Apple Butter - 19 ounces
Made in large copper kettles just like Grandma did in years gone by. Made from apples grown exclusively in the Whitacre Orchards. The Whitacre family orchards began in the early 1900s with George S. Whitacre planting the first 40 acres of apples in Western Frederick County, Virginia. Back then, a good harvest would yield three bushel barrels which would be hauled by horse-drawn wagon to a nearby train station. The apples would be loaded onto a train car, and shipped off to different markets, some as far away as England, where York Apples were in large demand. The Whitacre apples became well known because of their unique red coloring, which is due to the red soil in Frederick County.
