Amish Apple Butter

  • 2 1/2 cups brown sugar

  2. Process jars in water canner (boiling for 10 minutes)
  3. Enjoy!!! Good for one year on your pantry shelf

My daughters friend Reagan & her parents came for a visit this week all the way from Northern Cali. It was a short but sweet visit since they were making their way up to Michigan to see their other daughter in college. We were blessed even for the short time the girls had. They have missed being together since our move to Indiana in July.
Of course we had to take a few snapshots of their moment together. Hoping that they will see each other this coming Summer while my girl may fly out to go to Hume Lake with her bestie Bella! 

I love this family photo of them with my girl who is barefooted...
Made me smile!!!
