worked with the U.S. Forest Service and
farmed part-time. My mother worked hard as a housewife. We had a 70-year-old farmhouse with several acres of land. Most of our meals were made from the produce of our land.
During autumn, we canned all the vegetables from summer, including jams and jellies and apple butter. Nothing smelled better or took longer to make than apple butter. It require a large black vat with a roaring fire and hours of stirring to blend all the spices.
All the hard work made the apple butter worthwhile. Several Saturdays a month my mother filled our home with the distinct aromas of nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice and apple butter. After several hours, my mother had whipped all the ingredients into several dozens of incredible apple butter cookies. After breakfast, she usually allowed us to have one or two of these warm delights.
We may not have had all the modern material riches of the world but we had something very special. We had our family, love and hard work, the land that we enjoyed and fed us, and of course, we had my mother's special apple butter cookies. Indeed, our family was very rich!
