Canning Irish!

The kitchen smells delicious today!  We're getting ready for a big show in Cincinnati this spring: the Cincinnati Fine Food Show on April 17 and 18.  Praline Syrup and  Strawberry Lemonade are already bubbling on the stove.  But we've got a newcomer that certainly tastes pretty good even before I cook it - 

Logan's Irish Whiskey Marmalade!

My mother, Susan Logan, has always cherished her Irish roots.  As a child, I remember wearing orange on St. Patty's Day to celebrate our Protestant roots - boy, was I black and blue from being pinched all day at school!

Mom always wanted a grandchild named after her.  Susan or Logan would do!  But it never happened.  Then, as I've created new jams and named them, she STILL never received a namesake!  I named Grandma Staffan's Pear Honey after my mother-in-law (she DID hand down this recipe), and Betty's Piccalilli is named after my paternal grandmother (not only is this her recipe, but she is responsible for teaching me how to can!) 

Finally, dear Mother, on the 22nd day of February, 2010, you get SOMETHING named after YOU!  An enjoyable way to put Irish whiskey on your toast!  The Logan's will be proud, and I'll make sure to ship some of your marmalade to Uncle Scott, Aunt Sheila, and Aunt Marcy!  Erin Go Bragh!

MMMM, Lets see how this is going to go down....
I am buying some Logan's Irish Whiskey Marmalade....
You gleefully state ---- Yes, I named it after my Mother proadly... I gleefully say mmmm sounds like mom like a nip and had to hide it in her marmalade. LOL
Only kidding..... I m sure you mom is very proad no matter what you do.
My cousin named a cow after my mother, she took it as an insult cuz she weigh 300 pounds... hhhahahaha

Very good, Gayle! But Mother is partial to Blackberry Wine, I'm afraid. It was Grandma and Grandpa who nipped the whiskey!

LOL - on our facebook page, our local priest noted that Jameson's (which is what I use for marmalade) is the Irish Catholic beverage of choice, whilst Busmill's is the Protestant's favorite. Learn something every day! By the way, I'm Catholic, but was raised Presbyterian, so I think I can drink both!!
