Yeah?. I hope to see you at the Botanic Garden.
Marisa – it was lovely to see you again at the Ela Library in Lake Zurich tonight. Thank you for sharing your passion and wonderful recipes with us. Even though I have a little practice canning, hearing about the process and watching you cook was like hearing a favorite story retold. And I even learned a few tips, particularly on how to use Pomona’s Pectin. Have a great rest of the week here in Illinois and safe travels back to PA.
