On Tuesday, a little dream came true for me. I went to a canning basics class at the Portland Homestead Supply Co.. I discovered this place shortly upon arriving in Portland and immediately signed up when I realized they offered classes.
Canning can be intimidating when you read about but our instructor, Cara from Modern Preserves had a calm, reassuring manner about it all. No need to fear, especially with sweet Belle the goat near!
So, if you want to learn to can and preserve the wonderful bounty happening right now, I would be remiss if I didn't tell you to hop on over to my dear friend Green Bean's amazingly timed canning set giveaway! I know I am entering because I want to be very prepared for Aug. 31 when I'll be at Portland Homestead Supply Co. for their tomato class.
