All different kinds of surprises occur when we get into family history! This might be called a generational food discovery.
So far, when I’ve asked around for any recipes from Grandma Weber (Tillie Kuhn Weber) no one in the family knew of any that survived. Today I was talking to my sister, asking her to share one of her own favorites for Family Recipe Friday. She casually mentioned that I should use one of the recipes of Grandma Weber’s that she had given me. Oh no, not this girl. I sure don’t have any! You know how sisters are though. After our discussion went into “yes, I did. And, no you didn’t” she very kindly scanned them in and emailed them. Yay! Thanks Marti. You're a great sis.
I chose to share the Divinity Fudge recipe today since it had to be one of our mother's favorites. I would say it spans several generations. Grandma Weber perfected it; Mom (her daughter, Rosemary Weber Niehaus) loved to eat divinity fudge; then somehow, my sister (Marti Niehaus Fleetwood) preserved the recipe; and I am positive this one will be sampled in many cousins’ homes very soon, and passed along to the next generation.
What a gift….Enjoy!
