Food in Jars from around the internet

Jams and pickles

Last week, the New York Times food section featured Eugenia Bone and her new book Well-Preserved. Since then, she’s been answering reader questions on Diner’s Journal, and there’s lot of good info there for those of you who are looking to learn more from an expert (and Eugenia is a lovely, down-to-earth, experienced canner). There’s also a short video of Eugenia showing how to check the seal on a processed jar, if you’re curious about that.

Yesterday, I kept spotting gorgeous food in jars all over the city. First, I went to a short soap making demonstration at Duross & Langel (a most beautiful soap and body products store) and discovered that they keep their soap ingredients in an eclectic array of glass jars. Later, I stopped into the new flower/chocolate shop across the street called Verde and spotted a small selection of housemade preserves and pickles. I brought home a small jar of Rhubarb Caramel, as I’d never seen anything like it (and now have a burning desire to attempt to recreate it).

I’ve been spotting a lot of food in jars on the internet as well recently. Here are some of the ones that particularly caught my eye.

And on to the savory stuff…

  • I have tried a little bit of canning and I think the rhubarb mustard has to be next on my list. Thanks for all the links!

  • Hey Marisa! So glad you put that link up (merci!) because it reminded me that I’ve been meaning to stop by your new blog ever since you told me about it at Headhouse. I LOVE IT!!! Great stuff! And I must say that I’m loving the jar porn in particular. Teehee. As you might have noticed, I’m on a rhubarb kick at the moment and will definitely explore the links you included. I’ve also bookmarked Food in Jars and will be back to check up regularly now. 🙂

  • Marisa, I just stumbled on your site and I LOVE it. I have a bit of a jar obsession myself, I’ve actually been planning a blog post about my jar-filled pantry. I can’t wait to try some of your recipes, they look wonderful. And I live in Portland, so I love seeing your little references to my hometown! Awesome blog, keep up the good work!

  • I recently found your blog and quickly added it to my “feed” on my Yahoo page. What a wonderful subject! I have canned and pickled etc since I was about 6. First by my Mother’s side and now on my own. As my professional life slows down, my preserving is taking up that time. Thanks. PS the rhubarb mustard, I have rhubarb growing and YES I will make some of that.
