Canned apples

After trying new recipes for canning apples, I still had enough left over to get back to basics: good ol' canned apples. Managed to fill these 3 quarts. Each seal was a success so yahoo!

OK, we need some help. We bought a package of mixed winter squash seeds as well as hubbard. Had a great crop. Removed squash from vines, let them cure and last night we cooked one. Some kind of round squash like acorn. the issue was cutting the rind. I'm thinking of getting out the meat saw. One site said to drop hubbard squash on the floor and break it as the rind was so hard? The butternut squash we normally grow doesn't have a rind that hard
How do you cut squash? We did put the squash on the grill with butter and baked it a half hour before we put the meat on the BBQ and the squash was great

Reciprocal saw? Hammer a machete through it?

Don’t mess around. Go grab the chain saw! On a serious note, I use a machete to split my squash. Four out of five of them are for the chickens but it works just fine for those headed to the oven, as well. You don’t want too thick of a knife if you go that route but you also need something sturdy enough to stay straight...

I have a fairly heavy chef's knife that I use, I used it to carve up a delicata squash this weekend, in fact.

The squash pieces were roasted along with potato cubes and onion wedges, it all tasted great.

A chef's knife works fine for the winter squash that we grow. I tried a blue hubbard one season and it did have a very hard rind. I didn't think the amount of usable squash and the flavor were worth the extra trouble.
