Other apple posts this season: My First Tarte Tatin, Homemade Apple Butter.

Okay, this is the last thing I did with the bag of apples we picked this year. We had 16 pounds of apples, I used almost half on tarte tatin and apple butter. I used the rest for this unbelievably simple applesauce recipe from Food in Jars. You don’t even need to peel the apples, the skins just fall right off. I actually made a second batch to use up the remaining apples because it was so fast and easy. I might never buy applesauce again, and it didn’t even need sugar.
