It’s Whats to Eat Wednesday and my kids are gone, so my cooking has been a bit pedestrian lately. So Im sharing this great post I found yesterday. With people building great gardens and going to the farmers market, I thought this was a great fit; a book filled with home canning ideas! Some of the best food Ive ever eaten has been my moms home canned food.

I need to focus on studying for my test in September while the kiddos are away. I don’t already have the jars or other supplies for canning, and can’t really afford to buy them this summer.

For FSC Book Club, we attempted to line up fruits with their growing season, at least for the growing season here at FSC headquarters in upstate/Eastern NY. It’s not perfect, but it’s a start. Most of us in the northeast probably aren’t growing our own grapefruit…
