An announcement from IthaCan:
The book features a collection of international canning advocates. Techniques, tips, recipes and a fine discussion of "how jams and pickles are reviving the lure and lore of local food" fill its pages.
Hood begins the book with a Grimm's fairytale, which turns on the importance of eating to the season. She takes on some hot discussions as well, such as BPA in canning lids and the energy savings of local food.
To celebrate the publication and IthaCan's presence in the book, Ludgate Farm & Market is offering a special 10% discount on the book and on canning supplies now through Labor Day for IthaCan members. Be sure to mention you're an IthaCan member and you'll receive the discount.
