Perfect Apple Recipes

Last evening our favorite apple orchard haunt's main building burned and the family business was destroyed...Oakwood Fruit Farm, Sextonville, WI.  I have been taking my children to this orchard for many many years - apples were always awesome and the family feeling one received as a customer was out of this world.  We only hope they will rebuild.   These recipes are from their family; I only wish I could share the taste and smell of those apples with you.

Grandma Louis' Old Fashioned Apple Butter

  1. 10 pounds of apples. Cook with peelings using very little water. (use apple cider or juice instead of water) Run through sieve colander to separate peelings from apple sauce.
  2. Add 5 pounds of sugar
  3. 2 rounded soup spoons of cinnamon
  4. 1 level soup spoon of cloves
  5. Stir and cook until desired thickness, about 45 minutes in an oven at 350
  6. Put in jars and seal
Makes about 15 8-10 ounce jars
