Apples -> applesauce

This is the first big batch of “compostables” that I had (I mean besides my children!).  It was worth a picture because they were the detritus from preparing a batch of homemade applesauce based on her grandma’s recipe (secret ingredients: apples, water & sugar).  Of couse, my children still vastly prefer the jarred stuff, despite the incredible taste of the fresh stuff.  Also interesting is the economics of applesauce.  I haven’t worked out the precise prices & volumes, but it seems clear that despite getting most of the apples at 50 cents/pound, jarred applesauce is still cheaper.  That sucks!
