my mother, the cook

my father once said that my mother 'wasn't always a good cook'. i thought she was alright , but there were things that i was forced to eat as child that i never could stand....
  1. homemade canned peaches- and every august the exact moment to buy the case of peaches from the 'green grocer'
  2. rhubarb sauce - made every spring in a stock pot the size of a bathtub and canned or frozen
  3. strawberry jam - handpicked in june, smashed mixed with sugar and rapidly boiling 'suregel' pectin
  4. green beans - fresh from the garden, saute`d with bacon , still squeeky
the list could go on...... i love my mom.
