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:
