Making Apple Butter

We had a great little apple tree in the yard, and it produced a lot of apples. So we decided to make apple butter. Of course we didn’t have much in the way of the right tools for making this easy, so it was largely done the hard. It was a lot of work. As you can see, the guys did most of it.

I seem to be missing the next couple pictures. One of a crockpot full of apple sauce (which is what you have after the skinning and pressing through a strainer: Only one pot of apple sauce.) Then the canning process, which actually goes into jars, and then I should have a picture of the final product. Hopefully, I’ll find and post those later.
