Foley Food Mill: Get One!
Meet the Foley Food Mill. Best possible tool for making homemade applesauce. It makes other foods too, particularly homemade tomato juice, but homemade applesauce is so delicious, so delightful to children, so astonishing to grownups, that the Foley Food Mill is worth owning just for this one use. Check google for sources. Look for the two quart stainless steel version. The larger 3.5 quart size seems not to work as well. This hand tool will never need batteries. It will not wear out. Plan to give it to your favorite great-grandchild.
