In a Jam?

Emily has been such a fun guest. In this next episode she talks with me in more detail about making preserves and then she shares the story of her other food projects -the food swap and her very excellent food blog.

The photos above are from a preserving class I attended with Emily as instructor. I got so excited about making preserves after my conversation with Emily that I decided to sign up for one of her classes to find out more about preserving foods in a hands on situation. I had a great time- she’s a super teacher. I even brought home some pickled carrots that I made in class. They were a huge hit! The next step is buying a few basic supplies and then I’ll pick out a recipe -that’s the fun part- I’m really going to try my hand at making preserves.  Wish me luck!

Preserving Foods with Emily Paster

I can’t think of a better time to find out about preserving foods than summer when farmer’s markets are teaming with beautiful produce. Emily Paster has so much enthusiasm and passion about canning you can’t help but get caught up in her story.

She explains preserving from a Jewish food history perspective and gives us the down low on canning methods. And of course she shares a great recipe with us. I think I might even try this myself at home!
