Many members of Holy Cross spent Thursday and Friday making apple butter the old fashioned way by peeling and slicing many bushels of apples then cooking in coppper kettles fired with wood. Today those who ordered these most sought after fruit spread got to pick them up.
The finished jars and these are only part of the batch which was made.
This is a decades old tradition at Holy Cross. Here are a couple of photos from what I'd guess is the 1950's. Some of the grandchildren/great grandchildren of those pictured here were working on this year's applebutter.
See the Catsup bottle in the background of the photo above?
