What types of glass jars/bottles are you collecting? Also, I have an empty ink cartridge for you. Are you wanting to learn how to make applesauce or just try it? It you want to learn how to make it, I would be happy to spend an hour with you and show you how.

I’m collecting any clear ones! I want to use them as vases for the wedding, and might end up bundling a few of them together on each table. I was planning to just try applesauce because it’s one of those foods I grew up saying I didn’t like, but I honestly can’t remember the last time I actually tried it. It would be fun to make together if you wanted to, but I just don’t know if I’ll even like it! We should definitely do something together though!

I will start collecting bottles for you. I don’t like applesauce that comes from the store. I do love the homemade style. So if you’d like to give it a try it would be fun to do, it’s very easy and doesn’t take much time.
