Bye, Bye

Today I managed to package a lot of unused cooking/canning equipment for donation to someone who can use it.  The “fluffiest” part of it was the equipment my mother used for processing fruit into jellies when we had grape vines and a number of fruit trees.  Yes, I can still make jelly—some skills are never forgotten—but I don’t have a semi-orchard to harvest anymore.  I’ve known for a long time that I needed to get rid of those, but sentimentality was stopping me.  Now perhaps they will be purchased at the Thrift Store by someone who will use them.

I still own an "ice tea" pan that my mom used --- it's an aluminum stockpot that she used to make ice in -- 10 teabags, fill the pot up 2/3, add a cup of sugar and a small can of lemonade. (We had 7 around our table every night, and this was the summer drink of choice.) The only time I've used the pan is as a receptacle to hold blueberries/strawberries, green beans --- whatever I was picking!
