About the event:
Fire up your pressure canners and break out the jams, the Second Annual Triangle Canning Swap is right around the corner! This event is hosted by Matt Lardie of Green Eats Blog and brings together home canners from across the Triangle to swap some of their best goodies, helps promote food preservation and the art of canning, and is just plain fun. Last year’s event was a blast with items like homemade limoncello, blueberry syrup, dill pickles, and Chef Chad McIntyre’s famous bloody mary mix from his Raleigh restaurant, Market.
Here are the details for this year’s event:
What: Second Annual Triangle Canning Swap
When: Sunday, August 19th at 3pm
Where: Fullsteam Brewery, 726 Rigsbee Ave, Durham
How: You bring up to 5 jars of your homemade jam, jelly, chutney, sauce, salsa, pickles, etc. Local ingredients encouraged, and bring copies of your recipe to share if you like! For each jar you bring you get a chance to swap. Names will be dropped into a hat and chosen at random, and we’ll keep drawing until everyone has gotten to make their allotted swaps.
