My best friend from grammar school, Cae, has agreed to let me watch, maybe even participate, as she cans tomatoes. I'm so excited to see the process from start to finish. I was not blessed with any relatives who lived near me who enjoyed domestic kitchen arts, hence, no elder from whom to learn them. Luckily Cae is as fearless in the kitchen as she is with her knitting. I'll be back later with pictures--I plan to document the process so I may more easily replicate it on my own.
What's your kitchen art status? Do you can? Freeze? Preserve? Tell me how you learned it. Or blog your story and link to it in the comments. I'm ever so curious about how we learn such things.
