Do you can your own vegetables?
Susan Reimer is looking for people who are planning to do some canning this summer, and asked me to put out an appeal. She's doing a story for the food section on canning vegetables.
I've done a lot of pickling and preserving in my time, but one thing that never seemed worth the trouble was canning vegetables. My canned vegetables always ended up tasting like, well, canned vegetables. ...
I'd rather eat frozen or out-of-season fresh than buy produce to can.
I would feel different if I had a garden full of too much wonderful produce, but if I can get a basil plant to grow in my yard, I'm lucky.
Anyway, if you're interested in talking to Susan for the story, let her know by e-mailing her directly at email@example.com.
