This Ain’t Your Grandmother’s Canning Book….

Unless your grandmother is partial to mango-peach habanero hot sauce. And if she is, your grandmother rocks.

In addition to the canning recipes, there are 50 other recipes with suggestions on how to use the fruits (and vegetables) of you labor! $24.05

I know it’s the end of the week, but clearly I have wine on the brain. This hilarious glass from Fred & Friends is perfect for anyone who loves to drink, or cook, or both! As Julia Child once said, “I enjoy cooking with wine. Sometimes I even put it in the food.”
