Every Christmas my sweet mother-in-law would give each member of the family a box of candy made by Esther Price. This candy is made in our home town Dayton, Ohio Esther Price Candies :: Esther Price Story. For the past two years, since Nanny (the grandchildren's name for my mother-in -law) passed away, our nephew Doug & his wife Nancy have passed along this traditional gift to us. Thanks Doug and Nancy for blessing us once again with memories and delicous candy!

This morning our Bible study met at my house for brunch. Each lady brought a dish or a drink. We had some wonderful food and great fellowship with each other! After we ate Marjo and I were given a gift for our leadership to the ladies. We felt so loved and blessed. We love each lady that is a part of our study. Thank you friends!

No more let sins and sorrows grow,
He rules the world with truth and grace,

This recipe has been in our family for years. My mom made it at holidays. I have no idea where it came from. I have carried on the tradition of making it each year. I love old recipes and the way they are written sometimes makes me laugh. I hope you will enjoy this one and make it one of your traditional dishes.
1 C. ground cranberries
1 C. ground unpared apples
1 C. sugar
1 pkg. gelatine (I use strawberry jello)
1 C. hot water
1 can crushed pineapple
1/2 C. seeded Tokay grape halves (I use purple seedless grapes)
1/4 C. broken nut meats (I use pecans)
Combine cranberries, apples and sugar. Dissolve gelatine in hot water; add pineapple (with juice). Chill until partially set. Add cranberry-apple mixture, grapes and nut meats. Pour into mold (I most often put in a pretty glass bowl that belonged to my mom). Chill overnight or until set.

1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes,

Pepper to taste
Place beans in a large saucepan or Dutch oven;
add enough water to cover by 2 in.
Bring to a boil; boil for 2 minutes.
Remove from the heat; cover and let stand for 1 hour.
Drain and discard liquid. Add water to the
beans; bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for
30 minutes. Add remaining ingredients; bring
to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for
1 -1/2 to 2 hours or until beans are tender.
Discard bay leaves.
