This is what my kitchen looked like all weekend. Apples everywhere. Sticky apple residue on everything. Dirty dishes filling the dishwasher. And more apples. Yes, apples. My family was here visiting and my dad, husband, and I were carrying out an annual tradition of applesauce-making. Some friends joined us again this year and we also made a few pints of apple butter. Our dining room table is full of several dozen quarts of sauce, and I am so happy, because homemade applesauce is incomparable to store-bought. If you've never had homemade applesauce, you are truly missing out.
