Just wondering if anyone has advice on where to get a Victorian food strainer for making applesauce. They sell them at the Emergency Essentials store, but they are out of stock right now (in store and online). Any other ideas?

This really isn't the best time to buy them. June-Aug is better.

I've also seen them at Macey's with the canning supplies. I can't remember the price, but maybe around $40. If they don't have one in stock, they may be able to order it for you.

I made applesauce with my blender in october. Just slice & peel the apples, boil them in water & fruit fresh for a bit until they're softened, then blend them up. Add sugar for taste if you want.

Whatever you do , DO NOT get a Back to Basics strainer. They are about 1/2 the price of a Victorio strainer, but the aluminum flakes off into your applesauce. Ask me how I know. !soapbox I paid $55.00 for my Victorio about 6 yrs ago, and I love it.

Thanks everyone for the advice! I figured this wasn't the best time to try and find one, but my dh wanted to get me one for my birthday, so I was trying to shop around and find one. We'll see...maybe we'll just postpone my birthday gift until this summer, or something.

I see them all the time at yard sales or on KSL.com classifieds during the summer. I got a really nice one for less than $5 this past year.

I saw canning supplies on clearance at Target and walmart recently, maybe even smiths. So check the clearance areas. It seems Like i saw a strainer at one of them and couldn't justify it....
HOw's that for a vague not so helpful answer...
