Folks, please go easy on Barb - she volunteered to moderate this forum and enforce my policy, not her own.

It boils down to this (no pun intended) - In this age of litigious frivolity, I have to be ridiculously cautious about what is posted here. The last thing I want or need is to have to defend myself against a lawsuit filed by an opportunistic lowlife, claiming he/she became ill after following a canning recipe posted here.

However small, the possibility of this happening sadly, does exist. As a compromise, if you do have a treasured family recipe that you wish to share, but are unsure of whether or not it complies with modern day guidelines, please begin your post with the disclaimer:

MAY NOT COMPLY WITH CURRENT FOOD SAFETY GUIDELINES - FOLLOW RECIPE AT YOUR OWN RISK

It's the same reason why plastic bag manufacturers print "This is NOT a toy" on their bags and coffee cups have the words "Caution: HOT" printed on them.

One last word of farewell, Dear Master and Mistress.


Whenever you visit my grave,

say to yourselves with regret

but also with happiness in your hearts

at the remembrance of my long happy life with you:


"Here lies one who loved us and whom we loved."


No matter how deep my sleep I shall hear you,

and not all the power of death

can keep my spirit

from wagging a grateful tail.
