Preserving Isn’t for Jar Only

 


My garden has been bursting with veggies lately and my husband and I can’t keep up! To make sure nothing goes to waste I have begun to freeze some of my goodies so that we can enjoy them in the future.
The art of preserving food isn’t limited to just canning; freezing is another method of preserving which has been used for centuries, and it’s a method I use often. 

Happy Fourth Of July

Something to share from All In A Jar

I had a class yesterday with some locals . I’m part of Nextdoor Lake Camanche North Shore. It is a wonderful site that the neighbors can share events, ask questions and let each other  know what is going on in our community. I offered a class at a reduced price to introduce All In A Jar to the neighbors. I’m so grateful that some students signed up. We had a great time together. This is what I found on the site today. I wanted to share it with you.

Penny’s All in a Jar Class

I have to let my neighbors know about my experience at Penny Porter’s Canning class yesterday! Right when you arrive at her home, the stage is immediately set; The Farm is exquisite! I got to meet All in a Jar owner Penny, sweet Wendy, and the chubby pupper Ruby. We visited the thriving, full garden and pulled the beets straight out and into the house! The class was informative and simply a blast! The lunch was pesto pasta and salad, and even the pesto was intriguing as she used kale and walnuts, sooo good! The pickled beets in the salad assured me that although I may have come into the class as a “beet sceptic”, in a few weeks I will be digging into a jar of deliciousness. 

I learned so much from just this one class. I’ve been looking for an easy way to introduce myself to the kitchen besides the slow cooker and i think I found my new favorite dinner/gift maker!

Thank you so much Penny for putting on this much needed class and being so hospitable. I’m already gushing to my family and friends about the experience and planning our class.
