Grandma Matteson’s Perfect Pickle Relish

 

Grandma Matteson lived with us six months out of every year from the time I was four until she passed on twenty years later. Most of the cooking was done by her and she was the best. But then, isn’t everyone’s grandma the best? Her canned goods were stored on a shelf in the basement and we enjoyed her Pickle Relish all year long. Hope you do too!

The future is right ahead of me. At the age of 84, all new projects are interesting.Memories and friends of the past are with me every day. I love to share my thoughts along with comments and opinions (of course) of this day and today's times and challenges. Photography is my hobby. Although I haven't done many photos of people, I've found there are photo challenges in every direction. Born and raised in Michigan, the peaceful woods and wildlife have always attracted me. Graduating from high school in 1953, college was of no interest to me. My Dad used to say, "some folks get a college education and may still not have enough sense to come in out of the rain." That's always been enough for me because I do, have that much sense, about the rain. I have learned one important fact about life. Old isn't as old as I always thought it was.
