Why do you call it "Autumn's Copper Pot?"

Using a copper pot is recommended for creating the best jams and jellies.  Their properties and shape allow for the best heat distribution while cooking your mixtures so water will evaporate better.  Many recipes take this into account, and therefore the amount of water you add or don't add, the length of cooking time, etc, are somewhat dependent on using a copper pot.  Also, my name is Autumn.

Who is Grandma Irma?

Grandma Irma is my mom.  She and My Little Daddy have been married for 45 years and they have ten grown children and 11 grandchildren.  The grandchildren (the little ones) call her Grandma Irma.  She knows everything there is to know about cooking, baking, and canning.  She stands less than 5 feet tall, but don't let that fool you -she's tough!

What is the purpose of your blog?

I simply love canning and making jam and jelly.  I love trying new foods and creating.  It gives me a creative outlet and gives me something to share with the world.  I am a big fan of knowing exactly what's in my meal - because I made it from scratch.  Canning also takes me back to my childhood - spending time with Grandma Irma and my sisters helping out with picking fruits and vegetables, visiting roadside stands and local farms, assisting with preparing the produce, and the canning process itself. 

You mention 'CSA Box' quite a bit.  What is it?

I talked about CSA boxes in an early post, so now I just refer to it in passing,.  I apologize if this causes confusion.  'CSA' stands for Community Supported Agriculture.  Many farms deliver fresh produce directly to your door, the bounty is usually called a  CSA box.  There are many different types to suit your needs; I was lucky enough to find one that sells different sized boxes to accommodate single people and different tastes.  You can simply google "CSA box" and the name of your town and see if there is a farm near you that delivers.
