Additional Product Details
History of Apple Butter: Apple butter’s history is tied to European monasteries in the Middle Ages. The monasteries had large orchards that produced lots of fruit. Apple butter originated as a way to preserve apples. The Germans who emigrated to the US and became known as the Pennsylvania Dutch brought apple butter over with them. Making apple butter was a social event for the Pennsylvania Dutch Communities. They gathered the apples from orchards and would have parties where the apples were peeled, cored and sliced. The apples would be cooked slowly in large copper kettles.
Old Sturbridge Village is one of the country’s oldest and largest living history museums, celebrating life in early New England from 1790–1840. Visitors interact with costumed historians, experience up-close demonstrations of early American trades, and meet heritage-breed farm animals. Situated on 200 scenic acres, the Village is a collection of more than 40 historic buildings including homes, meetinghouses, trade shops, working farms and three water-powered mills, restaurants, and retail shops.
