Okay, Walter, I'll bite. Whatthehell is Mayhaw jelly? ^8
My in-laws make some every year and send some up to us. It's great on fresh biscuits. Delicious! ;f
Had mayhaw wine, but never addicted.
One of the many things I miss from my home state of Alabama. Right up there with Polk Salad.
Mayhaw jelly has many uses in relation to your Glock. It may be used as a lubricant/cleaner or as a remedy for your G19 magazine follower woes. Generously coat your 9mm follower in Mayhaw jelly and all your problems will go away!!
I just got a jar of this as a gift a few weeks ago. I was kind of scared to try it. Guess I'll have to now!
By all means give the jelly a try. Just don't light any matches or smoke around it. In fact, hold the jar far from your face when opening.
Yum, yum, good stuff!
I prefer elderberry
Sad to say, but I must remain jelly free for another 13 months.
Unless you're using it to lube your G19, you are posting in the wrong forum, O Great and Powerful One...;f
Even I sin and fall short of the Glory of God! Yep, thought I was in GNG when I started this thread. There's no alcohol or other volatiles in mayhaw jelly! But it is great stuff.
Okay, but WHAT IS IT? I've heard of many jellies--K-Y, naval (or was that navel?), even jelly beans, but not Mahaw jelly. Is it a uniquely Southern delicacy like cracklin' bread, a cure for Male Pattern Baldness, or the Final Solution for G19s with 2183 followers (as A Better View suggested)? Tell me, Walter!
So, is this to be used in addition to Mobil 1 or is this just a hasty substitute?
Sure those aren't "Crabapples"?
From Natures Nusery:
About the Mayhaw :
The Mayhaw tree, Crataegus aestivalis, is a slow-growing native North American tree that reaches a height of 30 feet with a rounded canopy that spreads to 35 feet or more. The dark green, deciduous leaves are often three-lobed and have red/brown undersides. The sparkling white, showy springtime flowers appear before the new leaves unfurl and are followed by the production of large, red-dotted fruits. The spreading, low branching habit of growth makes this best suited for planting in a large open area of turf. If regular pruning can be provided to keep low, drooping branches pruned, it can be located closer to a walk.
Mayhaw trees have small, round reddish fruit that are about 1/2 to 3/4 inch in diameter and resembles a crabapple. It ripens from mid-April early May, hence the name mayhaw. After frost, the leaves turn a beautiful yellow. Although the tree is naturally found in wet, shady sites, it is well adapted to drier, better-drained land and produces more and better fruit in full sunlight. The trees are long-lived and are known to produce fruit for more than 50 years. They are more resistant to disease and can withstand low temperatures better than common fruit trees.
Hope this helps someone...

Okay, now I know that Mayhaw jelly is edible and that WalterGA recommends it. What caliber jar do you all recommend and do you know a good online source?
Walter reloads his Mayhaw Jelly in 45 caliber mason jars covered with A-Grip, with aftermarket match lids. He spreads the stuff with a S.S. knife and an uncaptured 20# spring.;f
I'd cover my Most Important Part with Agrip, if I could find enough Agrip!
