She brought her book with her, “Food in Jars.” I was so won over by the lovely book design by Running Press and the interesting-sounding recipes that I bought one and had her sign it. Here’s a picture of the book, along with the small jar of Strawberry Vanilla Jam that I brought home with me from the class. (We tasted the jam before it was jarred and it’s delicious! It’s best to let this set for a week, though. I hope I have the patience to do that!)

Some recipes in her book that I would love to try: Chunky Fig Jam, Oven-Roasted Peach Butter, Orange Vanilla Curd, Pickled Asparagus Spears, Dilly Beans, Gingery Pickled Beets, Caramelized Red Onion Relish, Boozy Canned Peaches, and Homemade Cultured Butter. That’s a lot! I better get started!
Marisa was a fantastic teacher and very personable. If you happen to get a chance to check out any of her classes, do. I think you’ll find you’ll want to can something, too! She also has lots of delicious-sounding recipes on her website.
