Old Fashion Apple Butter Stirring

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 2014 are and Oct. 4, 11 and 18.

Pumpkin Butter

As a treat for our last day (October 25) of the 2014 season, we will be making Pumpkin butter. A new Fall favorite here at Yoder's. If you like pumpkin you will enjoy this. Not sure about it? Try a sample. It is really good on pancakes!

Also on our last day, Aunt Mary will be here making her homemade lye soap. This is an old fashioned soap that is still used today. Come see how it has been made for many years on farms throught the area. Take a bar home with you. It is great for stains.
