20121222-092713.jpg I wrote a lengthy blog to go with these photos but it didn’t publish! Something was lost between iPhone publish, slow Internet upstairs and space, I guess. I also experimented with a new app called “vintique” which has old filters and text options. So I messed up the gingerbread photo but you get the idea.
Haystack recipe is from my late Nana ~ recipe found on this blog last Xmas.

Nana's recipe book

Mom's notes on canning Pickled beets (my fav food ever), on the pages of Nana's recipe book

A wonderful package came in the mail last week, from my Dad (love you Daddsy). It contained a beautiful hardcover copy of one of my late Nana’s recipe book. It came the week I was canning. My fav food in the world remains my mom’s homemade pickled beets. And I believe her recipe is a variation of the one in this book. Thanks dad… another thoughtful and timely package. I attempted the beets last year and they were okay, not quite mom’s. I’m going to enjoy this book, this winter.
