Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
First time we had apple butter was at the Kapok Tree Inn in Clearwater Florida in the 70's. Beautiful large restaurant with great steaks. They would give you muffins and apple butter while you waited for your meal to be prepared. Loved the apple butter so much Mom tracked down the recipe and would make a batch every now and then.
