Mississippi Delights


I was intrigued by this display of jelly at a local antique shop (let's hope it is not really that old!). What is mayhaw? Is that some kind of southern specialty? If anyone knows anything about it, please educate me. I don't really like jellies and jams, but I might be willing to give this one a try.

Some people make wine out of it too - sounds good!
