Food: Canning Apples

The apples are ready!

If I don't get busy, I think my tree will break.

I peeled and sliced about 16 pounds of apples before I had to stop and rest my peeling hand.

7 pints of sauce and 10 1/2 pints of butter.  It sure does seem like there should be more for all of that effort.  Of course the tree is still hanging very low.  I think I can be busy with apples until the first freeze that's coming in about 2 months.  ;-)
