Upcoming Events: Princeton! Kennett Square! Lancaster!

Preserving by the Pint sliver

I know I’ve been saying this for weeks, but the end of my season of classes and events is now firmly in sight. If you’ve been wanting to take a class or pick up a signed copy of one of my books, now is the time. I have seven events left in October, two more in November and then I’m taking most of the next six months from doing classes, events, or book signings so that I can focus on writing my next book.

I’d like to draw particular attention to the pair of classes I’m teaching at Fillmore Container this weekend. These will be active, hands-on classes and all participants will get be taking home fresh, hot jars of delicious preserved food. If you’re at all interested in one or both of these classes, register today

We’re also going to offer a book signing at the end of the day.

Livestream Canning Demo at the Chemical Heritage Foundation

peach salsa demo at Linvillla

This picture is not of me at the Chemical Heritage Foundation, but it’s one of the few I have of me demonstrating somewhere.

Friends! Just a quick note to let you know that I’m doing a pair of canning demonstrations tonight at the Chemical Heritage Foundation in Old City, Philadelphia. These demos are part of First Friday events and are free and open to the public (should you want to stop by).

If you can’t make it in person, CHF will also be streaming the both presentations live (5:30 and 6:45), so you can see me in action, even if you’re far away.

I have embedded the livestream code after the jump in this blog post, so you can watch directly from this page. Or, if that’s not working in an ideal manner, you can also watch here.

Finally, if you can’t catch one of the demos live, they will live on indefinitely on the CHF Youtube page.
