Living in West Virginia, it is simply not possible to notice when apple season rolls around. There’s almost as many apple trees as corn stalks as people, I swear.
Last year, we found a great place to buy bushels of apples at a great price. So the first thing I did with them was to make apple sauce and apple butter. I say that in that order because, according to www.pickyourown.org, that’s the order you need. You make apple butter FROM apple sauce.
I used their delicious recipe for the applesauce and apple butter, jarred it and finally, this weekend, popped the top on the last jar. My only regret in this was using such big jars because we do not use it all that often and so it goes to waste. However, you live and learn, right? So this year’s batch will go into smaller jars and get to be used up quickly!
This weekend, I baked some biscuits (not from scratch) and woke my family up to this. IT WAS DELICIOUS! Follow the link to pickyourown.org and make some this season.
