Applesauce and Apple Butter

Note with both of these that you do not *have* to use canning equipment. You may simply freeze your goodies. My batches rarely survive the ten months for apple butter, and eight for the applesauce. Heck, I'm lucky if the applesauce survives until Halloween.

I've said it before, and I repeat: Share the costs of canning equipment with a friend or three. This is a wonderful opportunity to get Mom and/or Grandma in the kitchen to share her secrets for canning, and should not be missed. Dear friends sharing space and canning equipment means dividing the workload and the results of your work. If you're good with the applesauce and your best friend makes fantastic pickles, and another makes a salsa to die for, you all get the products of these talents by sharing equipment.
