Guess what I've been doing ?? haha!!

Just can't seem to quit making apple butter.

Getting jars filled and ready. 6 soldiers ready for battle.

I guess I better get to cracking those Walnuts and Hickory nuts.

I remember Grandma and all the relatives pitching in to help make apple butter. We still have her huge copper kettle that they used. I have her recipe for apple butter in her handwriting. In the margin she wrote that they started at 5 a.m. and quit at 6 p.m. It smelled so good and it was fun to have everyone together to make it.

BigBear, If you were closer I'd hook ya up man. It's great.

Amy, I would love to have a big copper kettle to make mine. I know some people back in WV that use one and make it outside over a fire. That would be a lot of fun. Liv has some recipe's in her grandmothers hand writing and we talked about projecting it on the kitchen wall and painting in on as a border on the wall. That would be pretty cool.

Gen, Yum is the word of the day.

Thanks to all for your comments.
