Old Fashion Apple Butter
The cool autumn days mean lots of hard work for
traditional Amish families. The harvesting of crops and gardens tend to
keep a family busy.
A favorite of the Yoders’ is Old Fashion Apple Butter Stirring. Uncle
Andy and Aunt Mattie, with some help from their boys, get the 30 gallon
copper kettle on the fire in the morning and begin the process of apple
butter. Do you know how many apples go in a 30-gallon batch? When you
visit, you can take a turn stirring and try a sample too! They stir all
day and fill up half pint jars to be sold. Dates of Apple butter
stirring for 2017 are Oct. 7, 14, 21 and 28.
