This was just the first batch. I did two of these pots full and still have a bunch of apples left. I cooked these until they were soft and in the meantime got out my Presto Strainer ($10 at the flea market years ago).
When the apples were soft enough I drained the juice in a colander with some cheesecloth in it (you didn't really think I was going to waste all that lovely juice did you?) and then ran the apples through the strainer.
Most of these apples were Red Delicious which made the nicest, sweet, pink applesauce. For each pan full I added just a half cup of sugar. I then put it in jars (pints) and water bath canned it at for 10 minutes.
The juice was also so put into jars (quarts) with just a quarter cup sugar for each batch. Two of the quarts I water bath canned for 10 minutes the other two and a half (I used a regular jar since I was out of jars) I left to put in the frig so we can drink some today and tomorrow.
