Matt's parent's recently went to a family wedding out of state. Matt and I weren't able to attend. He sent his mother with a jar of cherry jelly to trade his aunt Verna for a jar of the jelly she produced this year. When they got back to town Sharon stopped by with not only a lovely jar of current jelly, but a surprise bonus jar of homemade maple syrup too. Matt and I had stopped buying maple syrup right about the time we started buying local honey so this was quite a welcome treat to say the least. Plus, I didn't even know Verna made syrup. I was pretty darn impressed.
One jar of jelly for one jar of jelly + maple syrup = best trade ever.
