I few months ago, I won a pint of apple butter from Susan of Open Mouth, Insert Fork. I was so excited because the apple butter has been made by the Allen family in Sardis, West Virginia for more than 150 years. Every fall, over the course of three days, they make 150 pints of apple butter in the same copper cauldron that's been in the family for seven generations. Now that's tradition!
As for the apple butter? It reminded me of a batch of Pumpkin Butter I made recently. So much better than the store-bought stuff. It was slightly sweet, redolent with spices, and perfect spread on toast for afternoon tea.
Thanks again Susan!
