How to Make Homemade Applesauce Using a Food Mill
One of the first things I like to do when the Fall season arrives is to make Homemade Apple Sauce. And it’s so easy with a food mill! All the apples go right into the pot with their peels, cores, and stems. Every bit of goodness gets cooked out of those apples. And once everything has cooked down, I just run it through my food mill and…voilà! Applesauce!

Make applesauce and get in a little exercise
A food mill may be old-fashioned, but it can do the job of so many kitchen appliances and all without electricity! All it takes is a little human energy. And who doesn’t need a little workout? 😉
So give the food mill a try. You’re going to love how easy it is to make all sorts of things—applesauce, tomato sauce, soups, and more—and never peel a fruit or vegetable again! Maybe you’ll even lower your electric bill in the process too.
