I canned these last night after work. I got four pints of pears, and canned them in white grape juice. The pears cost $2.50, because they were seconds, and the juice cost $.99, and there is still plenty left. The applesauce is made with Spartan apples. It turned out really thick, and not very sweet, so I thinned it with some of the white grape juice (thereby adding some sweetness). I got four pints of applesauce as well.
I think I'll use the apples for something other than applesauce. The other applesauce I made was so smooth, whereas this applesauce feels grainy. I'm learning as I go!
Tonight I went out to the garden and picked just over 9 pounds of tomatoes. I'm going to make ketchup with them! There are still lots of green tomatoes out there. I'm sure I'll be picking tomatoes up till the first frost!
