FRUIT: 1/2 bushel of stayman apples (55 apples)
SOURCE: farmer’s market
COST: $25
RECIPE: Core and coarsely chop the apples, put them in a pot with about 2 cups water. Cook over med-high until they are mushy. I ended up adding a lot of water during the cooking, about 8 cups total, it just depends on your apples. Process the apple pulp through a food mill and return it to a clean pot. The ball blue book says to add about 1/4 cup sugar per 4 apples (about 14 cups in this case) but I only added 10 cups and spices to taste — I always use cinnamon and nutmeg and sometimes use ginger or allspice — this batch had just cinnamon and a bit of nutmeg. Let simmer for about 10-15 minutes being careful not to burn. Hot pack into quart jars and process in a boiling water bath for 20 minutes.
YIELD: 9 quarts, an I lost about 1 quart to scorching
TASTE: yummy

Barbecue Sauce

DATE: 09/19/2009
FRUIT: 4 quarts of tomato puree from the slightly blemished tomatoes in the bushel I got to make canned tomatoes, 24 apples, 4 really big onions
SOURCE: CSA farm, farmer’s market
COST: $34.00
RECIPE: Relish, Sauce, and Chutney – All in One Day, from Animal, Vegetable, Miracle.
YIELD: 14 pints, and about 3/4 pint in the fridge
TASTE: yummy
NOTES: I only make the first sauce and I let it cook down forever, the recipe says 2 hours, I do more like 4. I also puree the sauce with my immersion blender because I want sauce, not relish.
