Productive Senior Citizens and Raw Apple Sauce

This is Stella. My apple tree. Ok, I get that not everyone names their trees but Stella deserves a name. She has been here for a very long time. Stella is the biggest apple tree I have ever seen. With a trunk of over 9 feet around, she just might be over 100 years old assuming that she was planted when the house was built. Showing signs of her age, some of her largest branches have been dying off. I have been keeping a watchful eye.




Stella surprised me this year. She produced a bumper crop of beautiful, healthy apples. I don’t spray my trees so the apples can get pretty wormy by the time they hit the ground. But this year, not a worm to be found. Just healthy, tasty apples. Lots of healthy, tasty apples. Stella is one heck of a productive senior citizen.

In honor of her huge harvest this year I bring you Stella’s Apple Sauce. Believe me, there will be more apple recipes to come. I have to keep up with the old gal! This will freeze well so take advantage of the season and make extra! I also use this in many of my cookies and to come.

    This looks great, can’t wait to make it for myself and by 7-month old daughter. By the way, it is not odd to name your trees. I have a Mr. Maple, Lady Willow, and Piney and I love them all! Keep up the good work.

    Any suggestion for substituting agave syrup? I’m fructose intolerant… so both agave and honey are a big no no for me….

      Use what ever sweetener you like to use.
