Postings and ponderings of a quilting and knitting addict!

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!



  1. I've never heard of mayhaw jelly, but I know what you mean about boiling over as I've done that a few times. I love to make jelly and have the satisfaction of enjoying summer in in middle of winter.

  2. Okay now I have to get some may haw


Thank you for visiting! I love comments... so thanks for taking the time to leave one.
