apple butter

(To the tune of the Peanut butter and jelly song, you know, the Barney one.)

Apple, apple butter (it’s yummy!). Apple, apple butter (it’s yummy!).

First you take the apples and you cut ‘em, you cut ‘em.

First you take the apples and you cut ‘em, you cut ‘em.

Apple, apple butter (it’s yummy!). Apple, apple butter (it’s yummy!).

Then you take the apples and you reduce cook them, you cook them.

Then you take the apples and you cook them, you cook them.

Apple, apple butter (it’s yummy!). Apple, apple butter (it’s yummy!).

Then you take the spices and you add ‘em, you add ‘em.

Then you take the spices and you add ‘em, you add ‘em.

Apple, apple butter (it’s yummy!). Apple, apple butter (it’s yummy!).

Then you take the reduction apples and you strain them, you strain them.

Then you take the apples and you strain them, you strain them.

Apple, apple butter (it’s yummy!). Apple, apple butter (it’s yummy!).

Then you take the butter and you store it, you store it.

Then you take the butter and you store it, you store it.

Apple, apple butter (it’s yummy!). Apple, apple butter (it’s yummy!). D.C. al fine

Apple, apple butter (it’s yummy!). Apple, apple butter (it’s yummy!). fine

(Composer’s note: best sung while moving and clapping the hands of a 3 ½ month old giggling baby, thus developing his gross motor skills. And his taste buds. (It’s yummy!))

    I am so, so glad you still remember songs from Barney. (Unless you looked them up for Baby’s sake?) Because I feel STOO-PID when I get Barney songs stuck in my head at age 22.

    mmm… mine is almost gone so I had to make another batch! When I made it at my house, I used my MIL’s food mill thing… while substantially easier, it was not as phenomenally smooth a texture as our hand pressing. I think I will stick to the hand press method.
