All that squash and yams yielded over 180 ounces of baby food!! That’s equivalent to more than 51 Gerber baby food containers! (You can click here for more detailed directions on how I make everything. I love making our own baby food!)
Then, another day yielded a mass of apple sauce! Just over 10 pounds of apples (for just under $5) turned into over 100 ounces of delicious homemade applesauce!
If you’ve never made homemade applesauce before, you really should give it a try–especially this time of year when you can find such a great price on apples! The hardest part is just the peeling/cutting. Seriously, all you do is peel, core, and cut the apples (and I highly recommend getting one of these if you don’t have one already!! I didn’t have one for these 10 pounds, but now I do! 🙂 )
I love love love this oven photo!!! (I popped over to look at your pumpkin post *adorable daughter* with the pumpkin on her head! and clicked LinkWithin to get here…)
when i have frozen applesauce in the past it come out really runny when i defrost it. have you had this happen? how do you avoid this?
I’m not sure how to avoid that, but I have found that it’s a little runnier than usual. Sometimes I drain a little water off. But, usually if I stir it up well, it’s fine!
