Hello friends! I hope everyone is having a good end of summer season! I’ve done a truly insane amount of canning this year, with a handful of projects still lined up on my dining room table. Like some of my farmer friends, I’m really looking forward to the first hard freeze, when mother nature will finally force me to slow down!
I’m taking from the canning pot to check in about a couple things I’ve got going on in the coming days.
Tonight at 7 pm (Monday, September 17) I will be at the Mullica Hill Branch of the Gloucester County Library System, in Mullica Hill, NJ, offering a free workshop on how to make your own sunflower seed butter. This is a bit of a departure from my regular demo topics and I’m excited to be branching out!
On Saturday, October 27, I am teaming up with the folks from Fillmore Container to teach a Pear Vanilla Caramel workshop at The Livery at Lampeter Cafe. This will be a hands on workshop in which you will team up with a group of fellow workshop participants to make a batch of caramel. I love these fruit-based caramel sauces because they are safe for water bath canning. The workshop is $40 and you can sign up here. If you want to make a day of it, Amanda Feifer will be teaching a kombucha workshop that morning.
Because of the sunflower seed butter demo, I won’t be doing a livestream tonight.
