Canning has been popping up in media outlets all over in recent days and yesterday morning, I added my two cents to the hubbub by appearing on the Fox29 morning show for five minutes. I brought a collection of canning books, half a dozen jars of pickles and jams, two enormous pots and an assortment of canning tools to dress the table and just casually chatted with Michelle Buckman, the consumer reporter. The time flew by and I had a great time. If you weren’t able to catch the segment yesterday, you can see it online here.
Thanks to the Fox29 segment and the piece that appeared in Daily Candy last week, my canning classes at Foster’s are rapidly filling up. I’ve been told that there are just two spots left in the July peach class and classes on pickles and tomatoes are also nearing capacity. If you want to take one of those classes, the time to sign up is now. We’re also considering adding another class or two, if you’re intrigued by that (maybe blackberry jam?), leave a comment so that I can gauge interest.
