Knowing my Great- Grandmother has been a pleasure and a daily learning throught my life. No I never met her or held her hand or heard her voice. But I know her ! Oh you say in pictures and stories. Yes those too. I know her even better..then that. When I was young my grand mother would set me on the stool next to her while she was busy in her kitchen. In Grandmas kitchen you could learn almost anything. The wooden kitchen table was used to make cookies,pies,can vegtables,grade eggs,dress out chickens,or wrap deer meat! As she laid newspaper down to keep things clean her voice was always telling me the habits and practices of the past. "I'll teach you the way I was taught by my Mother" she would coo. In the warmth of that house ,created by the heat from the wood stove I would have my beginnings of passing on family traditions.

How my Great-Granmother,Grandmother and Mother would be proud of their cooking skills still being taught to the 5th generation of women. The same wooden board and wooden pin laid out to make pies. Stirring the pot with a fiqure 8 so it never burns. Grinding with the cast iron grinder screwed to a table little hands have made apple sause and pickle relish with the same excitement as years gone by. Our famous icing (no recipe - made by taste) decorating cakes,jelly rolls and cupcakes still feeding hungry families. The making of cream gravy,pickled eggs and cracking hickory nuts is still being practiced .

The skills that they taught had far reaching lessons
then the lessons of cooking. They were webbed with pride,sharing,and thankfulness.

New techniques have certainly made the cooks job easier. But never forget those dependable basic's sent down through the past that kept us cooking with high standards.

"Ill teach you the way I was taught by my Mother." will be repeated to yet another generation.

I loved reading your story, Mom. I know the stories from you and my grandmother your mother. I am proud to be apart of this generation of cooks/bakers. I have found that without thought I know how to cook and bake. But really it is because of years of watching, asking you and listening to your stories. I hope to pass this onto my children the way you have shared and taught me.

What a wonderful, loving memory to treasure. I hope to pass on my cooking/baking skills to my granddaughter when she is old enough to do so (She is only six months old). I can't wait to share the special moments with her.

Isn't it a joy to learn from others and share our knowledge with others. I believe my maternal grandmother helped shape who I have become with the words of wisdom she gave me while we were sharing tasks in the kitchen,.

The mention of a grinder and canning brings back great memories of my Grandmother. Last night my husband and I ground peppers and onions for pepper relish.

Just this past week my husband and I made apple butter and apple sauce like I was taught by my grandmother. I was so impressed with the help of my husband that I decided to try making sweet lime pickles, as we were almost finidhes he rplied "this is fun" I just hope he continues to think it is fun at least until my daughter gets old enough to learn.

My little sister just got married and she is starting to call me to ask for recipes from when we were little kids, growing up in Michigan. My grandmother also, never uses an actual recipe or measures anything. We were remembering our days as little girls, they were precious. My sister said she has several recipes, but none of them turn out like she remembers when she bakes. I guess it is not the same when grandma isn't there.

I myself was taught by both my mother and my paternal grandmother (who herself was blind) taught me alot I know about baking and cooking from scratch. I am also passing on to my daughters what I have learned through out the years. Maybe I too can get them to want to teach their children. Like I heard from many instructutors though out my years that we are the first teachers of our children. They learn from us first.

Thank you for sharing such a wonderful memory! In this day and age where everything has to come from a box to taste "right" it is wonderful to see someone who teaches the "old" way! My paternal grandmother, who lived with us until her death, was my teacher for all things baked, rolled and fried. I know that my children have been taught Nani's way and hopefully they will pass it to their children too.
