To start, we needed some apples from the tree behind the house. In fact, these apples are just a part of what we used.
Next, the apples needed some preparation such as peeling/coring/slicing and removing the stink bug damage. From there, everything is possible with the apple slices.
Et voilà !! Just 9 hours later we have 13 quarts of sauce and 7 quarts of slices. The Grimes Golden apple on the right is a nice 12 ounce specimen for 3.5 inches in diameter; supposedly a normal size for this apple.
Next week-end, it will be time for a more serious business : pie making.
