Apple Butter

Stirring apple butter

This past Saturday was the first Heart to Hearth Cookery apple butter demonstration.  To prepare for the day, bushels of apples were pared and gallons of cider were reduced by half.  The picture to the left shows the stirring of the apples and cider for HOURS!  Many of the festival goers (both adults and children) participated by using the stirrer designed for one, two or three pairs of hands.  As the apple butter was thickening and about an hour prior to removing the butter from the kettle, spices were added.  The taste was worth ALL the hours of preparation.  It was a fun day!  Apple butter demonstrations are now available by Heart to Hearth Cookery and will be added to the website at
