It's high time for apples. Apple cider, fresh, apple crisps, applesauce and apple butter. I've written plenty about apples, including my memories of the big red apple barn in Ojai we'd go to as a child.
But I read this post today and was mesmerized, and then Lisa referenced my slow cooker technique for making applesauce and apple butter. But oh, how she tells it so much better than I. Go read about Uncle Hal and his memories growing up making apple butter.
Stories involving scent, flavor, seasons, can transport us to our childhood and familial connections. This is a wonderful story.
Finally, I'm itching for a good apple crisp. Favorite recipe? Please tell.
