We went apple picking a few weekends ago, and got busy that night with the Squeezo, making sauce to can the next morning.  Since then the last bushel of apples has been taking up most of the floor space in our pantry waiting the next free afternoon with a chill in the air.  I'm sure it won't be long--maybe even today.

Sauce with the Squeezo is super easy, and way fun (except for cleaning the screen afterward).
Here's how we do it:

      * Wash, then chop apples in half

     * Boil/steam apples in a large pot until soft enough to poke with a fork

* Dump them into the Squeezo funnel, and crank away! (watch out for the splatters)

Kale may be the only child I've ever met who doesn't like applesauce.  I'm hoping to win him over with this next batch with a bit of cinnamon and other spices.  If not, then more for the rest of us.


  1. You don't have to remove the stems and seeds? That is great! I love how serious they all seem to be taking their jobs in these pictures, such cute kiddos.

  2. That is a fantastic applesauce maker. Has kale ever tried pear sauce? My third child doesn't like applesauce much, either, but he loves pear sauce. Grainier and butterier at the same time...

    1. Thanks, we'll have to try it. We've got two pear trees in the yard, neither of which has ever made fruit, but we're hopeful that some year they will!


I love hearing from you!
