I’ve finished my last batch of Apple Butter for the fall. I so want to do more but I need to set boundaries. I am swamped with garden planning- but I’m so much into the producing. I really enjoy making it with my children but the cooking, mixing, canning- I do It all. I am allergic to raw apples so they help with the washing, coring and slicing. I use a recipe that involves the crock pot- and it can take up to 24 hours to reduce by half. The house smells divine while it cooks.
This year I will be selling the apple butter at my co-ops and out of the trunk at church. I advertised on the homemade goodies BST Facebook group and got asked to sell at the local Fall Farmer’s Market. I’m kinda excited.
The knitting of the scarves has commenced and that activity will fill my spare time – as long as I get this new garden planned and planted.
Hope you would like some Fresh NC Apple Butter!
