11.05.16 Saturday Applesauce Day

Well it was round 2 of applesauce at the McDermitt household!  I had bought 1/2 bushel of Ida Red Apples when I was in NJ last week.  Today was the day they became applesauce.  I make unsweentened applesauce.  I leave the skins on when I cook them and they turn out a lovely pinkish color.  Jenny, my daughter has chickens and I know her girls will love the apple cores, skins, etc. that I'm going to take to them tomorrow!

First I cooked the apples until they became soft.

I then proceeded to put the cooked apples in a food mill and presto applesauce!!

2 of the 6 quart jars of applesauce I made today :)!

6 in all today!  I love homemade things and applesauce is one of them!!

Will we have a little of the new applesauce tonight with dinner!  I have a stuffed flank steak in the oven.  Oh the timer just went off-gotta run!!

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.

Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
