Applesauce Extravaganza

Once again it was time this week to head over to Carver Orchards in Cosby for this year’s Applesauce Day. For almost 20 years, I’ve enjoyed Carvers beautiful setting, with the Smoky Mountains in the distance, to kick off the applesauce making. Recently, the folks at Carvers have opened an Apple House Restaurant, where you’ll get apple cider, apple fritters, and apple butter to go with your breakfast, lunch or dinner.

For sauce, I always get a few bushels of Jonathan apples, but the orchard house carries a couple dozen varieties. It’s a neat place to visit, like a small farmer’s market with all kinds of local produce.

Once we get the apples home, out comes the trusty old Squeezo Strainer, which I bought in 1977. ¬†Cook the apples in a little cider, grind them through the strainer, into the canning jars, and another cooking in the jars, and you’re all set with incredibly fresh sauce for the next 6 months or so.

As usual, please stop in and visit me to see the complete display of Smoky Mountain Photography at the William Britten Gallery in Gatlinburg, TN.

Apple Sauce!
