Apples are great for canning. Why? Applesauce of course! Applesauce is easy to make and enjoyed by most – including even the pickiest of kids. The hardest part of the process is peeling the apples; nothing a peeler can’t solve!
The best apple varieties for canning include a mix of sweet and tart; mixing multiple different types of apples will render the best flavor. Try Jonagold, Braeburn, and Golden Delicious for a sweet, tart experience.
