When I was a little kid my mom would can applesauce every fall. It was exhausting. As one of the children I was expected to help with chopping, peeling, and mashing. Every year I vow after hours of making applesauce that I will not do it next year! Of course the next year rolls around, and one of my friends makes the announcement that she has apples for anyone that wants to come pick them, and I go. We probably picked around 7 paper bags full of apples. We ended up with 67 pints of applesauce, and it was worth it!

Our secret to making applesauce as quick and hassle free as possible it this fun attachment…https://www.kitchenaid.com/countertop-appliances/stand-mixers/attachments/p.fruit-vegetable-strainer-set.fvsfga.html . I’m not making any money off this, I just wanted to share this product that we love.

We simply:

  • Wash the apples

  • Cut apples in half or quarters. Alaska apples are small, so we can get away with half.

  • Put them in some water on the stove, cook them until they are soft

  • Throw them in the Kitchen-aid fruit and vegetable strainer…it poops out all of the skin, seeds, and crap. This is the kids favorite part, and be prepared for lots of poop jokes to come from the kids!

  • and you have applesauce.
