It was a beautiful day, and when I looked out in the backyard I saw all the apples that had fallen from the eye doctor's tree that overhangs our yard, I couldn't let them go to waste. Many of them had been nibbled by bunnies and squirrels but more of them had not.
I went out in my sweats and bedhead, picked up the non-nibbled ones on the ground and picked the few I could reach that were still on the tree.
I washed them, quartered them, simmered them, and made them into six quarts and one pint of applesauce.
I used Splenda to sweeten it this time. We'll see how that holds up as a sweetener. It took a lot more time than I thought it would to make that little bit of applesauce. It is yummy though.
