Canning Apples

I'm trying to get back into canning again.  The ones in the first 2 bays are this years and the other bay is 2015 and 2016.

I found apples but unfortunately my KitchenAid mixer won't turn and my hand blender died.  Thus they are on my husbands desk for repair.

I'm trying to figure out the best way to deal with ugly apples. I was able to get some juice out to make jelly.  They are so lumpy it is useless to use my apple peeler corer.

I also end up with little bits of the outside because I grounded up and then I put it through my kitchen strainer.

My eldest so I thought would hate it the most gobbled it up and then the one who I thought would love it the most was like no thank you Mom try again.

Here is what I made in 2015-16.  Much of this has been eaten.  In 2016 we moved from Iowa to Michigan so I didn't can as much.
