the book was published after his death. the author writes about meeting his future wife at the artist colony, Yaddo, in Saratoga Springs, NY. His struggles as a poor writer in NYC, and his life during the 1930s. I would read more books of his.
REVIEW - ingredients are very good - the apricot is very tart, tasting the orange and lemon but not the apricot. The Pear is very textured, grainy, like a pear and has more of a pear flavor than the apricot has of apricot. All in all - I think this company attempts to create a wholesome product. I would like to see the percentage of the main fruit listed to determine the authenticity of the fruit itself contained within. I paid $46+11 shipping for 12, 18 oz glass jars. A cost of $4.75 per jar which is a good price for a local product. They are not organic. That would be nice. But it appears from the video they do a good job of washing the fruit before they process. Apple butter is their main product - that includes only apples and apple cider - and that product is really good! Very thick and apple like.
