Today I wanted to feature Maggie, one of our wonderful entrants this month (thanks Maggie!) Below please find her wonderful story as well as her “Grandma Vi’s” lovely recipe for Bread & Butter Pickles!

Enjoy!

My grandmother, Violet Hart, was a schoolteacher in MN. She used to share stories with me about her days spent teaching a one-room schoolhouse. After she married, she had to quit, because only single women could be school teachers. She had my mother on November 12th,1936 and thus began the start of her passion for cooking. She became known as one of the best cooks in Litchfield. From as far back as I can remember, she showed me all her cooking secrets. I would stand next to her (wearing one of her aprons),on a step stool to assist. She never “fixed” my crude looking pie crust, or scoffed at the accidental spillage of flour on the floor. My memories are only of the love she showed by just being patient and spending time with me.She was famous for her Bread and Butter Pickles, and would bring them to all the get togethers, along with a fresh baked loaf of potato bread. I went on to have my own daughter on November 12th, 1986 (a popular date it seems) and continue to pass along the traditions of my beloved “Grandma Vi”.
