Welcome to the 2014 growing season. If you’d like to be contacted as the classes are scheduled, sign up for the newsletter. We are introducing “Scratch Cooking from the Pantry” to spark creative ideas on how to cook from your plenished pantry as well as help you decide your focus for food preservation for the upcoming year. Call us if you have a particular interest we might consider including. (425-788-5696) I’m spending a good bit of my time partnering with Jubilee Biodynamic Farm outside of Carnation in the Snoqualmie Valley.
Summer In A Jar teaches safe food preservation methods: canning, drying, freezing, quick pickling and fermentation. Additionally, we offer an invitation to remember, or taste for the first time, honest, fresh, flavorful food in season. We teach how to put up the current seasonal crop so it’s available the next winter and how to weave the bounty of your pantry into workable daily menus. There’s a rhythm to it that looks different in every home but the invisible thread that holds it all together is an affirmation to choose healthy, real food, sustainably grown to nourish our families. We don’t get there all at once, but one step at a time. We’ve adopted the word below to emphasize our desire to walk graciously and incrementally toward deeper, richer, healthier living.
…just a little– bit– better. A little more flavor, a little less processed, a little more nutrition, a few less empty calories, a few more meals with family and friends and a bit less fast food on the run. Come and join us.
We’re all waiting for you!
These kids are fast learners; they keep us on our toes. They will definitely be leaders in changing the way America eats.
