Applesauce & Salsa

So last night Connor had his first Gymnastics session of the fall! We enrolled him in the 3-5 class instead of the walking-3 class that he's been in for the last year and a half. We were a little worried that he would do horrible and not listen to his teacher, but overall he did GREAT. I was so proud of him, just watching him do what he was suppose to do. It was nice to see him do so good! Obviously he didn't listen the entire time, he is only 3 and it is a 50 minute class, but compared to everyone else he didn't seem to be the worst kid in class, YAY!!!

So on Sunday the 5th me and Jessica decided to have another canning session! In the morning Scott, me & Connor drove out to Door Creek Orchard to pick some apples to make applesauce. Overall we bought just under 10lbs (which is what we needed). Approximately 5 lbs of McIntosh & 5 lbs of Gala. Connor always has a ton of fun with this, cause he can eat as many different kinds as he wants! So after getting the apples, I started the applesauce by cutting & cooking the apples. By the time Jessica came over with all the Salsa stuff I was ready to grind (she had the attachment) the apples and get them in cans & processed. Applesauce was really easy to do, and I would definitely do it again! We managed to make 6 pints and 1 1/2 pint of Applesauce. The Salsa on the other hand....took FOREVER!! There was just so many things to cut & slice and peel...we had to make Scott help us, otherwise we would have never gotten done with it! We ended up finishing at 5:30 p.m. (I wanted to get done by 4:30 b/c we were going over to Aunt Missy's house). We ended up with 12 pints & 3 1/2 pints and a plastic container filled for Jessica to take home. I think we decided if we do Salsa again, Jessica is going to bring over her food processor, and we're also going to wear gloves (both of our hands KILLED for like a day afterwords because of the jalapenos and other peppers we used).
