This image from Northern Sun got my mind working and inspired me in many ways. That inspiration has culminated in a rather exciting project that I’m kicking off today. This spring, summer, and fall I’m committed to Eat Local Because I Can. I’m determined to preserve everything I can from my local producers and foragers (as well as what we grow) so that I can indeed eat local for the entire year. While the challenge specifically mentions canning, all methods of preservation are welcome and will be employed by me.
Over the last few months, I’ve been interviewing and talking with other canning bloggers. Starting next Thursday and continuing for a few months, I’ll be sharing those interviews with you. There are some truly amazing folks who’ve agreed to talk canning with us, they’ve shared photos, stories, recipes, hints, tips, and so, so much more. I can’t wait for you all to be inspired by them. I hope you’ll join us as we talk about canning and jump in on the conversation.
While We Eat Local Because We Can, there will be:
- some extremely fun giveaways
- free printables meant to help with canning adventures
- recipes specifically geared towards the filling of glass jars
- those interviews I mentioned above
- a few surprises
Wanna join us? There’s nothing you have to do really, maybe leave a comment or two to let us know you’re participating but there are no requirements. If you’re a new canner, let us know how we can help you gain confidence so that you can eat local because you can. If you’re an experienced canner, we welcome your thoughts and advice too. It is my sincere hope that this challenge will be inspirational and full of empowerment for you as we all Eat Local Because We Can.
