About Rachel Krantz

Grandma was short and stout, her stomach filled her lap when she sat -- the effect of having borne eleven children with the aid of a midwife. Only four survived: Mother (Fanny Krantz Kreinik), Uncle Jake, Uncle Max, and Tante Feige.... Grandma was serenely calm, patient, gentle, generous and hard working. There was butter to churn, at which I was delighted to be allowed to help, clabber to be made into cheese, as already mentioned, and the weekly bread baking. This was made of natural, honest rye flour, the baked loaves giving forth an aroma that lingers in my taste memory. A thick slice of that black bread, spread generously with fresh butter, sometimes a cut clove of garlic rubbed over the crust, and it was a feast.

Leah Kreinick Jacobowitz, _As I Remember_ 1962, pp 14-15.
