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.
