Links: Pickling Cucumbers, Seven Day Pickles, and Winners

I got back to Philly last Monday morning, met Felicia Day on Tuesday (she was the keynote speaker at a conference my husband organized), dashed around on Wednesday trying to do work and then left town again on Thursday (it was a whirlwind week). The weekend of classes in Boston was terrific (thanks to everyone who came!) and now I’m home again and am scrambling to get ready for the photo shoot for the new book. Despite all the busy-ness, I managed to collect some links to share.

    I’m glad you said “pickling cucumbers” because all the farm stands around here call them “pickles”. It kind of drives me crazy. 😉

    Thanks for the fun links!

    That apricot jam sounds amazing but I wonder about the oven canning method… it’s not recommended by the USDA as being a safe way to can food. What are your thoughts, Marisa?

      Korena, the oven sealing method is a technique that’s allowed for commercial producers. I think that if your jars are squeaky clean and you are sensible and cautious about maintaining a very clean workspace, it is fine for products that are high in sugar and acid. I still prefer the boiling water bath method, since I don’t find it at all cumbersome, but I know that not everyone likes it.

    You can’t just throw in “met Felicia Day” without any details – spill it!! (Oh, and I love both your blog and your book. Keep up the great work!)

    I know that U-pick blueberry place! They are my favorite place on Sauvie’s because their blueberry patch is small, but very productive, with big berries and friendly people. It’s so exciting seeing the places I love out in the wilds of the Internets.
