Homemade: Apple Sauce
Updated: Jul 30
It's the end of apple season and the local varieties are endless. Here in Nova Scotia, apple season can go right up until the end of October. The store shelves are still filled with delicious apples and it just so happens, so is your pantry.
There's only so many apples you are able to eat in a day before they start turning brown on you. Why not preserve a couple by making an easy homemade apple sauce. No, don't be silly it's not just for kids, but they will love it too! Making homemade apple sauce is WAY better than store bought because you can control the taste and how fresh the apples are.
