A pound of apples is pretty pidly. You'd get a few servings, maybe...
I find it only worth the effort when I get my apples free or dirt cheap (which is every year
) Around apple harvest time, it's just too easy to find organic apples. *Someone* you know or their neighbor/friend/second-cousin-twice-removed has an apple tree with the fruit just rotting that they've done nothing to (no pesticides, etc) and will beg you to come pick them, so they don't have to pick up rotted fruit from the ground.
At $1.98/lb, it's def. cheaper to just by the applesauce! I'll only buy
for canning when I can find local organic apples for around 50 cents/lb.
