Apples are still in season (since they are so good at storage) and there is something special about warm homemade applesauce on a cold windy New England day.

With the added ginger in this (which you can also buy from a local CT farm) you can warm right up!

Steve Munno is the leader of the crew at @massaro_farmers and just celebrated a birthday!!!!
He and his team faithfully work their 10 acres of organic produce to sell to the community, to schools, AND on top of all that, donate to local food pantries!

With a mission statement of “Keep Farming. Feed People. Build Community.” it makes sense they want everyone to have access to some local healthy veggies from their farm!
