Mrs. Canner's Ginger Cookies


Mr. & Mrs. Canner on their boat, Glad Tidings.


Mrs. Clarabelle Canner and her husband, Phil, used to come to stay with my family when I was growing up. They were missionaries to the Cayman Islands and the Bahamas. In the fall, they would come to visit the migrant workers who came to pick apples. Mrs. Canner always baked Ginger Cookies for everyone.
