last night I made apple butter from THIS recipe. I must admit, it was exhausting after a long week of work, especially the constant stirring for 1-2 (more like 3) hours. but, it was worth it. look how pretty they are! the bad news: all that effort made only 6 jars.
I will most likely do it all again as I have visions of myself giving them to every single person I know over the holidays. I walk up with a cute little jar (they still need ribbon) and people squeal in delight, "bridget! apple butter! my favorite! you are so talented! how do you do all the magical things that you do!?" and I just shrug shyly in response while handing it over.
