A Fall Tea Party

Apples and Honey: A Honey of a Tea Party
By Renee Van Hoy

Nothing welcomes autumn like apples and honey. Delight your guests with the scent and flavor of apple butter, an herbal honey tasting, and all the breads, cakes, cookies and tarts you can make with these wonderful ingredients.

The Setting:

* bowl of beautiful fall apples on every table
* honey tasting, with apple slices for dipping
* game of "hide and seek" the honey bear for the little ones
* chance to enjoy the sweetness in life with good friends

Apple Butter and Tartlets

Apple butter is a real treat for the Fall. It takes a little time to make, but it is so worthwhile! Not only can you serve it for tea and breakfast, but you will have extra for gifts or for making Apple Butter Tartlets. This recipe takes about 2 hours from start to finish, which is much shorter than the cooking time called for in most apple butter recipes. I think you'll be very happy with the delicious result.
