I called my father’s mother “Migi” because I couldn’t say “my grandmother” when I was little. Migi lived with my grandfather in an imposing Victorian house just three blocks from our Bed and Breakfast; it is now the Clearfield County Historical Museum. When I was growing up it was such a fun visit; they had a maid named Bertha who was a wonderful cook, but Migi taught her everything!
This recipe for homemade catsup is a family staple; it is particularly tasty with Canadian bacon or country ham steaks. Not your usual supermarket hamburger-style condiment, this catsup tastes more like a mild barbecue sauce. Migi used to hire a local farmer’s wife to boil down the tomatoes, but it would probably be fine to use good-quality canned or bottled juice to save time. … Ginny Baggett
