I'm back! Yes, we do have Granny Smith apples here in the US, Mad. As you know they are a crisp, somewhat tart green apple. I find them totally PERFECT for an apple pie! But they are too tart for applesauce and I have to add sugar, which I prefer to not do. The Honeycrisp is also a great apple for eating. Here in Missouri we use one called Jonathan for making apple butter. But last year I found the perfect apple for making applesauce and only adding cinnamon and nutmeg, but no sugar. It's a Jonagold which is a cross between the more tart Jonathan and the sweeter Golden Delicious. But due to a killing late frost last spring, they didn't have any!! So I got half a bushel of Jonathan and half a bushel of Golden Delicious. I think we're going to make the applesauce this week, so I'm hoping it will be good!

So, personal preferences, Draclvr !!

I like my apple sauce to be quite "tart" and in fact, although I do add a very small amount of sugar, I also add lemon juice to make sure it stays zingy lol

[And I do the same for apple pies - where I also use Granny Smiths.]

We do have Jonathon apples here in the UK and I've bought them very occasionally but they are not a particular favourite for me.

I'm not a huge fan of Jonathons either... but people here make apple butter with them which uses large quantities of sugar and spices. They do make an excellent apple butter!

It's a "thing" here! Properly done, it's a couple of bushels of apples peeled, cored and sliced and placed into a huge copper kettle over a small wood fire. 10 pounds of sugar and spices like cinnamon and nutmeg are added. It is stirred constantly for MANY hours with a special wooden paddle until it becomes very thick and dark as the sugars caramelize. It is then preserved in glass jars. It is a family affair with everyone taking turns on the paddle. Our copper kettle and wooden paddle are over 150 years old!

We get about 15 different types of apple here in BC, though I've never heard of Jonathan apples.

Apple butter is a "thing" here, too. My grandmother also used to make peach butter, which was heavenly. She never gave anyone her recipe, preferring it to be a secret, so it died with her.

Awww, Hagatha, that is sad that the secret died with her.

Hope you all are having a most wonderful day! We started the day with a bit of drizzle

Hubby and I started watching Westworld last night..Wow !

Good morning everyone laugh

I brought a pot of French dark roast coffee for the breakroom this morning

Apple butter is wonderful ... remember it as a kid when I lived in New England

Peach butter sounds heavenly ...

Hagatha, has anyone in the family tried to recreate the recipe?

Happy Sunday everyone

I think I almost prefer peach butter to apple butter on toast!

Haven't decided what is on the agenda for today... just a nice peaceful morning drinking coffee with the windows open!

Soot, I've been meaning to ask one of my siblings if they managed to tease out at least the basics of the peach butter recipe. Both of them are serious cooks and would have been curious. My aunt, who is also a great cook, thought she had the recipe but it was never quite the same.

It's a lovely day here. We have a few chores around the garden, but I was hoping for a drive somewhere, and maybe lunch. We'll have to see how it goes.

Draclvr 🙂

Thanks for the video link.

What a labour intensive thing it is to make this butter !!

But it seems you all think it's worth it dance

Mad, like I said, it's a family affair and an excuse to get together! You can also do it the easy way in a crock pot, but where's the fun in that! I guess it's kind of like the big Italian families get together and make tomato sauce over an open fire all day.

That apple butter recipe sounds so good. My neighbor has an apple tree that he always lets go - and I have been thinking of hopping over the fence to fetch me a basket of them. Of course, I am too lazy to stir for a long time - I have a hard time when making my cream of tomato soup to stir for 10 minutes! but, what a neat way to get people together to all take a turn. It almost sounds like a barn raising party - where everyone chips in. My packers are currently winning, so I am a happy camper today!

Family, glad you are watching football instead of court shows today! I thought it was strange that you posted court shows because I know how you love football...

Hi all,
Long time lurker, first time visitor smile
Been watching the football with family, keeping one eye on the Red Sox (talk about just falling in) and just about to get stuck into this weeks Uni, all part of managing our local lockdown.
A glass of bubbles beckons later yes
