Canning Applesauce Again

Remember that big bag of apples I got at Hollabaugh's farm? I finally made most of it into applesauce today. What beautiful and delicious apples they are!

I used my new bargain find of an apple peeler and corer, which worked really well. Just could not get the hang of peeling apples like my Grandma Rice. She could peel an apple fast, with the skin very thin and all in one piece...even better than my new gadget. Fortunately, this peeler/corer works well for me.

Pictured is one of the small canning jars I used from Grandma Rice. I had to find the rubber rings that help to seal the glass bale wire canning jars. I believe it worked well, but cannot press on the lid to check if it seals. Anyone know how to do that? NOTE: My sister told me to just give a firm tug on the ring and if there is no give, then it is sealed. Or she said to turn it over to check for leaks. Thanks, Deb!
