Apples, Apples, Apples

I love fall when the farmer's markets start to fill with apples.

I got a big bag of them on Friday and today we are making applesauce.

I haven't ever made applesauce before, but the recipe seems pretty easy.
Apples, water, cinnamon.

I discovered something fun while I was peeling the apples.

If you spin the apple a second time, you get apple spaghetti.

The Younger Hug-a-Bug was perfectly entertained eating his apple spaghetti, and I could focus on cutting up the apples.

My beloved peeler/corer/slicer needed adjusting, and I was too impatient to fix it, though I think that I did about 10 minutes more work by slicing the apples by hand.

It's really the peeling that I dislike, so that worked out ok.

The aroma in my house right now is heavenly.

We're in for a lunchtime treat that can't be beat!



  1. Yum - hope mr. jess is feeling better.

  2. That sounds like something fun I could do with my little ones. But where do I find one of those apple peeler/corer things...?
    Hope your hubby's feeling better soon, too!
