Why did I not hear about this invention 20 years ago? Apparently this type of food mill has been around for some time, and I’m glad I finally found out about the handy, dandy applesauce maker that has taken the chore out of making applesauce. Not even close to work.
This easy: wash apples, cut in half, cook until soft, put in hopper and turn handle. No peeling, no coring, no removing seeds or stems. The applesauce comes out one side, and the peels, stems, and seeds come out the end.
We purchased this food mill from Lehman’s on the internet, but I’ve seen other brands out there that appear to do the same thing. I really like the suction base that allows you to attach it on any solid surface. The only downfall I can think of, is that it doesn’t wash itself. Good thing I have teenage girls that love to wash dishes!
