'Tis the Season for Canning - Apples

Apple season will be here before we know it. Hard to believe it will be August this week. Fall is right around the corner so get ready to can apples.

Did you know there are 2500 different varieties of apples grown in all 50 of the United States? That means anyone can get apples anywhere.

Picking out Apples

1. Select firm, bruise free apples.

2. The color will vary depending on the variety so don't trust color to tell when an apple is ripe.

3. They should be crisp and firm.


42 pounds apples = 12 - 15 quarts of applesauce

36 apples = 1 gallon apple cider
