These crabapples we picked turned into crabapple butter and a good time with new & old friends.
We milled out the seeds and skins: we boiled the crabapples a bit then put them through the food mill before boiling the resulting mush further into the sauce/butter. The food mill took some technique to use efficiently, but I didn’t work on that ‘station’ much so I’m not sure what the technique was exactly!
A month or two went by with the canned crabapple in the cupboard, and I gave one can to my brother and enjoyed one in my house. Including crabapple toast!
