We made our apple butter this past Saturday. All last week we were watching the weather predictions. Monday the Weather Channel predicted 40% chance of rain…by Saturday it was 80%. It rained most of the day but we had shelter, plenty of apples and people to stir. All in all it was a good day. The final product is dark, sweet, smooth and rich. It does, unfortunately, have a slight bitter aftertaste. I think we might have scorched it a bit. Oh well, we were all pleased with the results.
