I've been making applesauce pretty much every weekend for a month. It's been slow going with just 4 or 5 pints per session since the first weekend.
So my Momma came over last weekend to help me make a dent on our apples.
Over 2 days we think we peeled more than 30 pounds of apples. We aren't exactly sure since we only did the weighing after the peeling and trimming had been completed.
We made 4 batches of applesauce, 1 batch of apple butter and 1 batch of apple jelly that over-jelled and became apple candy instead.

I had a good time spending most of the weekend with my Momma.
