Seattle will play host this week and next to a few luminaries in the canning world, and we couldn’t be more jazzed. Whether this is your first canning season or your tenth, these upcoming events are great opportunities to deepen your practice at the canning kettle.
Starting on Thursday, May 31, Sherri Brooks Vinton, author of “Put’em Up!” (and two forthcoming preserved titles) will kick off her Seattle trip at Book Larder, where she’ll lead a 90-minute demo, both pickled and preserved. Details here.
Sherri’s next stop is Puyallup, where she’ll be presenting at the Mother Earth News Fair, a weekend-long showcase of gardening, DIY and all things green. Our money is on Sunday, when Sherri leads a jam demo at 11:30 a.m., followed by CAA recipe editor Brook Stephens, who leads a pickle demo at 2:30 p.m. (You don’t want to miss Brook’s demo — her pickles are to die for!) Fair details here.
Next weekend, Philadelphia-based blogger and author Marisa McClellan will be showing off her new book, Food in Jars (also the name of her popular preserving blog) at Book Larder. Admission to Marisa’s Sunday morning demo/book signing is free. Details here.
