What You’ll Do
Using fresh apples from Michigan, Edible Alchemy Co-Op manager Andrea Mattson walks you through the applesauce-making process and offers pointers on canning so you can make more at home.
Hands-On Canning Lesson
Learn the history of canning before splitting into small groups to weigh, wash, and chop apples sourced from Michigan.
Customize Your Applesauce’s Flavor
Experiment with Edible Alchemy’s spice cabinet, or learn tried-and-true flavor combinations.
Learn How to Preserve Your Sauce
As your custom-labeled jar boils in water for about ten minutes, it becomes sterilized and preserves the applesauce.
Take Home Your Own Applesauce
Leave the lesson with a pint jar of applesauce, as well as the recipe and instructions needed to make and preserve more at home.
