A few weeks before my dear hubby passed away, he requested pancakes. Doesn't our love for someone always involve food? Our family has always loved German Pancakes and I made those for him. They're almost like a crepe, but somewhat thicker. I filled my sweethearts with sugar and cinnamon, and mine with some raspberry jam.
This was my treat of crepes, which were served on a cut glass snack plate that I bought at our Trade Days. The cup is perfect for holding fresh fruit or even a cup of soup. The rose teacup is part of a set gifted to me from some dear friends. My faux roses are in a pretty container from Hobby Lobby. All was served on my Southern Living wrought iron tray lined with a crocheted doily. You can find that recipe for German Pancakes here.
3 3/4 cups mashed raspberries (wild berries are best)
1/4 cup lemon juice
6 1/2 cups sugar (Betty said to stick with the exact amount of sugar)
1 teaspoon butter
1 pouch of Certo (Betty never used powdered pectin)
Mash the berries then stir in the lemon juice and sugar. Bring to a boil over high heat and boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and add the butter (this removes the foam) and the pouch of Certo. Stir for 1 minute more, remove from heat. Fill jars, process, and enjoy!
