Saturday morning we jumped into the car and ended up here
The NC Apple Festival in Hendersonville, NC.
This little trip resulted in labor on Labor Day.
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!!
