This was our first time making apple butter. We had great fun picking the apples ourselves at MacQueens, although I forgot the camera for that outing. Mary still says “okay, so we got the apples, but when are we going to the Queens?” The whole family got in on this, and I must say, the apple butter is pretty tasty!
Peel, Core, Chop, Peel, Core, Chop, half a bushel apples to Peel, Core, Chop!
Yikes! This is what a 2 year old does to his sister while everyone else is busy!
In the roaster they go.
Soon they look like this:
A watched pot never boils!
Filling the jars
We’re rolling now…
And Viola! Apple Butter, perfect for a fall treat!
