Do you want to get into the mood of autumn? Consider making a batch of apple butter for your family and friends. To keep your counter clean, cook in a large pot or cover with a splatter screen. Blending heated liquids should also be done with care. While the blender is running, use a kitchen towel to hold the lid down.
Butter made from apples
3 pound apples, peeled, cored, and cubed
12 gallon apple cider
12 c. honey
a quarter-cup of lemon juice
a pinch of cinnamon
12 teaspoon extract de vanille
14 teaspoon allspice powder
In a large saucepan, combine all of the ingredients. Bring to a boil, then lower to a low heat and cover and cook for 20 minutes, or until apples are soft. Allow it cool somewhat before blending or pureeing until extremely smooth. Return to the saucepan and simmer, stirring regularly, for another 40 minutes or until the mixture is extremely thick. To prevent burning, stir nearly continuously throughout the final 5 minutes of cooking. Fill tiny, clean jelly jars halfway with the mixture and fasten the lids. Allow to cool before refrigerating. Serve the jams and jellies the same way you would jams and jellies.
This autumn, offer a delicious Sangria to your visitors.
Sangria with Honey and Apples
In a big pitcher, pour 1 (750-ml) bottle white wine. 14 cup honey, whisked in 1 cup apple cider or sparkling cider and 1/3 cup brandy, whisked together In a pitcher, combine 1 small thinly sliced apple, 1 thinly sliced lemon, and 1 thinly sliced lime. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until very cold. Serve with ice cubes.
Remember to go through your closets and discard any old coats, jackets, sweaters, or sweatshirts. For coats for kids and adults, any of our north county cleaners can clean them for free. Our group will collect them in December and deliver them to low-income households.
On September 11th, remember Patriot Day. I’m sure I’ll never forget it. It feels like it was just yesterday, rather than 20 years ago. America, may God bless you.
