making applesauce

August 12th | older posts

we’ve spent the last few days at grandma & grandpa’s house–enjoying cousins camp
the first of many fun, memory making activities was applesauce.
grandpa anchored the apple peeler, corer, slicer, while the kids took turns spinning the handle.

some of the apples were eaten before the made it into the pan, but nobody minded!

we put all the apples in a big sauce pan with water covering the top and a little bit of sugar.

they simmered for a couple hours and then cooled off in the fridge.
so much fun, and yummy, too!

while the grandparents are the directors, some of the other aunties and I have been playing the roles of camp counselors and camp photographers. it’s been crazy and fun and i’ll probably torture you with more pics in the coming days!!

    Yummy! Looks like alot of fun. Love the Grandma/Grandpa camp. Nina and Nicholas are going camping in the RV "bus" with Nana & Papa next week. Although I'm guessing it'll be mudpies instead of applesauce.
