The first time I watched this video, I wanted to leap through my computer screen and give Classie Parker a giant hug. She’s a New Yorker who is teaching people to can and she does it with joy, humor and enthusiasm. What’s more, she’s been doing it since before it was cool and I hazard a guess that she’ll keep on doing it well after the current canning trend passes. She is someone I most definitely want to meet someday.
Big thanks to Etsy for producing this video and for to Jeremiah for bringing it to my attention!
