Happy Mother's Day

My daughter and I celebrated Mother's Day yesterday at Madison Creek Farm near Nashville.
I discovered them a couple years ago and buy fresh produce there spring through fall.  Yesterday morning Peggy (owner) had a jam workshop and demonstrated making strawberry jam with hand picked strawberries, fresh from the field !  We had a jam tasting with the fresh jam and two other flavor jams she made on fresh biscuits (yum).  Peggy makes a "carrot cake jam" that's really tasty, says she likes it on fried pork chops ... jam and pork chops oh my !!
 (Peggy with CSA family)
Oh the smell of her kitchen as those berries cooked !!  We all left with a jar of jam; mine remained unopened for about 3 hours :)  I 'd like to keep it around just to smell.  Oh my the memories smell can evoke; It was a good mother - daughter day for many reasons, hope you had a good day with your family !   Elaine
