Spiced Apple Butter Pork Roast is an appealing low-fat dish for early fall dining. Apple butter adds to the pork's rich savor, but a serving will deliver only about 4 grams of fat.If you have already harvested your own apples and made preserves, you can use homemade apple butter instead of the store-bought kind. Apple brandy or juice and cider vinegar reinforce the fruity theme of the marinade that gives the meat its good flavor.Spiced Apple Butter Pork RoastServes 8one 2-pound boneless center-cut lean pork loin roast, or boneless lean pork sirloin roastone 1-pound, 13-ounce jar apple butter (about 2, cups)

Bob Wiles never liked apple butter as a kid. But in high school, he took an apple-butter sandwich for lunch every day. There were eight children in the family; apple butter made an inexpensive but filling midday meal for a growing boy.Unfortunately, daily doses of apple butter did nothing to improve Wiles' opinion of the farm-kitchen staple, and he swore he would never eat it again.But Wiles' love-hate relationship with apple butter didn't end there. His heart -- and taste buds -- have softened over the years, and all that apple-butter expertise, including many a fall day spent making it at home on the family farm, have worked to benefit Wiles' fellow members at the Piney Creek Church of the Brethren outside Taneytown in northwestern Carroll County.

Mary Earl of Baltimore was looking for a recipe for apple butter that is made in the oven. Betty Smith of Bend, Ore., sent in her recipe for the butter that she adapted over the years. Her recipe is very simple and allows for personal variation. Almost any type of apples will work, and she also says you can use any type of sweetener as well - just aim for a cup's worth. Her recipe is not meant to be preserved. This butter is ideal for this time of year, when apples are so varied and plentiful.

James Mentzer of McHenry, Ill., was searching for a reasonable recipe for making apple butter. Maxine Anderson of Kingston, Wash., sent in her recipe that is made in a slow cooker. Fall seems like the ideal time to cook a batch of this delicious condiment while the apples are so plentiful in the markets and farm stands. Anderson's recipe did not specify any particular type of apple, so I tested it using a combination of Red Delicious and Granny Smith apples. Naturally, the type of apples you choose will affect the overall sweetness of the finished butter.

One of the most prominent smells of autumn is of apples -- apple pies baking, applesauce simmering, apple butter spread on homemade bread.In 1966, at the Carroll County Farm Museum's first Fall Harvest Days, Mae and Elwood Caulford set up a copper kettle behind the farmhouse and made fresh-from-scratch apple butter. With the help of their son Jim, they put the fall delicacy in jars and sold it to the 7,000 visitors who attended this first affair.Jim and his wife, Ann, are carrying on the tradition 27 years later.

Almost always, autumn is a chill warmly received.It is the season of assessment, the beginning of the end. Not much more will grow this year, nothing more you can do. It is a somber season, when reality takes the place of spring's high expectations. But it is a freeing time, too, a moment when nature needs no help from central air conditioning or electric heat, a space between summer's overexposure and winter's bundling up.So it was yesterday, when dozens of families turned out to stuff straw into scarecrows, sample gingerbread and ride wagons at local festivals.

ABOUT THE TIME the leaves turn to brilliant shades of gold and orange, Dr. John Kable of Westminster makes a detailed shopping list: 80 pounds of sugar, 10 bushels of apples (Staymans, Romas and Yorks), cinnamon oil, clove oil, jars and more. Kable, a veterinarian at Airpark Animal Hospital, and his wife, Robin, also are mailing invitations to neighbors and friends. Bring the peelers and your contribution to the potluck dinner, the invitation announces. It's apple butter time. For the fourth year in a row, the Kable family opened their back yard, and folks gathered for a taste of Americana.
