Cool Stuff Being Made: Musselman’s Apple Sauce

By March 1, 2008Cool Stuff Being Made


First, blend the apples — Golden Delicious, Yorks and Romes — and start cleaning, peeling, chopping and processing. This week’s Cool Stuff Being Made brings you that American staple, applesauce, courtesy of Knouse Foods and its Ortanna, Penn., processing plant. Robert Binkley, vice president of technical services for Knouse, walks the line with us, finishing with a nice cup of cinnamon-flavored applesauce.

All that steam and sterilization…You know, this is a pretty energy-intensive process, making applesauce.

Thanks to our friends at the Pennsylvania Cable Network for bringing us another look at the manufacturing of the Keystone State.
