The family of Rhonda Beck gathered together on September 24-25 for a few days to peel, slow cook and fill quart jars with their homemade Apple Butter.

A family tradition they enjoy annually each Fall. Beck also prepares her “special” Apple Butter cake, which the family agrees is “yummy good stuff”.

Apple butter cooking.

This culminates a week of gathering various varieties of apples from her trees and friends’ trees. This is a labor of love, as it is hard intensive work but the fellowship of family and friends make it all worth while.

The Beck family processed and packed 79 quarts of that wonderful Apple Butter over the weekend.
