eats an apple, but he is the best grocery shopper in the world, so his big job is keeping both me and Ross well supplied...
The other day, I realized John's shopping had gotten way ahead of our apple-eating. Suddenly, we had a dozen apples that were past their eating prime...
And I remembered how easy it was to make applesauce with my Foley Food Mill....I wondered if I could find the darn thing...??
|Stuck in the back of a high cupboard -- there it was!! I took it apart, scrubbed it up,|
|I washed the apples, and cut them into quarters....I put them in the pot, seeds and peels and all...added 1/4 cup of water, and covered the pot.|
|I stirred them often to prevent sticking. The apples quickly cooked down.|
|Then, into the top of the Foley Food Mill....turn the handle....|
|APPLESAUCE! Just as easy as I remembered it!!|
|As you turn the handle, the applesauce goes down through the sieve...leaving only the peel and seeds.|
|MAGIC!! What a great invention. Thank you, Mr. Foley....|
