Yes you read the title correctly. Almost totally naked standing in the middle of the backyard. There are fences but anyone can see over or through those fences. The neighbors can see me naked, family can see me naked, almost anyone passing through this area could see me naked. It is not that I wish to be naked. It is just that is the way I am right now until early spring of 2009. You see, I am talking aboput the apple tree in my back yard. I picked all the apples today and now my poor tree is so naked. Hahahaha! I hope I had you going for awhile with this. Anyhow can I get some links or recipes for apple cider and or apple butter possibly. Thanks. Ever make your own cider or apple butter?HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!

Naked?!?!?!?! Oh no, I missed that one didn't I? That's what I get for living so far away from you. Oh wait, I just read the rest of the discussion, just the apple trees. I hope you can get some good recipes, I don't have any for those things....sorry.

Very good, yes you did have me going for a minute. I really did think that you had been in the buff in your back yard! So all your apples are done ah? Wow that is pretty cool, I have never tried apple cider I do not think, I know that I have certainly never tried apple butter, although it does sound like it could be pretty nice! I have no links to give you, or recipes. Sorry.

I was wondering what had happened to you. Then of course common sense prevailed and I just wondered what was naked. I have not made apple butter, but it would taste great. I used to have a craft recipe for using up the apple waste, grinding it, cooking it, putting spices and oils and orris root in it. Then rolling it into little balls and putting them in fabric squares. Use them like pot pourri. My poor old copy was not great. I wonder if I can find something like it on the internet.

Funny, veryyyy funny, yep ya got me there for a minute, but being familiar with your discussions...I knew there had to be more to it. lol I have made my own apple butter, my grandmother's recipe. It takes all day and makes the whole house smell soooo good, and brings back memories of when I was young and the smell of her house. I would share it with ya, but ......... the secret's in the sauce!

oh, you had me going...lol. I was sitting here thinking..What in the world? I sure wished I knew how to make both, theres this lady I go to church with, and just this week I was at her house and she had apple cider made and apple butter, I did manage to get a jar of apple butter from her. I told her I would like to see how she makes it, we have an apple tree too, and they are just about ready to pick, the other day they were still a little sour.

I was wondering where you were going with this discussion. Here you go as requested: Apple Butter Ingredients: 15 or so medium sized tart apples (four or five pounds) - Macintosh are nice. 4 cups apple juice or cider 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon 3/4 teaspoon ground allspice 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves 2 cups sugar Wash, core and quarter apples. It is not necessary to peel the apples. Place the apples in a large kettle or Dutch oven along with the juice or cider. Bring to a boil then cover the mixture and simmer for about 30 minutes, making sure to stir occasionally to prevent sticking. Now press the mixture through a sieve or a food mill. Return about 10 cups back to the Dutch Oven. Stir in sugar, and spices (and everything nice). Bring to a boil and then reduce heat yet again. Leave uncovered and over very low heat cook for about one and a half hours until mixture is very thick. Be sure to stir periodically and frequently to prevent burning on the bottom. Here is the canning part: Spoon apple butter into hot, sterilized canning jars (pint or half-pint do nicely). Leave 1/4 inch head-space. Wipe rims and adjust lids. Place in a boiling-water canner for 5 to 10 minutes (5 minutes for half-pints, 10 minutes for full pints from the time the water begins to boil). Carefully take jars from canner and allow them to cool on racks. The result is about 4 pints. So double up on recipe for bigger batches! http://www.allsands.com/food/recipes/appleciderreci_tsm_gn.htm Here is a link to an article about how to make cider.

yes, you certainly got my attention ! plus it was posted under making a difference. yes, i've made my own apple butter. it's not hard at all. apples, molasses, nutmeg, cinnamon. cook it slow and long. now apple cider i have not, but only because i don't have an apple press or juicer. i do love the apple and pear ones the best though. you sitting here laughing at all of us, who ZOOMED in on your little picture...thinking we could see YOU behind said nakked tree !

LOL here i was gonna say I'd stripped and changed a few times in my back yard at the clothes line however...I'm in the country and the nearest neighbour is 2.5 miles away! My apple trees are naked too I froze some for apple crisp and my grandma took the rest a couple weeks ago when she was up - shes making them into pies and freezing them ( i hope i'm there for christmas this year!)
