Apple Butter & Snowmen

So, a guy asks if I want some apples from his apple trees cuz he's got a gazillion laying around. I tell him i'll take a few dozen so I can stock up on apple butter (that and my family had been hounding me to make more).

Let me tell ya...three 5 gallon buckets is NOT a few dozen...more like 10-12! So I used 5 dozen to make up 4 batches of my slow cook apple butter this weekend. It made just over a dozen pint jars. We love to eat apple butter with pork chops! Ever try it? Oh it's sooo scrumptious!

You can find the recipe in the September issue of The Olde Prairie Register.

I'm still debating on if I should make more with the ramining 5-6 dozen apples...lol.

I finished up a snowman yesterday. She is musical just like my last snowman (who is now back on ebay due to a nonresponsive/nonpaying bidder). She has some ice for sale! I love the colors and found the fabric this weekend and knew exactly what I wanted to do with it! I will be working on the pattern for her in the near future.
