Making Applesauce

We decided to pick up some of the dropped apples at my folks house to make homemade applesauce for the winter. We put all of the kids to work and in no time had 7, 5 gallon buckets. We set up shop in the garage- Addie and Tom peeled, I cooked, and all the other kids ran the peels up to the goats and pig. Took us 2 days, but to show for our work we were able to put up about 45 quarts. Plus we picked up 7 more buckets to store for later in the winter when we can feed them to the animals or make more applesauce if there are any leftovers. We have already enjoyed eating our applesauce. We ate a batch right out of the cooker, warm with whipped cream. Yum!!!
