I've been happy with the taste of my homemade applesauce, using gala, even though other types are suggested more often.
Twelve pounds gave me 8 pints of applesauce. No sugar added, nor needed. Mmm. Cost? $20.86 for the apples, making each pint about $2.60 each. Not bad considering I have to pay top dollar. I'm waiting for them to go on sale before I buy another 30#.
I had to purchase another box of pint jars to can this. I hope I have place to store them all, as they are emptied. Ha!
Although the seeds and cores go into the compost, the skins went to the goats and hens. Boy were they all happy too.
