Actually, I'm not sure where Ellen gathered these May apples. And if I do find out I will not be allowed to broadcast it. What is certain, is that it is delicious. I tasted some this morning, using Tannie Martha Ferreira's antique silver teaspoons.
Some people have the jelly touch, and Ellen is one of them. Her jellies are clear, only just set, so that they quiver suggestively and throw off refracted light from their delicately coloured contents. I am very lucky to be a recipient of one of four jars of this year's May apple jelly.
You may remember the saga of my first May apple eating experiment, and the way it ended. It is safe to say that this time, the fruit will stay down.
