My mom made homemade jams, jellies, and marmalades till we ran out of storage space I
couldn't understand the appeal of all that work when you could walk right into Big Bear or

kitchen windows, apron tied around her waist, humming softly as she mixed, measured and
stirred. She was happy........now, I understand.
