Friends, this summer has worn me down to the nubbin. I want to be posting more recipes and canning tutorials, but it seems that I can only summon the energy for giveaways and event reminders. Thank you for being patient with me. And remember, even though I’m not producing as many recipes as is my norm right now, there is a very deep archive of recipes appropriate for this time of year. I suggest the Lazy Peach Preserves and the Honey Sweetened Tomato Jam.
Now, for some event reminders. I’m on my way to Fayetteville, Arkansas right at the moment (I’m sitting in the Dallas/Ft. Worth airport as I type) and I’m doing a pair of events that are very much worth your time if you’re in the area.
Saturday, August 30
On Saturday morning, I’ll be at the Fayetteville Town Center from11 am – 1 pm, leading a massive pickle making workshop. No registration is required and the materials fee is just $5 per person. Show up and I’ll walk you through the steps of making your very own batch of refrigerator cucumber pickles. I’ll also have books for sale and signature, if you’re interested. Details here.
Sunday, August 31
I will be demonstrating my small batch jam making technique at the Williams-Sonoma in Pinnacle Hills. There is no fee for this event and it runs from 11 am – 1 pm. I hope to see some of you there!
