All About Sassafras

Do you like gumbo? How about hot tea? There's nothing better on a cold winter day than hot soups and hot drinks. How does sassafras enter into the picture? Climb up the mountain with Aunt Bett and me and we'll tell you.

When it comes to "street smarts", (Or should I say "Mountain Smarts"?) Aunt Bett was light years ahead of the USDA. Whenever politicians get involved red flags start popping up in my mind! She was (And IS) a grand lady in my humble opinion! I couldn't go to bed without reading this..

Leon, sometimes somebody says something like this and it makes me realize that I might be doing just what she wanted me to do. Remembering and sharing. Thank you so much.

I'm glad you read the article, but more important is that you let me know you understood. I wish I could remember everything she and my grandmother taught me, but sometimes the memories come creeping into my mind when the leaves change colors or when they begin to whisper in the wind or when I get a whiff of hickory smoke. And most of the time it's a memory I feel like I need to share.

Happy Fall! Stay warm.
