How can my kids help?Your kids can help make this entire recipe minus the coring part. When I used to teach Kindergarten, we would make applesauce every year and this is how we did it :) All students helped! Store your applesauce in an airtight container in the fridge from 7 to 10 days. Or once completely cooled place in freezer bags and freeze for up to 2 months
