Paula, I remember years ago my mother making strawberry/fig preserves. We have scads of figs this year and I wanted to make the preserves, but couldn't find anyone with the recipe, so I'm going to use your apricot/strawberry recipe combination to make my preserves with figs; it's the amount of sugar and gelatin I needed to know about. Thanks for sharing this recipe with me. Deborah Newman

Paula, Made your fried green tomato burger recipes (with home-grown tomatoes!), along with the homemade peach ice cream recipe (with home-grown white peaches!). Both were deep-south-delicious! Thank you for sharing your cooking show, as well as your web site, as both are extraordinary gifts for everyone!
