This little trip resulted in labor on Labor Day.

Apple Butter

Actually making apple butter wasn't labor intensive for me at all. My Crock-Pot did most of the work. The apples, sugar, and spices simmered for 14 hours. The three different types of apples (Gala, Jonathan, Cortland) and the slow simmering produced an outstanding apple butter. And yes, we sampled some tonight for supper. Mmmm, Mmmm, Goood!!

That looks like a delightful festival; wish I'd known about it, would have gone. I need to google.

well dang, I haven't been to the Apple Festival since we left SC. It used to be our favorite start of fall trip! My favorites were the mutsu apples and the apple ice cream!
