I checked our apple tree yesterday, and decided to snag a few of the big ones. I ended up with 3 large grocery bags full of apples! Since daddy was home, I handed baby to him and started cutting & coring. I prepared 13 quarts for canning with a simple juice of no sugar, just juice, water, and spices. I had 3 casualties from accidentally touching the jars together, so I still have 10 good quarts. Plus, I have that many or more apples left uncut!
