I BWB canned 7 qts of applesauce per NCHFP's recipe on Thursday and froze 6 qts.
It seemed like there was SO much liquid in the sauce when I was filling jars. Now that I look at the jars, the applesauce is much thicker, not runny at all when jars are tipped. There looks like some little air pockets as well.
I think I remember reading a thread here on adding lemon juice to your applesauce, but the NCHFP recipe does not call for it, so I did not add any.
Should I be concerned about the thickened sauce, air pockets, and no lemon juice??
