Happy Monday, friends! I’ll be back later with the weekly giveaway post, but I wanted to drop in this morning and share a couple of events I’ve got on the schedule for the next seven days. I’ll have cookbooks with me for sale at all three of these events!
This Thursday, May 16, I’ll be at the Glenside Free Library in Glenside, PA at 6:30 pm to teach an introduction to pickling class. We’ll talk about hot pack, cold pack, and how to ensure a crisp pickle. This is a free event and there will be plenty of pickles to taste at the end of the evening.
On Saturday, May 18, I’m teaching a low-sugar strawberry mint jam class at Greensgrow (an urban farm in Philadelphia’s Kensington neighborhood). The class is from 12 noon to 2 pm and costs just $35. Click here to sign up.
Finally, on Sunday, May 19, I’m teaching a strawberry vanilla jam class at Blooming Glen Farm in Perkasie, PA. This class is from 10 am – 12 noon and costs $50 per person. If you’ve never been, Blooming Glen is an impossibly beautiful farm and offers a lovely setting for a class. Click here to sign up.
Note: Registration for the classes this weekend is currently low, so in order to ensure that they goes forward, please sign up sooner rather than later.
Until just last weeknd my larder housed only store bought items. I canned for the first time!!! Granny’s apple butter and 2 batches of strawberry/rhubarb jam. My shelves are starting to look like Grandma’s did and are so much more satisfying for the soul. I am hooked! Today I headed back to the store for more jars (I’m taking on salsa) and saw these Ball herb jars. Hmmmmm… how much nicer would my spice cabinet look with these little lovelies filled with my garden’s bounty? Scoot over my store bought spicy friends it’s a new Ball game now!
