I am really enjoying my summer & taking time to remember summer days when I was a little girl.
Early 1960's, one of my favorite childhood summer memories is of the six of us jumping in Dad's old white pick-up truck on a summer evening after supper & driving down dusty East Texas country roads in Carthage - we called this going on a "bunny hunt" & of course we were looking for bunnies.
AND Muscadines! I remember the excitement of finding a muscadine vine, picking them, & popping them in my mouth. They are a very distinctly different type of grape & it's a taste that just brings back my childhood summers. Takes me right there again.
Mom & Dad just came back from a trip with Muscadines from my Aunt Joy & we spent the morning making Muscadine Jelly ~ oooooh is it ever delicious.
And just look how pretty it looks in the jars - just looks like summer time!
Thanks mom for another wonderful summer memory!
HAPPY SUMMER!! xoxo
