The Season's First Batch of Applesauce

This season's apple trees have been producing tons and tons of fruit.

We won't be picking apples for several more weeks, but here at my Bedford, New York farm, the trees are just brimming with juicy, delicious apples. I have many apple trees here - the large ones were on the property when I bought it, and are believed to be at least 60-years old. I also have espaliered apple trees that I planted soon after I moved to the area - and of course, I have more apple trees planted in the orchard. Soon, we will have lots and lots of apples for pies, tarts, cakes, and sauces. Yesterday, my housekeeper, Sanu, made a small batch of sauce using some of the apples that had fallen to the ground - it is such an easy process.
