While living in Boise, ID I homeschooled our three sons. Looking for a fun project and knowing how much my sons enjoyed being in the kitchen I decided we should make some Apple Butter and Strawberry Jam. Luckily the farmers market had a great deal on both apples and strawberries.
My sons prepared the jars by washing them and making sure there were no chips or cracks in them. Next I had them look on the internet to find different recieps and we decided which ones we would use. The house smelled wonderful as we cooked the jam and Apple Butter. It seemed as if the Apple Butter just wasn't getting as thick as it should havee been. We went ahead and put the Strawberry Jam in jars and sealed them.
I dedided to let the Apple Butter cook down a little longer in hopes that it would thicken up a bit. After an hour the boys and I decided to go ahead and jar up the Apple Butter. Although it never jellied up the boys thought it was the best Apple Sauce they had ever tasted.
Now instead of making Apple Butter my sons and family like to tease me about the Apple Sauce that wasn't meant to be but how sweet it tasted. I also had an increadable day with my sons which I am blessed to repeat at least once a year.
