As many of you know, a piece ran in last week’s Los Angeles Times food section about canning and the bloggers who use modern technology to share what they’ve been putting up. That’s Kevin West of the site Saving the Season on the cover (if you’re not reading his blog, you really should be). However, if you flip one page in, you’ll find me grinning out from the second page of the article.
Living all the way on the other side of the country from Southern California meant that I wasn’t able to see the article in print the day it came out. However, thanks to the power of friends and the speedy nature of the U.S. Postal Service, I had a copy in hand by Monday afternoon (thanks Carol!).
I was so pleased to be included in this article, but what thrills me even more about it is simply that such a large, national paper is talking about canning in a way that is both interesting and respectful (this recent piece in the Seattle Times also struck a really nice tone). Hurray for good press for canning!
