Canning apple sauce and apple butter

Hello everyone!

I wanted to share with you all what my family was up to last week. We were canning up a storm. Here are some photos of what we do. We usually don't use a pressure canning method. We put our clean jars in a grill pan over the stove and get them hot. Then we pour our mixture into the jar as you see below from our crock pot.

Then my sister and I put lids on the jars that are hot as well and put lids as well. Then we cover all of our jars overnight and they seal.

Then you have lovely jars of apple sauce to eat and give away! My mother has always done this method in our household. She says her parents did it the old fashioned way and she wanted an easier method. So this is how we do it with our crock pot, stove for heating jars, and hands to put the lids on.

If you have any questions about canning just comment. God bless!
In Christ,

YUM! My family used to can every year. Your post makes me year for the canned goods - NOT the canning process. ;)
