Well, i peeled and quartered and boiled and stirred apples today and ended up with 12 pints of applesauce. It doesn't seem like a lot.
Just for the record, the apples left in the carrying basket were originally from the bushel basket - i grabbed a few to finish up the last batch but didn't need them all. Regardless, it's still a bushel of apples left! oy! what to do? what to do? Maybe I should take them down to the neighbor with horses!
