We were very fortunate to have been given two grocery bags full of marvelous apples. When someone gives you apples, you make applesauce!

Dancer cutting up the apples.

Just starting to cook. It took an hour for this pot to cook.
They are all cooked down and soft. Mmmmm - can you smell them? It made our house seem cozy inside when outside the wind was blowing snow and it was in the low 30's.

Putting the cooked apples through the food mill. Both the kids always want to do this part.
It's warm and yummy.

Final step is to give the scraps to the chickens. We don't have any compost because between the goats, rabbits, chickens, and ducks we don't have anything left. And what they don't eat, i.e. table scraps, the cats or the dog are more than happy to eat.

I just made pear butter, I will have to include the children in the preparation of the butter/sauce. Sadly, we just went out and found out that the apple tree we planted last year is dead! We'll get another one but looking at your pictures I can already taste those yummy apples and all of their by products!
