This week there will be no Pick Your Own, Pumpkins, or Hayrides, but we still have plenty of delicious apples available in store.

EverCrisp -- HUGE hit during its debut last weekend!  Limited quantities still available, and due to this we will be limiting to 1 half peck per family.  Come get this new, delicious, crisp apple.

We also have plenty of cider!  Remember, cider can be frozen and saved for later and is a great beverage for any holiday get-together.  Additionally, stock up on our pure maple syrup and local honey to get you through the Winter, Spring and Summer...and we look forward to seeing you next fall!

Below is a new recipe as well as some of our favorite recipes to make with Apple Cider...both delicious drinks and foods that are perfect for any gathering of friends!  Also, did you know you can find all of our newsletters and recipes on our website

Apple Butter

Source:  Vicki Ursprung of Shorewest Realtors has been making this recipe for years and dropping samples off for the staff of Rim's Edge is delicious and we thank her very much for her sharing!

5 1/2 pounds apples - peeled, cored and finely chopped
4 cups white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of ground cloves 
1/4 teaspoon of salt

  1. Place the apples in a slow cooker. In a medium bowl, mix the sugar, cinnamon, cloves and salt.  Pour the mixture over the apples in the slow cooker and mix well.
  2. Cover and cook on high 1 hour
  3. Reduce heat to low and cook 9 to 11 hours, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is thickened and dark brown.  Uncover and continue cooking on low for 1 hour.  Stir with a whisk, if desired, to increase smoothness.
  4. Spoon mixture into sterile containers, cover and refrigerate or freeze.
