Tricked and treated......

Yesterday on Walton's Mountain...Ma Walton (AKA Poor pitiful me) spent the entire day making jars and jars and jars of this yummy beautiful stuff.......Apple Marmalade......


We spent the weekend with my In-laws in North Georgia and my husband decided we would take a scenic route to their house......It's all scenic, it's in the mountains....I'm not that stupid....He was going to buy MORE APPLES..........I had been tricked (I will be filing for divorce as soon as the weather changes and he starts wearing pants). These, he wanted me to peel just for apple pies....Apparently, I have no other existence in life nor work except to serve him.......I'm sure I'm to young for this (positive comments are welcome and needed).....Enough of the pity party......My wonderful 81 year old Mother in law gave me a recipe for her families apple marmalade....It's was her Great Great Grand Mothers and has been used ever since....I was deeply honored to get...It is something I will cherish forever.....If you could have been in my house with all the apples cooking and cinnamon......All I can say is, OH MY GOODNESS!!!..........


This morning the Princes of Pain called and wanted to know what it would taste like on some buttermilk biscuits, with a little gravy of course....We found out.....And had a wonderful breakfast together...It had been a very long time since I made biscuits and gravy for just the two of us..... And I believe my Mother in law would be proud of the way the apple marmalade turned out.....I sure am

The smell of apples and cinnamon is sheer heaven. I made applesauce last week......hubby Don was hovering over my shoulder the whole time.
Your jars of marmelade look divine!

The smell of cooking apples would remind me of my grandma, who made applesauce..so does my mom...the store stuff is so awful by comparison.

Sounds delicious but I wouldn't want to have to make it to be able to eat it. LOL! I'm not that domesticated!
