Sharran, thanks so much for sharing these lovely stories. I can see all this in mind. I think I figured out why you never learned how to make asphidity, though...LOL I want to plant some bee balm this year. Hadn't thought about adding it to apple butter, and I make yummy apple butter. Like that idea. Thanks again!

Great job!!!

Oh Sharran, I get so excited whenever I see another Aunt Bett article!!! And I love monarda - such a wonderful plant - I knew it had a common name of Oswego Tea, but didn't know how to brew up any. I always used to stand by it when I worked in a garden center :) I have a few treasured ones in my back yard, and have enjoyed watching them "creep" as they have expanded the past couple of years. Thanks so much for the recipe! I bet if you tried real hard you could remember the makings of that asphidity bag though :) - some things we just choose to permanently erase from our memory banks - LOL!

Thank you Rob and Cathy. This was one of my favorite articles to write. I too love the Monarda, and have several different colors growing in my garden, but my favorite will always be the dark red.
Glad you enjoyed the article.

Without a doubt, one of the finest short stories I've read in years. How very fortunate you were to have had Aunt Bett in your life. As a child of the suburbs, an asphidity bag is not within my experience, but I intend to Google it and find out what I missed

Pam, I hate to tell you, but you really don't want to ever be very close to an asphidity bag. But they are sure fun to remember.
Thank you.
