Apple Delight

Y ou learn something new everyday. A couple of days ago my blog friend Jacque from Campagne Maison introduced me to Apple Jelly and Apple Butter. Believe it or not I had never heard of either one before.

This beautiful picture is from Jacque at Campagne Maison.

This morning Jacque was kind enough to share her recipes with all of us on her blog. Please drop by her beautiful farmhouse to say hello. She loves company. (Just click on the picture) Thank you Jacque for sharing your recipes. I can't wait to try them out.

Thank you for dropping by.

Have a wonderful day!

If you visit Tennessee you will soon find out about apple butter! It is delicious on fritters. In the Smoky Mountains we vist a plave called the Apple Barn (restaurant) and it has the most scrumptious apple butter ever. ;) So glad you ventured out and tried this. I bet it is sure looks purty. (ok.. just because I am fromt TN I said that..but I don't actually talk like that!!!!) LOL

Ana, I haven't had apple butter in a long time. My grandfather always used to have it on hand. Sweet memories!

Hi Ana...thank you so much for your sweet comments! The best Apple Butter is made with a mixture of apples. We have 7 trees on the property but I am sorry to say that I do not know what the varieties are--I made each batch from 2 different trees. I am not sure if they will taste different or not, to tell you the truth! But, I do have a shortcut suggestion IF you decide to try the recipe. Please email me at: I need to get your mailing address so I can send you your PAY IT FORWARD gift.

Thank you so much for writing about it in your blog!

Hi Ana, It's so funny. I was raised on apple butter and apple jelly, but I could never get my kids or grandkids to eat it! I'm glad you found it. I remember one time that my mom made it from scratch, and it oozed out the top all over the cabinet shelf! She never tried it again, but I'm sure the jar you have is much different...and lots better! I think I'm going to go buy a jar just for me! Sure brings back good memories of childhood days, and those are always nice to revisit!

Hi Ana,
My mother made the best apple butter when I was a girl. It would be good for me to try it myself at least once. Thank you for sharing this link. I will run over now and check it out.

Ana....In the fall we have the "Apple Butter Stirrin Festival" in Coshocton, Ohio. They make it over open fires in big kettles. It smells so wonderful on a crisp fall day! Glad you finally discovered it!

I think I may have tried apple jelly once.....
I was admiring all the little birds on your post...I love to decorate with birdies too. I have attempted to have a few "LIVE" finches but they did not last long :(
