Copper apple butter pot on a wrought iron stand. A copper kettle is essential for open fire apple butter making because it conducts heat so evenly and helps keep the apple butter from scorching.
Historically, apple butter was cooked over a very low fire, sometimes for days at a time, until the apples transformed into a deep brown and took on a thick consistency. This copper pot is a 1/12th scale miniature of a full size pot and is handcrafted.
