We all have family members that passed away before we were born, but have heard stories about our entire lives. My Great Granny Brown was one of those for me. She was my mother’s only grandmother & passed away when Mama was 13. Out of all her family members, her Granny Brown was the one she talked about the most.
It’s funny how memories & food can sometimes go hand in hand. Food just triggers things like that – and recipes that were originally from family members that have passed on take on a whole new meaning than just a simple dish. It’s like a piece of our loved ones that lives on.
