We're on the sauce
Went to a friend's house over the weekend to help her can homemade applesauce. Since I'm a very novice canner, this was a good chance to learn some things.
We also did a bit of research to figure out just why my attempt at jelly making fell flat ( I got a lovely sauce, but I wanted jelly!)
In terms of frugal .. I don't know if buying produce to can, freeze, etc, is that big a cost savings (unless you get a good deal). On the other hand, we know what's in this sauce: and it does taste different than commercially made applesauce.
And hey, I got a chance to catch up with a good friend I don't get to see too often. So it was well worth it.
