    tomorrow, the oldest and i have a chance to get all the apples we want, and there are lots!
    can you make applesauce, apple rings, or pie filling, etc and freeze it? if so, how? i dont have a canner so i am trying to think of alternatives.

    My mom has apple trees and she peels them, slices them, blanches them and them freezes them in the right quantities for pies or other recipes she is planning through out the year. Usually she does a half way full gallon bag with all the air taken out and cooled before freezing.

    I make applesauce and freeze it in old yogurt containers. It keeps for a year.
