We cannot forget about the sweetest of all, namely, the making of gems using firewood and following old traditional recipes without additives or preservatives. The moment the fruit are ripe and ready to be prepared, the homemakers start competing by trying to make the most tasteful and fragrant canned fruit for the winter time. Each would serve a little of the sweets prepared and then the tasting would begin with the help of the expert neighbours who gave the verdict. This way the secrets about making various gems have been passed on from one household to another. We would like to share them with you as we have collected and tried all the grandmothers’ secret recipes over time.
