Meanwhile, I cut the ends off of the greenbeans and made 2 piles--blanch/freeze and cook immediately. Then, I blanched the beans and laid them out to dry.
|place them in boiling water, for 3 minutes and add to cold water to stop the cooking process.|
|this is the cooling process...|
|after cooking and cooling|
|I use my super sharp cutco knife to cut the corn off the cob|
|I freeze in one big bag and just take out a cup or two when I need it!|
In the meanwhile, Aaron was busy cutting the cores out of the apples and putting them in my awesome applesauce pot to cook down and get super soft.
|I just throw my apples in the pot, add a little bit of water, and turn it on.|
|this is a super heavy pot, it's an old pressure cooker and doesn't burn the apples. This is the apples almost done cooking.|
After the tomatoes and apples are done cooking and cooled, I put them through my Victorio...it looks a lot like THIS but is a much older model. It strains out the skins, and seeds, etc. It makes my tomatoes into tomatoes into juice and my apples into applesauce.
|before it starts doing its thing|
|here it is spitting out all of the yuckies|
|I filled gallon sized bags about half way up, folded them over, and froze them in the pan so they would stack well in the freezer.|
Blessings to you,
