We fly away tomorrow for a much-needed vacation (to Ireland! I’ve never been and I’m so excited!). I have a handful of posts scheduled to appear in this space while I’m away, but please know that I’ll be waiting until I get back to reply to emails and comments. Please be patient with me! Now, links!


It was so fun to see how many of you were excited about the new Luigi Bormioli Lock Eat jars last week! Here are the five winners in the giveaway. I will be in touch with all the winners soon!

I am home again (how many times have I typed those words over the last six months?). It has been such a pleasure to be out in the world so much this year, but I am now looking forward towards entering my more introverted season. I’m hoping to revive my sourdough starter, get a batch of kombucha bubbling away, and finally get my next book idea out of my brain and down on paper. Until then, a few links.


The most recent giveaway for which there are winners is the one I hosted a couple of weeks ago with Emily Press (remember those fabulous labels!). The winners (as selected by the Rafflecopter randomizer) are Karapeers, Jennife, and Marilyn O. More tasty giveaways coming up soon!

Links: Fridge Pickles, Muscadine Jam, and a Winner


It’s been something of a rough week over here at Food in Jars HQ (plus, there’s the general heaviness of today’s date). I got home from Nashville on Wednesday afternoon, just barely recovered from food poisoning and promptly came down with a cold. I think my non-stop summer is starting to catch up with me. I’ve got just one last trip to get through (California! I’m headed your way later this week!), and then things will quiet down a bit. As much as I love the teaching, demonstrations, and book signings, I’m ready for a break!

five jars of tomato jam

I think I’m finally coming to accept that I can’t do everything all the time. I’ve been away from home for the last week and a half, and while I had grand plans to post in this space every day, I just couldn’t make it happen. There have been canning demos, time with my sister and her family, more travel, more demos, and then a wicked 24 hour bout of food poisoning keeping me away.

I’m currently in Atlanta, recuperating under the watchful eye of Lyn from Preserving Now. Tomorrow, I’m headed to Nashville for a class at the Green Door Gourmet (I will be completely recovered by then).

tomato jam and naturally sweet

I spent the weekend in New York and Western Mass, finding a really good balance between working and relaxing (it’s not always easy to do). I taught at Amber Waves Farm in Amagansett (we’re already talking about doing another class next season) on Friday afternoon, spent Saturday morning demoing at the Great Barrington Farmers Market, and taught again at Hillsdale Home Chef on Sunday afternoon.

Saturday afternoon and evening was spent hanging out with some dear friends. It was so good and was exactly what I needed to shake loose from the tension that’s been haunting me.

Thank you for all the enthusiastic entries into last week’s Orchard Road giveaway. I loved hearing about the things you’ve all been preserving lately. The winner of the giveaway is #500/Manda. Stay tuned, I’ll have another giveaway up shortly.

produce from Homefields Farm

Summer is flying by. Earlier tonight, I canned up a batch of nectarine ketchup, pureed some white peaches for fruit leather, and cut up every last remaining piece of stonefruit in the the kitchen to make a final batch of jam. The coming week is going to be all about tomatoes and cucumbers, so I’ve got to clear the decks. I hope your kitchens have been equally active! Now, links!

And a couple things of mine…

Twelve ounce bbq sauce jars

The winner of last week’s Fillmore Container BBQ Sauce prize pack is Jennifer Garnette! I’ve got another terrific giveaway coming your way later this week, so stay tuned!
