Randolph County family continues tradition of churning out apple butter

The Kuykendall family makes apple butter the old-fashioned way, over an open fire in a copper kettle.

Freshly prepared apples are poured in a giant copper kettle, and will eventually become apple butter.

It takes about two and a half bushels of apples to make 50 pints of apple butter. The cooking process can take up to five hours.
