Time to stir....

and that's exactly what they did -

Saturday it was time for the JHS Baseball players to help out at Shepherdstown Fire Department's  Apple butter Festival.

The kettles were fired up -

The jars were ready -

The sugar was stacked up -

Even Ronnie was responsible for a kettle!
I had no idea how the whole process works but the kettles get tasted -

then if needed, sugar gets added til just right.

Then the time is written on the kettle so they know when it is done.  Wow....I found it all quite interesting.

This is one of their biggest (if not the biggest) fundraiser so if you like Apple butter, they have some for sale. $7 a quart and it IS yummy!

And after a hard day at work, what's better than some homemade vegetable soup?!
