Making Applesauce

We made Applesauce in class this week and the children loved it! Parents had brought in apples from a trip to the orchard. We cleaned them and the children helped turn the handle on the peeler/slicer/corer contraption. They loved seeing the spirals of peels coming off of the apples!
