Of course we taste tested all the varieties to find our favorites…Jonagold, Snow, Honeycrisp, Lustre Elstar, and Mutsu were definite winners in our book, so we picked and picked and picked some more. And then, as we carried our bushel of apples back to the barn we stopped by the big wagon of windfall apples. They were calling to me, really.
I feel like I have been making a crockpot full of applesauce everyday this week. Our house smells so good! And if you have ever had homemade applesauce you know it is one of the best things in the world to eat. I thought it might be nice to package up some of that apple-y goodness and share it with others. Why not share the love, right?
Then I grabbed some felt and cut out little apples by hand and glued them on the center of the label with a regular Elmer’s glue stick. I hand-stamped “Applesauce” underneath.
