Episode 23

 

Guest: Emily Paster

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!
