*The only person I ever knew with a connection to the Ozarks was my friend Deron’s mom. She was a fantastic baker, cook, canner and an all around talented woman in the home arts. She was also an Oregon Fruit fan. She passed away this past summer and when I saw this recipe I knew I just had to pay homage to a wonderful person, mom and grandma.
