Tupelo Honey and Mayhaw Jelly

 
Posted by Picasa


I'm not a big fan of honey, but I might have to go back and buy some of that jelly just to see what it tastes like!

I love freshly harvested honey and not processed.. I take a spoonful of it everyday. I don't know anything about Tupelo and Mayhaw though.

Thank you for your concern Lois. I left Manila 3 days before the typhoon, would probably have been trapped inside a mall and the car drowned in the basement parking if I'd been there. I'm ok, but I can't say the same for my sister and brother who are now busy doing a cleaning up of their flooded houses.

Haws are small native fruit similar to a plum or crab apple. The trees grow in swampy areas. My mother told of gathering the fruit by shaking the branches then skimming the fruit from the water beneath the trees. The jelly is rose-colored and has a subtle flavor sort of like a mild guava jelly. I used to think haws only grew in south Georgia and north Florida, but recently I saw a jar of may haw jelly in a big grocery store in the midwest, and according to the label it was made from haws in east Texas. I was disappointed to see may haw jelly going national - our culture is too homogenized.

Hey! Those are Mississippi specialties!

I've never had mayhaw jelly, but a lot of people around here say it's good. I think it's sort of tart tasting.

I posted some awhile back, you can take a look here:

I think I'd give both a try. Tupelo's from oranges? Heehaw's from a TV show? Oh, wait, that's Mayhaw! From Mayberry?

Methinks all your CDP fans will suggest you try them and then tell us what they tasted like...

Darla said...

Yes mam, four snakes from Sunday to Sunday. The are looking for somewhere to spend the winter, I hope. Scared the dickens out of me I'll tell you that. I don't garden much this time of the year because of snakes!! Do tell you daughter, you know there's that creek in the neighborhood and a lot of swamp areas..

I'm not a big fan of honey either, but I sure like the song 'Tupelo Honey' by Van Morrison!

Tupelo and Mayhaw were new words to me so I had to google to find out what they mean... and as I have absolutely no idea about the taste of both honey and jelly I would buy them too! :-)

The bees work so hard to make the honey and many of them never live long enough to taste it or the bee keepers takes the combs out before everyone gets to taste it. I love honey.

I agree with a couple of the others Lois. Give 'em both a try, then you can report back to us. I'm curious about that jelly too.

Lisa Wilson said...

I'm not sure I've ever seen a mayhaw. It might be good!

Tabib said...

With names like these, how could you not give them a try? I'd be so curious!
