Jam & Tea at Valley Forge Flowers with WHYY

On Sunday, May 8, I’m teaming up with WHYY and Valley Forge Flowers for a special canning demo and book signing. There will be tea, jam, and the chance to watch me make jam from a comfortable seat. Tickets are still available for this event and they cost $35 for WHYY members, and $42 for non-members (that price includes a copy of Naturally Sweet Food in Jars).

If you’re looking for something special to do with your mom or other favorite maternal person, this event is for you, because May 8 just happens to be Mother’s Day. However, the program is not Mother’s Day specific, so please come even if you don’t have a mother to fete.

The event is from 4-6 pm and tickets can be obtained here.

The 10! Show and Radio Times

I hope all you in the US have had a safe, relaxing and fun Independence Day! I spent my holiday Wednesday taking a long walk with Joy, floating in the pool with friends, eating pizza and watching the various July 4th celebrations on TV. Not an entirely traditional way to celebrate, but perfectly lovely.

I just wanted to drop in and let you all know about a couple of my upcoming media appearances, should you be inclined to tune in. On July 5 (that’s tomorrow), I’ll be doing a pickling demo on The 10! Show. It’s one of Philly’s local morning shows and can be found on NBC10 at 11 am.

Then, on Friday, July 6, I’ll be a guest on Radio Times with Marty Moss-Coane during the 11 am hour. Radio Times airs on WHYY, Philly’s local NPR station. The show streams live online, so you can tune in even if you’re not in the broadcast area. They take calls, so if you want to call in to ask canning questions or say hi, please do. I’d really love to hear from a blog reader or two!

Finally, did you hear the big news? Cuppow released a lid that fits regular mouth jars on Tuesday! I’ve already got mine (thanks Cuppow!) and am entirely enamored of it. I’ll have a review and giveaway up on the blog tomorrow.

Mark your calendars, canners! This Thursday, August 5 at 12 noon (eastern time), I’ll be participating in a  web chat with Jim Coleman, host of the WHYY show A Chef’s Table. We’ll be answering canning questions between 12 – 1 p.m., so if you’ve got a burning quandary, now’s your chance to get an answer.

To participate, click here. I’ll be sending out reminders a few minutes before we get started via the Food in Jars Facebook and Twitter accounts, so follow or fan if you think you’ll need a nudge to log on.
