I was able to pick about 60lbs of apples for free today. I have never canned before but am very excited to try water bath canning. I made a batch of applesauce today that I put in jars and planned on freezing because I don't have access to the canning supplies today. My mom is bringing all the supplies to me in 6 days. Is it possible for me to either keep those jars in the fridge or freeze them and then process them when I get the stuff I need to do so? Do I need to heat the applesauce back up or can I bring the jars back to room temperature and then put them into the water bath?

I'd re-heat the applesauce and then can it. Kind of a pain in the neck, but technically the safe way to do it, just in case.
Busy keeping up with three children and an awful lot of chickens!
