Scents of Fall
« on: October 28, 2018, 06:57:38 PM »
Put up 10 pints of Apple Butter today. Not only great stuff, but the smell of fall was in the air in the kitchen and throughout the house all afternoon. Weather was in the low to mid 70's today, perfect. 65 now.

How many apples did it take? What kind of apple did you use?

It took 32 apples, and we used five varieties, Gala, Fuji, Ambrosia, Honey Crisp and Red Apples. We used my sisters recipe which called for baking the apples for 3 hours after cooking on the stove top in 4 cups of water, and then blending with an immersion stick blender.

That sounds terrific.  The mix of apples you used is the same except for one of what a  fellow near us uses to make cider in the fall.  It just seems that the mix of varieties adds so much flavor to the cider compared to using just a couple of types of apples.

up on the farm in SW Virginia,  there was an orchard of Virginia Beauty apples.  Every summer we processed and canned hundreds of quarts of apple sauce and apple butter.  All the work was done in the county extension cannery in the little town of Rural Retreat.

In the interests of consistency- how many/what types of apples? A mash bill would answer other questions...

the apple products turned out well.  On Greg's Dutch Oven biscuits the apple butter was killer.  Dave's Apple Pie was up to standards.    :)

Yeah, something about apples.  Kelly loves the apple butter I brought home.

Lookin' good, Greg! :thumbsup:     It's been years since I had homemade apple butter.  I actually got sick of it when I was a kid because my grandmother 'made up' dozens of quarts of the stuff from bruised windfalls from our orchard at the farm.  When we had our toast for breakfast, you could always count on having a choice of apple butter.....or MORE apple butter to top it off. :doh:   Now, I miss it like I miss a lot of stuff that we took for granted back then. :-\

A lady I know gave us a jar of her apple butter a few years ago.  It was really good, on everything from toast to by the spoonful. 

Looks good Greg.

It's great stuff, and I love how after cooking, the aroma sticks around for a few days. We don't eat a lot of it, we usually end up giving a couple away, and the rest will last us until the following October / November.

Ooh, ooh.  I see a trade with apple butter and apple pie in the works. 

Of course, you know I have some apple pie set aside for Mrs. Yellowyak anyway.

And we both know that there isn't too much of a chance that she will get any of it.

I always bring back some Apple Pie for Stacy, she loves it, but she's a slow consumer, so i end up having most of it.  :)
