The applesauce is pink because a) I am rad, and b) I cook the apples with the skins on and run them through my super food mill removing said skins after they have left behind some of their color molecules.
I’m positively loopy from trying to wrap my head around back-to-school. I forget every year what a sea of paperwork there is to deal with and how many different adjustments need to be made to every aspect of our lives. It’s nuts.
How’s everyone else doing with the craziness? Or maybe I shouldn’t even be asking. I figure you were nice enough to read about my big problems, I should reciprocate. But really I wish we were all talking about amazing fiction we’ve read recently. Or the price of tea in China. Anything but School and Kids.
Oh, and here’s a picture of the applesauce waiting to go into the canner. Isn’t it lovely?

Sprinkle of ground cinnamon
Sprinkle of brown sugar. or a drizzle of honey, or maple syrup
In a small bowl, top the applesauce with the butter, cinnamon, and sugar. Serve.
