This is a time of year to share and what a blessing it was that Sis and I had were invited to give a canning class to a group of wonderful ladies. I’ve done canning classes plentyof times before. But this one was the biggest group of gals, thanks to the lovely Pantalone family and their spacious kitchen, which was big enough to handle 15 ladies and loads of berries & beans.
We spent the better part of the afternoon jamming and canning away. We tackled batches of strawberry jam, blueberry and sage jam; even some dilly beans and carrots were “put up.” Proud to say that even though it looks chaotic, there were no run, drips or errors on anyone’s part. You gals rocked! It did get rather hot in the kitchen with all five stove burners going; but a little sweat was worth the sweetness of everyone taking home the fruits of our labor.
Like to thank Michelle for inviting us back, and also the Patalone family and their wonderful hospitality and, last, but not least, Kimberly & Ashleigh who came along to assist us. You two were a BIG help!
