While fixing dinner, we looked down the drive and noted our Amish neighbor was headed our way with his horse and buggy. He alighted from the buggy with a pint jar in one hand. Sure enough they are making 2 batches of sorghum molasses today. He had brought a sample for us to try and just wanted to see what we thought regarding the progress so far. Yum. Richard shared what we knew of the process of making molasses. I shared pictures of specific questions from our poster of molasses making.
Toward the end of our conversation, Hollis Dale, MaLinda and Lurah arrived. Hollis Dale is the "fire keeper" of the process of our family. More information was shared.
This little exchange felt wonderful. I just love to see developments on the order of "neighbors and friends". Sure makes a person feel at home.
