Do you remember the sensation of biting into a candy apple or taffy apple at the fair? It is really sweet at the beginning and then you get the tartness of the apple. This jelly gives you the same experience. It is made with crab apple juice (and sugar) and then finished with Butter Ripple Schnapps. It is a lovely roller coaster ride all by itself.
Breakfast items, bakery items like thumbprint cookies, and glazing the top crust of pies when they come out of the oven. It is fun to serve melted over ice cream and can be used as a condiment beside roast chicken or pork. Have fun finding new uses.

We use our profits to make fruit snacks for food programs in the city that support those who are in need. Over the last 2 years with the manpower of wonderful volunteers we have made and donated about 27,000 individual snacks. These are apple chips, fruit leather, and apple sauce tubes.
We also provide work experience and volunteer opportunities for those who want the opportunity to contribute to others. This is usually with the apple snack program. Some tasks are perfect for those who have a variety of limitations.
When it comes to picking we will priorize those who are no longer able to care for their fruit trees.
We use local fruit that grows in people's yards instead of letting it go to waste. We also work with other groups in the city who want local fruit for their charity or food programs. By speaking to homeowners we are able to educate them about the apple maggot infestation and proper disposal of their yard waste. By teaching preserving classes we help homeowners find ways of using their own fruits.
We compost and recycle whenever possible.
