Alberta Grown Apple Butter

We live in the most northern, large city in North America.   I am a transplant from the warm part of the west coast so  I didn’t expect Herman to be able to grow apples here.  He was determined he could and he succeeded.   This apple butter very  special to me, as far as I am concerned it’s miracle apple butter.     After growing the apples Herman made this butter for us.  This…
