Summer Lovin’

My summer is getting busier and busier- and I’m loving it!  Summer classes are in full swing at First Presbyterian, and there are lots of library demos coming up- Fanwood, Old Tappan, and Kenilworth are next!  And of course, I’ve been canning away.  My fridge is full of lots of little bits that didn’t quite make a full jar- blueberry butter, cantaloupe-vanilla jam, and cherry syrup are all waiting for a spoon!

Last week, I spent a day at the River Vale Farmers Market with Stokes Farm, and I had a great time chatting with some old and new friends.  With my trusty fake pickles in hand, (no, really) I did dozens of mini-demos all day long.  Customers stopped by for recipes & to share canning stories, and there was the one guy who looked at all of my gear and said, “WHY?”  I replied, “Why not?”  The venue was perfect- how could you resist buying all of that gorgeous produce?

Don’t forget that in addition to my regular classes & library demos, I can also arrange for private classes (in Roselle or your own kitchen) or a demo.   Canning doesn’t stop after the summer-  winter can be the best time to create sauces & condiments.  (Fair warning to any daycare teachers: you’re probably getting homemade mustard for Christmas!) Contact me for more information on booking a private class or demo.

What have you been up to this week?  What’s in your canning pot or on the stove?  Tell me about it in the comments.
