What to Give the Man Who Has Everything

Homemade applesauce, here in a preliminary stage.  I canned a few jars for my father’s 79th birthday.

Applesauce is surprisingly easy to make.  Ingredients list: apples.  Cooking method: add a little water to peeled and cored apples, cook on low heat in a covered pan until fairly soft, then use a blender on a stick to blend everything smooth.  Elapsed time: about half an hour. If the apples are very sour, add some maple syrup.  Some people like applesauce with cinnamon.  In that case, just add a half teaspoon of cinnamon or so.  That’s all there is to it.

    Yes, they are in coils. I have a special little machine for peeling, coring, and slicing apples. I’ll post a photo of it soon. If you do anything much with apples, this machine cuts the time and labor of peeling to about 10% of doing it by hand.
