How-To Video: Canning Applesauce

Halloween is almost upon us, thus canning season is about to move over to make room for BAKING season :) I was scrambling to finish up a batch of applesauce before I left on a vacation last week. I wanted to do a little video tutorial to add to the step-by-step photo instructions I put together a few years ago. Hopefully it is helpful for you if you are new to canning!

How to Can Applesauce

Tattler Reusable Canning Lids

In the video I mentioned using reusable canning lids. I gave a more in depth review of the lids a few weeks ago in my post about canning peaches. They are awesome and I can’t wait to get more. Yay!

    Okay, so the only water that you add is just a little at the bottom of your pot? And then how much sugar did you add? I love apple sauce and I have a bunch of apples that my in-laws brought out from BC. I’ve been wanting to tackle apple sauce, but the last time I did it was really involved! So I’ve been putting it off. This seems way easier!!

      I did about a cup and a half of sugar for that huge pot of apples. It makes for a really good sweet applesauce. You can do it to taste while you are cooking it and use more or less depending on what your family prefers. I do a little bit of water in the bottom of the pan, then if it seems too thick you can add a little more while it’s cooking and while you puree it. It’s really easy and flexible, hard to mess up on.

        Thanks so much! It worked beautifully! I added cinnamon and nutmeg to mine. Tastes great.

    Thanks for the video tutorial. I did my first canning a few weeks ago and put up 15 pints of apple butter! It is sooo yummy and was sooo easy, I don’t know why I was so afraid to try it! I told my husband now that I’ve been bit by the bug having a garden next year is non-negotiable! lol
