I came home to find a corn cake from Wilson, my gardener and Gabby, his wife, and a jar of her homemade apple butter! Wow! Immediately my mind zoomed back to my childhood. My mom would make the most awesome apple butter in a big huge pot (she had 11 of us children to feed!) and it tasted so amazing, warm and homey, as she fed me from her big spoon. Was I the only one in the kitchen? How could that be?
