This weekend has gone by in a blur. Earlier tonight I finally paid a bit of attention to the quince juice I’ve had in my fridge since Tuesday. It’s now jelly (though it took a change of pots and several small burns to make it so). I’ve been sending plaintive wishes to the various gods of preserving that it finds its way to a nice set.
While you feast your eyes on some of these stunning photos from the Food in Jars Flickr group, I have a couple of reminders to share. The first tidbit is that I have just two canning classes left in 2010. Next Saturday, November 20 I’ll be leading a class on Cranberry-Apple Jam and on Saturday, December 4, we’re doing an Apple-Pear Chutney. Both classes are 11 am to 12:30 pm at Indy Hall (20 N. 3rd Street). Cost is just $45.
Later on Saturday, November 20, I’ll be teaming up with my delightful friend Tenaya (you may also know her as Madame Fromage) for a cheese tasting at Quince Fine Foods. This month, we’re pairing triple creme cheeses with three of my jams and chutneys. The tasting starts at 4 pm and costs $12. If you want to sign up, Tenaya has the scoop here.
My other bit of news is that the latest issue of Grid Philly is now available online and around Philadelphia. I wrote an article for them all about giving edible gifts and included three recipes. I’m totally in love with the Spiced Pear Bread I created for them and can’t wait to make it again. Click here and flip to pages 32-33 to check it out.
