What is the Greatest Compliment You Have Received on Your Food

Two weeks ago a cousin-in-law sent me a message on facebook to tell me he had finished the last of the plum jam I made for Christmas gifts. Then yesterday when I saw him, he gave me a hug that literally lifted me off the ground and said he wanted to erect a statue of a jam jar with my name on it.

I've received some nice compliments before, but this was exceptional. What have you made that inspired such accolade?

PS. Plums had better be good this summer or my reputation is shot.
