Shh… don't tell anyone I'm poor. They all think I'm living frugal and green just like everyone these days. This is a blog about a senior citizen living a frugal life, on a fixed income, in a low income food desert, and passing along knowledge from lessons learned. Some she learned from her Grandma Mama many years ago and some learned only a few days ago.
This week I found apples on the discount table at the grocery.
Apples were also on sale ten bags for ten dollars so I bought three more bags. One had been emptied before I realized I hadn’t taken a picture for this post.
Then on food bank day I got more apples. I was the last person in line and said I would be canning the apples so they gave me extra. I also got 5 onions and four little cuties.
So I got started canning applesauce. I really had thought about making dehydrated apples or apple butter or canning apple pie filling but applesauce was quickest.
I ended up with 13 pints of applesauce.
Apples cook down alot in the process. I use applesauce in place of oil in baking sometimes which is why I make it more often. Ok, I like it as a healthy snack too. 🙂
