Weekly Photo Challenge: Nostalgia

Nostalgia: homesickness, reminiscence, wistfulness, longing, melancholy…

I miss my grandmother. It’s easy to see it in my writings. I’ve always missed her. I copy her. I want to grow up to be like her.

That’s why I do what she did. In this modern world I do home canning.

pickles and figs

When I see these beauties, it satisfies my longing like few other things do. I may be crazy, but I’m happy.

Are you?

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment, Tilly! 🙂
      Oh, I know what you mean about the lost art. Yet it is so easy! While I was learning I thought it so difficult, but now days, I realize how quickly I can cook fresh things to the consumable state, multiple meals at a time, and how quickly I can open a jar. I guess the learning curve was the initial burden. Now days, having many of the recipes memorized, I just get busy and get done in no time.
      Since the pressure pots, lids, etc., are recently becoming easier to find, I wonder if home canning is coming back into vogue . . .

Comment! Because we want to know what you think!
