You know what this picture means, right? It's apple butter time. I didn't make it apple picking this year, so instead I went to the grocery store and selected from the many varieties there. I tried my best to pick "local apples" so I at least felt like I was helping the local community.
I made five huge batches of apple butter this year - one to make my yearly stash; one with friends who wanted to learn; and the final for a class I taught to a group of friends who wanted to learn something about canning. I'm not set for an entire year!
HERE's my recipe.
