I stopped into the nearby farmer’s market. The squash were $.89/lb…not a bad price for this early in the season. This price will certainly drop in this area as we move into October and November! The “Molly Delicious” apples are a variety I have not tried before, but they were part of the 50% off section…so I grabbed enough to make some Crockpot Applesauce.
8 “Molly Delicious” apples, 2 tsp lemon juice, couple dashes of cinnamon and 1/2 cup water (and perhaps a sweetener…will see how it tastes when finished…I have not made this variety into applesauce before. My favorite apple for applesauce is the Golden Delicious!).
Set on high and cook for 4 hours in the crockpot. Once softened and juicy, blend or use hand immersion blender to puree, or mash with potato masher for a chunkier applesauce. (The boys will eat this UP this afternoon, I have no doubt!)
Total from Thursday farmer’s market (zucchini and dairy-free cinnamon bread): $6
Total from above trip: $6.52
Total for the week: $75.30
