pickle palooza

I have been swamped these days not only with canning, but with putting on a celebration of putting up!

After a few years of wishing I would find time to organize a canning swap, I decided to just jump in and organize the Kootenay’s 1st Annual PICKLE PALOOZA: A Canning + Jamming+ Preserving + Prepping Festival of Local Harvest!

The Valley Permaculture Guild (another recent undertaking) is hosting Pickle Palooza THIS  Saturday October 20 @ Vallican Whole Community Center in the charming Slocan Valley from 10-2. More details here.

We have invited some fabulous local experts on various preserving techniques (curing / canning / fermenting to name a few) Along with groups working on growing good organic food, sharing good organic food and everything in between. The day will also boast a canning contest and a jar swap (finally my dream swap come true), there will be live demos, a tasting ballot, and canning crafts!

So my SOLE followers…. after this weekend… nose to the ground I will be back at it blogging up a storm, until then if you are inspired to can and jam here are some of my favorite canning recipes posted over the years:
