      I grew up with the Mountain Boomer apple variety in Southwest Virginia. From my great grandmother down to myself, we have made the most delicious apple butter from these apples. The flavor is superb and they are perfect for cooking. They make excellent apple butter, apple sauce, and cooked apples. I highly recommend them!
