lets get ready to can!

The canning season is fast approaching.  Soon strawberry season will be here and I will spend a few blissful days making homemade, sticky jam.  There is still a lot to do- mainly, buy some mason jars- which are pretty hard to come by these parts.. ’cause lets face it Long Island is sooo not the country (well, at least not my part of Long Island).

Just in case you think I’m an old fashioned coot, there’s an article on canning in today’s New York Times.  Apparently, canning has made a come back.
