Day 79 - Lemon Raspberry Marmalade, Anyone?

Since 1938
I delivered the display boards I finished yesterday to the Frederick Visitor Center for tonight's reception, then took off across the road to follow East South Street.  This old industrial section of town is near the railroad tracks, and along my walk I passed a Southern States, a tire company, some old warehouses, a concrete plant, and some smaller businesses.

It was a cloudy afternoon, and the overhead poles and wires and grain silos caught my eye, sihouetted black against a gray sky.

Near the end of South Street, I found a ballpark and along Franklin Street, an old stone church, St. Timothy's Episcopal. It must be from the late 1800's, although I could not find a cornerstone, because across the street is a small brick building with a 1900 cornerstone that reads, "St. Timothy's Church School."

On my way back to the car, I took a little detour onto Wisner Street and visited the McCutcheon's Factory Outlet, which smelled of apple cider inside.  If you have been to "country stores" and gift shops in the Mid-Atlantic region, you have probably seen jars of McCutcheon's famous apple butter, pumpkin butter, and jams and jellies.

Frederick is the home of the original McCutcheon's Apple Products.  They were doing a swift business in there, as people were scarfing up corn relishes, apple butter, marinades, fresh apples, and jugs of apple cider, in preparation for Thanksgiving.  I bought some lemon raspberry marmalade, which I put onto buttered toast for my afternoon snack.  Yum!
