On today’s episode of Farmhouse Rules, with Nancy Fuller, the born and raised farm girl from Upstate New York is titled “Canning Party (Ladies Who Can).” Her recipes called rules are farm recipes handed down from generations. Now through the magic of television, she can share these tasty treats with viewers and teach them something too.
In this delicious episode, Nancy is visiting Fix Brothers Farm to get the apples for her canning party. One thing on the agenda will be, Spiced Apple Butter, with Warm Lemon and Sugar Biscuits for dipping. All of today’s featured recipes will be here. There will be hot Orange Tea with Honey and Hearty Butternut Squash Soup. Bob Fix showed Nancy how to properly pick the apples, as his wife and baby pulled up to greet Nancy.
Before the canning girls get there, Nancy is making the butternut squash soup, and shared a fact that the seeds can be roasted, just like pumpkin seeds and make a nutritional treat. Nancy put large chunks of onion and apple in the pot with the squash and garlic clove, because they will all be pureed together.
The women who will be in attendance are Mother, not her real mother, but her sister-in-law’s mother who Nancy bonded with immediately and calls her Mother, and she is an expert at canning. Sandra, the funniest girl Nancy knows will also be in attendance along with Terri and Jean, who has no clue in the kitchen.
After Nancy got eight pounds of apples cut up and in a large pot, she added apple cider vinegar to cut down on the sweetness for the apple butter. While the apples were reducing down, she prepared the biscuits. Nancy revealed how she came from a long line of excellent cooks.
As the girls helped make decorative jars for the apple butter, they helped her make the biscuits. Once they were done and everyone was enjoying the biscuits with apple butter, they made the tea with orange water and had a great lesson in canning the jars on this episode of Farmhouse Rules.
