Sun streaming in, warming and brightening a corner where pizza dough rises every Friday late afternoon, as always, but with a new kitchen cloth and mug from my dear kitchen-loving friend in Hamburg *thank you Petra* Yesterday, apple butter . . .
Keeping the counters clean, dishes washed (as my hands) if in the very least to boost morale, and feeling a little more relaxed today. Reporting in this part of the world while sheltering in and waiting for the next rain storm ~ life is good.

So, if you’re considering making some yummy apple butter with things you already have in your pantry, to serve along with some fresh baked bread because you don’t want to bother going to the stores, try this . . .
Jen’s Apple Butter:
1 large jar of applesauce, 1 bag of dried apples, and sugar & spices to taste (I used raw turbinado sugar, a little cinnamon & allspice) . Just enough water to cover dried apples, and cooked over a few hours until the dried apples break down into little tasty clumps.
Make small batch and preserve in sterilized half-cup jars.
