Fruit Bowl

Story given to me by my nanny

Wedding Present

My great granny and grandad were given a glass fruit bowl in 1939 for a wedding present. It is over 78 years old. My great granny used this bowl to make jelly.

Whenever they had visitors, my great granny would serve them this bowl of jelly with custard.

This bowl was past to my nanny. My nanny also uses this bowl to make the traditional jelly and also if it’s not been used for jelly, she will have it full with apples which she will use to make her apple tart. Me and my two sisters love to see nanny coming with a big bowl of jelly and we all get stuck in.
