Happy Sunday, friends! I hope everyone had a good weekend. We’ve got a busy week coming up around Food in Jars HQ. On Monday, July 10, I’ll be doing a fridge pickle demo at the Exeter Community Library in Exeter, PA from 6:30-8 pm. On Thursday, July 13, I’ll be at the Glassboro Library doing a similar fridge pickle demo from 7-8:30 pm. Hope some of you local folks can join me! Now, links!

Big thanks to everyone who took the time to enter last week’s giveaway. I enjoyed reading all of your pickle memories.

This week has been a bit of a mess in my world. Just when I got myself clear of a 48 hour stomach bug, I managed to slide an inch-long splinter into the ball of my left foot, necessitating a trip to urgent care. I managed a pot of soup and some simply homemade pizza, but otherwise we’ve been surviving on scrambled eggs, bagged salad, and take-out. May this week be a little easier. Now links!


This Monday night (April 24, 2017), I’m going to do a Facebook Live broadcast on the topic of quick pickling. Join me at 9 pm eastern time and bring all your quick pickle questions!

Finally, our five winners in last week’s Cuppow giveaway. Thanks to everyone who entered!

Food in Jars Stickers for Sale!

Back in 2014, when Preserving by the Pint was just coming out, I ordered a box of stickers with the orange Food in Jars logo on them. I handed out these stickers at libraries, farmers markets, and book shops and was delighted people put them on their water bottles, laptops, and car bumpers.

I’ve been out of that first batch of stickers for awhile now and have missed them. So when a coupon code from Sticker Mule landed in my inbox, I decided it was high time to order up a new batch. Die cut and made of weather and scratch-resistant vinyl, these stickers are kind of awesome.

If you want one of these stickers, I’m offering up 150 for sale here on the blog for $3 a piece. If you want one, use this link to send me $3 via Paypal (make sure that your mailing address is accessible via Paypal, so I know where to send the sticker). Once I get your order, I’ll drop the sticker into the mail for you! And let me know if you have any questions!

Links: Date Charoset, Speedy Pickles, and a Winner

Happy Monday, friends! I spent all of Saturday working the Philly Farm & Food Fest, which left Sunday feeling like Saturday and today feeling entirely off. As a result, I’m running about a day late in every way, including with my blogging. So even though I normally do these links on Sunday evenings, I’m serving them up today. Hope they’re still tasty!

As as sad as I am that the Pint & Half jars I featured in last week’s giveaway with Fillmore Container are being discontinued, it was a pleasure to hear many of you all love them too! The giveaway winner is in the widget below!

While I am more than a little itchy for the true warmth of spring, I love the feeling of these days being balanced in between seasons. The air is cool, but the light draws more generous with every passing day. It feels hopeful and new and I am grateful for it. Now, some links.

Winners of the Mason Jar Lifestyle giveaway are below in the widget!

Links: Asparagus Tarts, Potluck Nation, and Winners

Spring tiptoed in this morning at 6:28 am. While I know intellectually that it’s a mostly arbitrary dividing line, I can’t help but imagine that the air smells sweeter and that the quality of the light is warmer and more substantial. While I dream about local strawberries and asparagus (still weeks away), some links.

My friend Kristin has launched a lovely movement called Potluck Nation. She’s the author of the book Modern Potluck and is hoping to use the power of the potluck to bring people together heal some of what’s been fractured in this country over the recent months and years. As an avowed lover of potlucks myself, I am fully on board and hope to host a few potlucks of my own (I plan on making the asparagus tart pictured above. It’s one I developed for a column I wrote many moons ago. I’ve reprinted the recipe below). Perhaps some of you will be inspired to do the same!

Here’s the winner of the Ball Canning giveaway I hosted last week!
