Sauce, Sauce, Applesauce!




You may or may not remember that last year we (and many surrounding us) had NO fruit from our trees because of a spring freeze. But this year is different! So far I've frozen applesauce, apple pie filling, and diced apples. I've also dried many, many apple slices. Next I plan to try to make some apple leather. We'll see how that turns out!
What other ways do YOU preserve apples?
