As with many families that like to cook, when something is especially good it's not uncommon to hear one of us say... "This is yucky. You won't like it, I'd better take it all with me..." Or, "My tummy hurts. I think this must be bad, I'd better get rid of it."
I knew my two-year old nephew had picked up on the family humor when we were all at our parents house watching my him helping my mother wash grapes. Ben was very carefully rinsing each grape one at a time under the faucet and then placing them in the strainer.
He and Grandma had picked them earlier that day off the vines that have run along the back fence the last 40 years. We had an especially wet summer this year, and all three grape vines had produced a good quantity of their white, red and concord grapes. Fortunately, a nice bucketful were out of the reach of Shadow, the family dog, who has a sweet tooth for grapes and who usually snaps them up before anyone had a chance to make jelly!
Ben was taking his job very seriously, carefully reviewing each grape for blemishes before rinsing them off. He has always enjoyed helping in the kitchen and is as good about cleaning up as he is about helping scoop, dump, stir, mix and sample.
As they prepared to mash up the grapes, my Mom remarked that they should get a few more jars to split the jelly up so that Aunt Trissy (as I am known) could take some home as well.
Without missing a beat Ben very seriously shook his head and told my mother "Oh no Grandma. Aunt Trissy doesn't like grape jelly," as he turned toward me with that little grin on his face, knowing there would be more for him!
Good to know the family tradition continues!
