For more than 20 years now, if you happen to drive past the Hardy United Methodist Church in Hardy around this time of year, you may notice what has become a familiar and welcoming scent.
Known as the Apple Butter Gang, members of the congregation, gather to create hundreds of jars of apple butter.
“We’re making homemade apple butter to raise money to support the mission and community work that the Hardy United Methodist Church does,” Marilyn Lynn said.
A volunteer in the project since 1998, Lynn is now an expert in the creation of the flavorful treat which resides inside quart and pint jars.
