Here is a prickly pear with the skin being cut off. Pretty color, right? Mom is hoping the jam will be this pretty.
At our house, we have tons of recipe books. One canning book had a funny recipe in the back cover, "How to Preserve a Husband."
Mom is putting this old Ball Blue Book in our RHQ Etsy shop Vintage section. Maybe it will go to your home?
