My mother actually loved canned veggies. She was a really picky eater and I think I only saw her eat canned peas, canned green beans, canned corn, fresh cooked spinach, carrots, and maybe squash. And she boiled them all to near mush. I used to love the canned cranberry sauce and thought it was extra special if I was able to get the end piece with the imprint of the can on it. I really don't care for it anymore and rarely eat it. I do enjoy fresh cranberry/orange sauce but nobody else in the family does...sigh..
My mother used to make stuffing the way her mother made it: boiled up some potatoes and mash them, soak some bread in water then squeeze the water out by hand, mix it all together with chopped onion, Bell's Seasoning (a seasoning mix that is mostly sage), and an egg. It was stuffed inside the bird. A lot of people thought it was a strange recipe but as a child, I loved it.
I've tried to make it myself but it never comes out right. My own kids prefer my own bread stuffing, but I still miss Ma's stuffing.
