Address in Stronghold is 21 Evarts St NE

Canned the 6 qt bowl of damsons into 6 pints of jam last night…”

    My grandmother would make damson jam & give it to us when we had the hiccups. A spoonful fixed everything. She called it hiccup jelly & I never knew what the fruit was until someone gave me a jar & I ate some with toast. It was all wrong. I can only eat it when I’ve got the hiccups.

    Good memories. Thanks for sharing!!

    You know why they call them Damson plums? After the first bite, you’ll exclaim, “Damn, son!”

    Thanks for posting the address in Stronghold (link to microshowcase) – I’m amazed at all the fruit trees (and vegetables) you have growing in a small spot. Wow!!
