One of my favorite winter activities is making applesauce and canning it for later months. It's been nearly four years since I started this tradition with Matthew and his mother. With over 75 pounds of apples, we peel, core, and slice every last one. After the initial cutting, a mixture of sugar, lemon juice, and cinnamon are some of the special ingredients for its syrup, all of which are canned in an airtight mason jar. Pictured above are some of our finished products, all made with love! We canned over 70 jars this year, many of which will be handed out to friends and family during the holiday season.
