Some girls love shopping for shoes or jewelry. This girl loves shopping for cookware. My "happy place is Williams Sonoma - if my mood is low, I spend a few minutes in that store and I'm recharged & ready to go! I'm LOVING the Williams Sonoma Agrarian Program - it's all about connecting the virtues of the homegrown and the homemade to our everyday table. Have you seen it? If you check out their catalog or go to their web site, you'll see all of these gorgeous images of nature's bounty - vibrant vegetables and perfectly ripened fruit just waiting to be preserved for winter. They're also promoting DIY Cheese & Kombucha, Beekeeping & Chicken Coops - it's all good stuff.
This summer, I've decided that I want to learn the art of canning & preserving food. I think I'm going to start off by making strawberry jam. Here are some of the tools I plan to use ...
1. Kilner Stainless-Steel Jam Pan 2. Stainless-Steel Canning Insert Rack 3. Jam & Sugar Thermometer 4. Kilner Jam Jar Tongs 5. Kilner Stainless-Steel Easy Fill Funnel 6. Kilner Preserve Jar 7. Welk Mini Mold Jars 8. A Book 9. And another Book
I'd love to hear your advice - any tricks I should know or additional tools I'll need? I'm off to the market to pick up some berries!
