All The Apples

Our apple tree is giving us a bountiful harvest this year! I have a daily ritual of picking the ripe apples every evening (and raking/scooping the fallen ones into the trash). I finally had a refrigerator bin full so the kiddos and I made jelly!

After A TON of cutting and de-bugging I ended up with two instant pots full of beautiful red apples. The tree was here when we moved in so we have no clue what kind they are. We just call them red apples, lol.

We painstakingly drained and filtered the apples for most of the morning. That left us with enough juice for three full batches of jelly.

And the apply flesh/pulp the kids and I ran through the food mill to make apple sauce. I’m not a fan of applesauce but PB and Jellybean gobbled it up!

Safe to say our winter stores are good to go for jelly. No doubt some of this will end up in Christmas gifts!

Happy Canning!!
