For my foray into Black Walnut Festival sales, I’ve finally ventured out of paper labels I tape on jars (I know, I know!) to actual labels that, you know, stick on the jars. I never do like stickers on canning jars, since the jars are reusable and stickers can be so difficult to remove–but these aren’t. They do peel off fairly easily, which makes me feel better about using them!
There have been lots of questions about the recipe–it is based on my rum-raisin apple butter recipe, with a few changes. I’ll post about it tomorrow, I promise. Today, I’m simmering the last batch of apple butter to can and beginning to process the pears in my magical Squeezo. I’ll be making Pecan Pear Butter, also to sell at the festival. (Will post that recipe also–after I finish making it up!) Will you be at the festival? Come see my butters! I’ll be with my cousin, who will be selling his fresh-ground (right at the festival!) cornmeal.
