Bill:  I went to Christensen’s Apple Orchard recently near Waupaca.  I bought 2 pecks of Honey Crisp for fresh eating.   If you put them in zip lock bags in the refrigerator, they keep really fresh for several months.  I also bought Cortlands to make applesauce.  I used a really simple recipe for the crock pot.  I used 2/3 cup brown sugar and 1/3 cup white sugar.  The applesauce was tasty, but it turns out Cortlands are a little too firm so the sauce was very chunky.   I made a second batch of applesauce today using Mcintosh apples.  It tasted great.  Nothing better than warm applesauce topped with a little vanilla ice cream.
