#298 - Making Old Fashioned Apple Butter

We go to church with the sweetest couple that makes apple butter every fall the old fashioned way.....

Over a fire!

They made it on Tuesday and started in the morning and let it simmer over the fire all day. They had some help from a few neighbors with the stirring. We got there right before it was finished, so we got to help with the canning process.

They add red hots for flavor and coloring.

Holly and Anna wiped the rims of the jars. Big time hands on lesson!

We took 3 jars home and we now officially have 2 1/8 jars left. :P

It's very good!
This is the view from their subdivision. It was a clear and gorgeous day!

Psalm 40:5
"Many, O LORD my God, are Your wonderful works
Which You have done;
And Your thoughts toward us
Cannot be recounted to You in order;
If I would declare and speak of them,
They are more than can be numbered."
