Homemade Applesauce

Mom and Dad brought a large bag full of apples from their yard to North Carolina. Saturday, we made applesauce.





Two of our three backyard apple trees are heavy with apples this year so soon I hope to make some without sugar for Sophie. She hasn’t started solids yet, but I’m sure it will freeze well. I’d love to say I’m going to make all her baby food but I don’t know how realistic such a goal is for me. We’ll see.
