This last Saturday, I did a peach salsa demonstration at Linvilla Orchards in Media, PA for their annual peach festival. The audience was filled with stone fruit enthusiasts, as well as a handful of Food in Jars readers. It was so much fun to meet everyone who made the trek and I hope I’ll see even more of you guys on September 24 when I make apple-pear chutney.
Speaking of canning instruction, this Saturday, August 13, I’m teaching a Garlic Dill Pickle class. There are still four more spots available in that class should you be interested in joining us. The cost is $45 per person and the class is being held at Indy Hall in Old City, Philadelphia. Leave a comment or shoot me an email (foodinjars AT gmail dot com) if you’d like to sign up.
Also happening this Saturday, August 13 is the National Can-It-Forward Day. Organized this year by Ball and the Canvolution folks, the event will include coast-to-coast canning parties, live demos in Seattle and a full day of streaming programming all about canning.

Finally, it’s Canning Week over at Simple Bites. Last year, I wrote about canning tomatoes and this year, expect to see a small batch plum jam recipe from me up there later in the week. Last weekend at the Big Summer Potluck, Aimée gathered Shaina, Megan and me to film a kick-off video. Take a look!
