Mayhaw Jelly

Postby Merlin » Fri May 11, 2007 8:28 am

Nina and I finally made a couple dozen pints of Mayhaw Jelly yesterday. Sure will go good this winter with some good hot biscuits.

No, its not a crabapple. We have lots of crabapples also but we don't make jelly out of them very often, even though when I was a kid we used to. Mayhaws look just like a miniature apple about 3/8" to 1/2" in diameter.

Rudi,

You need to come on down to GA so I can put you in touch with some pear preserves, blueberry jelly, blackberry jelly, some of the best apple jelly that will ever touch your tongue. We also make scuppernong jelly along with whatever else has a good crop that year. And you better believe, with those hot, buttered, home made biscuits, a fellow can just hurt himself. Don't ask how I know!!!!!!!!

Kodiak, If I get to make it to Stonethrow this year, I can bring the pear preserves and some apple jelly as well. I've been told that I make a pretty mean pan of Cathead biscuits. Don't know what kind of facilities for cooking you will have there, as I've never been to a Cubfest before, but cooking will be no problem!! I am an old Army cook, 6 years worth to be exact. Also my wife loves my version of sour dough pancakes.

Well gotta hush now, I've just had a hunger pain!!
