Today is another applesauce day. It will probably be our last BIG day for applesauce. I have forty quarts to show for my effort.
Mrs ERJ went to a seminar. Bella is up north and Kubota is somewhere other than home. So it is just me and the two dogs.
One of the little tricks I picked up this year is to use the turkey-fryer to expedite the last load of applesauce. As a steamer, it outruns the kettle in the house where I process the jars. Consequently, I have enough for an additional seven-to-twelve jars when I am done steaming the apples.
Since that kettle is running in parallel with the one in the house it trims about 90 minutes off the tired end of my day.
I don't know how people who work for a living manage to blog. It cuts into a man's day something awful.
