Thanks! I'll read them.

I have not tried a steam juicer. I make juice from apple peels when I make dried apples. I have a Starfit peeler and although it looks like a tinker toy it is an awesome little gadget. I just throw the peels and cores into a large crockpot, fill with water and spices, and let it simmer for awhile. Then strain and put it in the fridge. I do small (1 gallon) batches, so I haven't canned it. My girls can go through a gallon before it goes bad.

I want to try your method, though. Will definitely check out the blog!

I am thankful.

Hi Jenny. I do the same, but I use the tomato strainer and not the apple sauce strainer.
The wholes are smaller and I only have to fun it thru once. Tho it is a very smooth sauce not medium smooth,,,if that makes sense...
I did a blog on using my Victorio...Here's the link.

Have you ever tried a steam juicer?
Makes the best apple, tomato, grape juice ever.
I did a blog on that, too...

I make apple juice by just quartering the apples, steaming it...then with the pulp, I run it thru the victorio and get apple sauce. nothing wasted...

Thanks for the tips.

I halve or quarter the apples and pull the stems off before I simmer them. I can't remember if I started doing that so my little ones could work with them better or why I do that.

I run the peels through two or three times because we alway get more apple sauce from them.

Just trying to strain out every spoonful, 'specially since hubby is turning the crank! emoticon

I am thankful.

Hi Jenny, Don't you simmer the apples til they are soft first. No Need to peel or core. I do. Then it isn't so hard to crank the strainer. And you don't have to do it so many times...just once.
I've never tried straining them raw.

Thank you, Carol! Making applesauce is a family affair at my house. I cut the apples in quarters and remove the stems. Then I dip the apples into a big bowl. My kids take turns moving the apples from the bowl to the strainer hopper while my husband turns the crank. I man the receiving end of the strainer. After all the peels have been through about three times, I take the strained apples and put them in a big pot to season with cinnamon, nutmeg, and (sorry folks) some brown sugar. Then I jar it up in quarts. My kids go through about a quart a week. My husband puts a little half-pint jar of applesauce that has a plastic mayonnaise lid on the jar in their lunch bags everyday. I try to season it to taste like Cracker Barrel fried apples (without the butter). We have a fun time on applesauce day.

I am thankful.

In the original posting, the writer wrote a blog about applesauce . . . here's the first sentence:

"After learning how great my new Victorio Food Strainer is at making homemade applesauce, I was super excited to use it to make Homemade Tomato Sauce."

Here's the link for anyone new to this thread (which contains an embedded link for the applesauce, if anyone needs that info & recipe how-to):
