Food, Authors, and Stories

The coming of fall always makes me begin to think about food, cooking, and such -- don't ask me why.  Anyway, in the past few months I've come to love chutney to serve with all sorts of main dishes.  I made some from apples and apricots -- very good.  But when Jean Merrill died recently I read that she was well-known for her rhubarb chutney.  That sent me on a search for a rhubarb chutney recipe.  This one is very good.
 And fall always brings to mind molasses cookies -- again, why, I don't know but I love molasses cookies.  Here's my favorite recipe (from a recipe handed down to me by my Aunt Bernice) and a note about one of my favorite Brer Rabbit books.
