Food Preserves Quotes


"Alexandra often said that if her mother were cast upon a desert island, she would thank God for her deliverance, make a garden, and find something to preserve. Preserving was almost a mania with Mrs. Bergson. Stout as she was, she roamed the scrubby banks of Norway Creek looking for fox grapes and goose plums, like a wild creature in search of prey. She made a yellow jam of the insipid ground cherries that grew on the prairie, flavoring it with lemon peel; and she made a sticky dark conserve of garden tomatoes. She had experimented even with the rank buffalo-pea, and she could not see a fine bronze cluster of them without shaking her head and murmuring, ‘What a pity!’ When there was nothing to preserve, she began to pickle."

Willa Cather, ‘O Pioneers!’
 

 

“There is no good formal dinner without a dessert of p√Ętisserie and preserves. The idea of a dinner finishing with the cheese course would be, for me, so incongruous that it would never even cross my mind!”

Denis (Lahana Denis) (1909-1981)
