The commissary has bags of apples on sale for $1 a bag right now. This is an amazing price because they are normally over $3 per bag. I bought 6 bags today and have already turned 3 bags into 3 quarts of applesauce. I have been trying my hand at canning with a water bath canner. I have made some jams, preserves, syrups, and now applesauce. Some day I hope to move up with a pressure canner but I am loving finding new recipes that can help from having to buy items in the grocery store that have unnecessary ingredients.
