FALL APPLE BUTTER STIR
Join the OJHS sponsored, COMMUNITY WIDE EVENT!
It’s the FALL APPLE BUTTER STIR!
We NEED VOLUNTEERS to HELP: Peel, Stir and Can!
Are you someone who LOVES to show off your skill with a paring knife or apple peeler? Do you like good conversation? Enjoy lots of laughs, and the smell of the fresh outdoors from the inside of a warm and cozy barn? Do you like to eat yummy snacks while working?
If you can answer “YES” to ANY of the above… the APPLE BUTTER STIR COMMITTEE could use your help!
SATURDAY, October 5th, from 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM we will be peeling 9 bushels of apples. Many hands make light work and we have the system down pat so it goes pretty fast.
SUNDAY, October 6th, the stirring begins at 8:00 AM, so if you are available for a short time, come out and give it a whirl!
We use wooden paddles over an open flame. We take turns stirring the pot (no pun intended), until approximately 3:00 PM, when the apple butter will be READY for canning!
Approximately 250 jars of Apple Butter will be canned that day.
*All volunteers receive a free pint sized jar to take home and enjoy!
The Apple Butter Stir takes place at MAUMEE BAY BED and BREAKFAST, 9855 Jerusalem Road (State Route 2) Curtice, Ohio.
Apple Butter is SOLD in the gift shop at Brandville Museum; at Bench Farms on St. Rt 2; and at Spragues Farm Market.
All proceeds from the sale of OJHS Apple Butter goes towards scholarships at the high school level. In 2023, we presented a $500 scholarship to a deserving high school student who was also a volunteer for our Children’s History Camp!
If you can DONATE an hour or two of your time for this important OJHS working weekend, please call us at:
Lot’s of FUN for Friends and Family will be had! Take a ride on one of the Antique Tractors!
