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.
