And time for articles about pickles and preserving. While I appreciate these, it's a shame that it only happens at this time of year. Now perhaps it's a shame because individuals and companies are only trying to fill up space since there is not much else going on -- Halloween Parties and Thanksgiving are a little ways off yet - though you wouldn't know that based on magazine covers. Perhaps it's a shame because I think you can pickle and preserve year around if you put your mind to it, but I'm the chick with a fridge so full of bread and butter pickles there is barely any room for the beer (gasp!).
I did think this was interesting enough to keep.
And what about Canvolution? Canning Across America's mission is right up my alley: Canning Across America (CAA) is a nationwide, ad hoc collective of cooks, gardeners and food lovers committed to the revival of the lost art of “putting by” food. Amen.
