I Think There is Apple Sauce in My Future

I have an Anna Apple tree growing espalier style against my west fence in my herb garden. My boys and I harvested several bags of apples from this little tree this week.

Even though it is grown flat against the fence, I get tons of apples from this tree each year. That is the beauty of espalier.

After making an apple pie or two,I am going to make homemade applesauce!

How do you make applesauce you ask????

Well, I peel, core and slice the apples and place them in a crock pot with a little cinnamon and allspice. Then I let them cook for about 6 hours. These Anna apples are very sweet, so no sugar is needed!

Easy Peasy! YUM!
