I am saddened by this news as I remember when Lily was born and everyone in Portland got the opportunity to vote on a name for her. I voted for the name Lily and was so happy it was chosen for her. It fit her perfectly. She was so sweet, lively, joyful and happy. She would have been 6 years old today 😪
When I was young we had 5 Red Current bushes in our backyard which were the pride and joy of my mom who loved Red Current Jelly but their existence was a bane to my brother and I as we were the daily fruit pickers!
It was our after school chore and one we immensely disliked! But….we did enjoy eating the yummy jelly on our toast that mom made from the berries.
I found this recipe online that is very similar to my mom’s, not sure that I am ready to make any of this jelly, but perhaps you readers might.
