It's a Canvolution!

Canning Across America

One of our first and most enthusiastic users,seattlebonvivant, recently told us about a project that she and some friends have set in motion. It's called Canning Across America (or CAA), and it's a national collective which aims to "promote safe food preservation and the joys of community building through food." We hope you'll pay a visit to their informative website, and then submit a recipe or check out the entries for this week's preserves contest. We also highly recommend  seattlebonvivant's Twiitter stream, in our opinion an exceptional food journal.

A New Way to Dinner, co-authored by Food52's founders Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs, is an indispensable playbook for stress-free meal-planning (hint: cook foundational dishes on the weekend and mix and match ‘em through the week).

I am a big fan of the Canvolution. I am very much a beginner when it comes to canning and so many have given me encouragement and advice. Such a great movement and I encourage those who are interested to check out their site and participate.

I LOVE the Canvolution website since I am such an avid canner/preserver, etc. Great shout-out to them!
