katec@herald-mail.com "The Apple Butter Festival was really the core to tourism," says Jeanne Mozier, the "voice" of the 29-year-old Berkeley Springs, W.Va., event. That voice, which almost always is accompanied by Mozier's hearty laugh, will be audible this weekend from the bandstand in Berkeley Springs State Park in the center of town. She keeps things moving at the Saturday and Sunday festival - a variety of things, including musical performances, beard-and-mustache and hog-calling contests, a turtle race and egg toss.

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - The Apple Butter Festival, on Saturday and Sunday in Berkeley Springs, has been cooking up apple butter since 1974. That's a lot of apple butter if you do some apple-butter math. If one festival-goer has taken home a 5-pint jar in each of the 33 years since the festival started, he could have consumed the equivalent of 220 soda cans full of apple butter. And there's more to come - thousands of quarts more - at this year's Apple Butter Festival, said Beth Peters Curtin, director of the Berkeley Springs-Morgan County Chamber of Commerce, which sponsors the event.

martinsburg@herald-mail.com Peering into a large kettle being stirred by David Rankin, people tried to guess its contents. Chili? Spaghetti sauce? Beans? With a shake of his head, Rankin could only wonder what the people were thinking. Perhaps they didn't realize they'd parked what seemed like a mile away and battled scores of people in downtown Berkeley Springs to attend the 30th Annual Apple Butter Festival. That reddish-brown, thick concoction in the kettle was about 25 gallons of apple butter.

Apple butter gives this dessert a double hit of apple flavor while adding sweetness and spice as well. Look for it with the jams and jellies at your market. For convenience you can make this crisp a day ahead, then reheat it while eating dinner. It's even more scrumptious when topped with whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt. Start to finish: 1 hour 20 minutes (20 minutes active) Servings: 8 1 cup all-purpose flour 1/3 cup light brown sugar 3 tablespoons canola oil 6 large apples, such as McIntosh, peeled, quartered and thinly sliced 2/3 cup apple butter 1/2 cup dried cranberries Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- There probably was enough cholesterol being grilled at Saturday's Big Bad Burger Contest to clog New York's Holland Tunnel. But the dozens of burgers concocted in the parking lot of Sunfire Hearth Patio and Spa on East Stephen Street were a hit with those tasting them. The event is the brainchild of Selina Meehleib, owner of Mountain State Meats at 1948 Shepherdstown Road, and Jason Roach, Sunfire's general manager. The two met at a home show this spring and came up with the idea of establishing an annual charity fundraiser.
