Crabapple Butter

Yum! My neighbor has a lovely crabapple bush which survived the tropical storm force winds that Hurricane Ike sent through our area on September 14th. So many trees came down in our part of the state that we were out of electric for nearly a week. Fortunately this crabapple bush wasn't damaged. However, it is so loaded with fruit that the limbs might break. The crabapples are ripe now, lovely shiny red and yellow. My neighbor asked if we wanted the fruit. Oh yes! Our crabapple is too young to bear much yet. Lovely flowers, but not so much fruit yet.

So it's time for crabapple butter!
