    Default Frozen apples to apple sauce?

    Dh just called and we will be getting 1/2 beef(yearling) in a few weeks. I need to make room in the freezer.

    I have tons of apples that I had frozen last year(I had 5 or 6 5-gallon pails). We aren't going through them that fast. I was thinking I use alot of apple sauce, could I cook them down and preserve them? I use apple sauce in baking alot. I have lots of jars already, so it wouldn't be an expense there.

    Can this be done?

    You could can them...or...yes you know what I will say....dehydrate them....You can store EVEN MORE when they are dehydrated...then you can use them for more than just applesauce.

    Great idea - canning apple pie filling (or apple butter or applesauce). I'd only suggest using a TESTED recipe (tested for heat penetration and pH and tested AFTER it's been subjected to storage).

    http://www.uga.edu/nchfp/how/can_02/...e_filling.html

    It's not that long ago USDA cautioned people NOT to can pie fillings at home because of food safety problems. It's important NOT to use windfall apples (exposure to bacteria), and you should use a recipe that has bottled lemon juice as an ingredient in it - to assure the food is acid enough for water bath canning. Dr. Stan Wallin, Food Technologist at the University of Nebraska, developed safe recipes and procedures for making home canned apple and cherry pie fillings.

    Ball Blue Book recipes are tested and safe to use (just be sure to use a recent copy of the book).

    Thanks! I found an applesauce on that one Grainlady

    These weren't fallen apples, they were picked in the fall, but this was a huge bumper crop year, and there were so many, that now I need to make room, becuase despite eating crisp a couple times a month, it seems to have made no dent. I prefer the canned ones
