Not too long ago I took a really cool canning workshop (by Jess Watson of OaklandLocal), just to shine up my skills before I started canning again. It was really helpful in giving me the confidence that I needed to start experimenting on my own, as it's been a long time since I last canned. My first project at home was curds - I made lemon curd, and an awesome tangerine curd! So sweet but sooo good. Neither of them lasted long around here at all!
Since then I have all sorts of projects with canning, and hope to keep learning more. I'd like to find a way to integrate it with a foraging project, too.
