This weekend was the first weekend of pick-your-own apples at a local orchard. After an awesome lunch at Hot Dog Johnny's, we headed over to the orchards to take Sydney and Violet on their very first apple picking excursion.
We picked about 10 pounds of beautiful Gala apples. The girls couldn't wait to get into them and ate two on the car ride home. Once home, I was left with the predicament of finding something to do with all those apples. I decided to make one of the girls' favorite things - applesauce.
After peeling and slicing the ten pounds of apples, I threw them in a pot with a little water and a few pieces of lemon peel and brought the mixture to a boil.
