Jarring applesauce

Who knew jarring was easy?  If I had known earlier, I would have jarred peaches and nectarines and plums and berries.  But I learned that jarring was easy after doing it myself.  My family and I went apple picking last month and I made applesauce and jarred three pints, two of which I gave away.  Thanks to two websites: wholesomebabyfood.com (the recipe) and homefedbaby.com (jarring instructions).

Here is applesauce jarring in pictures:

Apples -- peel, core, slice

Pot for cooking apples; pot for sterilizing jars and cooking jars filled with sauce

Cooked apples -- cinnamon and vanilla extract were added to taste
