Really good day for our little cannery today! Midwest Living Magazine is one of my favorites, mostly for the yummy recipes (my favorite is a marinated shrimp and artichoke appetizer).
Today I received a request for pictures of our cannery and canning classes in action! I'm busy all day today and Sunday with girlfriends who are superb canners, digging through archives, trying to figure out what pictures are going to be most likely to look good to the public. My friend and fabulous photographer, Mary Feie, is coming Sunday to take some new shots of the cannery and some close-ups of food. I've helped with food styling before, but never with this much at stake!
Between Local Harvest and Midwest Living, our jams and relishes are getting some much-needed publicity. I've been doing farmer's markets for 14 years, and I'm looking forward to more of an internet-based business where I can ship jams and still make it to all my kids sporting events on Saturday mornings.
Wish us luck!
