On the way home from Orkney Springs I saw a sign that said "Apples for Sale" of course my husband just loved the idea of turning around on a very winding road to head back to get them. we stopped and bought apples from Paughs orchard.
We bought Apple cider also, soooo good, I make my butter with that too.
Apples cost $18.00 a bushel. A bushel makes a lot of sauce, plus I made a couple of pies to freeze to have at Thanksgiving. I will just pop them in the oven.
to make my butter I cook the apples, put them in blender to puree.
my spices are clove, little sugar, cinnamon, mace , and butter. I used the apple cider I purchased in the making of the apple butter also.
I processed mine for 15 minutes in a hot water bath.
My husband has already opened a jar, he likes it served with pork or beef, but he likes just about anything served with pork or beef.
