Sometimes it pays to get sucked into a project. (See previous post if you have no clue what I am talking about.)
I now have 24 jars of yummy mayhaw jelly to show for today’s labor. I really believe mayhaw is the absolutely best jelly there is, and second is muscadine, or scuppernong, as they are called in other places.
On another note, I STRONGLY recommend when you are cooking mayhaws you do NOT go to the other end of the house to get something, get distracted and work on a blog post, run back to the kitchen and discover that the mayhaws are boiling over and making a huge mess on your stove. It was no fun. UGGHH! YUCK!!! Gee, what was I thinking? (Or perhaps NOT thinking?)
Now I need to strongly resist the urge to make some homemade biscuits to go with this. Perhaps tomorrow biscuits will make the menu at my house.
Mayhaw jelly…. IT’S A GOOD THING!
