In past years, I’ve made a critical error during my book tours and that is that I spent so much time on the road that I don’t leave myself enough time to do my own canning. This year, I’m trying to mend my ways and not commit my entire summer to travel.
So this month, I’m only doing a few events so that I can make sure I put up plenty of July produce. I’ll be back out on the road a bunch in August, though, so mark your calendars!

I think I’d store flower petals in the jar because they are sensitive to light. Thanks for the great give-a-way.
I just learned about your online free canning class! I’d love to attend the next one whenever that’ll be! Hopefully its soon!
