~ Watch: Cassie Parker, the Canning Queen of New York — “I teach people how to put the love in their food by canning.”
~ Want: Ball’s Heritage Collection blue canning jars.
~Visit: June Taylor’s Still Room — “You preserve what’s around you. That’s why we cherish the fantastic regional foods that exist around the world…”
~ Read: Harold McGee on aging your canned goods — “Now I think of best-by dates as maybe-getting-interesting-by dates.”
~ Learn: The Master Food Preserver Program offered by the UMaine Cooperative Extension is now accepting applications for this year’s session. For those outside of Maine, request the program at your local cooperative extension.
