Gettin' All Domestic
So coming off of our winning Pork and Sauerkraut success, Konrad and I decided to keep the Pennsylvania Dutch train rolling by trying our hand at Apple Butter. I remember making it as a child at my Great-Grandparents' house with all of my Lancaster cousins and my Aunts and Uncles from Williamsport. We would snitz the apples in my garage and then cook them down all day in a massive cast-iron kettle in my Great-Grandparents' driveway. I was a little kid at the time and can barely remember any of the process so when we alighted upon the idea we decided to look up the recipe on the internet. We found a fairly simple recipe that didn't require us to start a bonfire in the garden so we waited for our day off and cooked away the entire afternoon while the rains coming down in sheets outside. In the end the texture was a bit off but the taste was nearly right on.
