Thank you to IrishKate for the gift of here UA for the "Brandywine and Yellow Jacket" image.
Note---- there will be plenty of apples for apple butter--tho NOT from this tree. These will soon fall off and the wasps will die in the first heavy frost.
Apple butter is a thick spicy jam---good on toast, biscuits, pancakes, ice cream--- I will try to get a picture of it while it simmers over the fire! ( My neighbor holds cooking re-enactments--I am always invited to come with camera--- but i refuse to do dishes in a wooden tub! might damage the camera--- LOL!
