Our twitter handle: @canvolution
Please join us!
Join the Canvolution!
Join our hour-long live chat on Twitter hosted by CAA founder Kim O’Donnel. All skill levels welcome; topics will cover recipe ideas for Can-a-rama this weekend and the 411 on safe food preservation.
Please join us!
One of our “Friends of the Canvolution,” Marisa McClellan of the wonderful website Food in Jars, has a quick video out about How to Pickle Veggies. This video, by the folks at The Daily, shows the basic process for pickling veggies–the actual recipe for the video is on their site.
Also, Marissa will be in Seattle this Sunday doing a demonstration at the Book Larder to promote her new book, Food in Jars:Preserving in Small Batches Year Round. If you’re around, check it out!
Editor note: yes, we are aware that the water in the processing part is a bit low. The water in your water bath canner should cover your jars by at least 1-2 inches.
Hey Canvolutionaries! Just a note to remind you that our next Twitter chat will be Tuesday, November 8th, 6pm PST/9pm EST! It lasts for one hour. Our topic will be All Things Pickles in honor of National Pickle Day on November 14th.
As part of the chat, we will also be giving away a Leifheit Canning Package, pictured above. As you know, Leifheit has been a supporter of Canning Across America from the beginning. This year’s package is a package of tools and jars to get you canning!
Our handle on Twitter is: @Canvolution. The chat hashtag is #canningchat.
Please join us for a lively and fun discussion!
Edited to add: Folks who join in on the chat will be entered to win the prize package. There will be no pre-chat entries accepted.
UPDATE: Congratulations to Niechelle at @sunhfarm for winning the Leifheit canning package giveaway!
Please join us on Tuesday, December 13th, 6pm PST/9pm EST for our next canning chat. We will be discussing holiday gift ideas!
Canning Across America (CAA) is a nationwide, ad hoc collective of cooks, gardeners and food lovers committed to the revival of the lost art of “putting up” food. Our goal is to promote safe food preservation and the joys of community building through food. We believe in celebrating the bounty of local and seasonal produce and taking greater control of our food supply. Together, we can.
