You know how those Southern dessert recipes goùa cup of sugar here, a stick of butter there, eight squares of baking chocolate, or a pint of the seasonÆs juiciest fruit.

The blackberry jelly recipe that has graced Mason jars all over the South for decades? ItÆs here, and itÆs just about the best hostess gift you can offer up. Be sweet? You wonÆt be able to help it!
