Are you enjoying the summer bounty of wonderful fresh fruit and vegetables available at your local farmer’s market? Want to try your hand at canning or revive a family tradition? Does your freezer yearn to be filled?

Join other Slow Food members and friends as we swap stories and jams, chutneys, and other preserves. Bring a favorite or try something new–just tell us how it connects to Slow Food. Do you buy special ingredients from the farmer’s market? Create it from a treasured family recipe? Seek out local and sustainable products?

Please bring four pints of canned or frozen jam, jelly, preserves, or chutney and a copy of the recipe to swap with other members. Jam should be packed in four containers you don’t mind giving away such as canning jars, plastic containers, or vacuum-sealed bags. Want to swap more? Bring eight pints and take home eight pints. Please also bring a small sample to taste. Well-behaved children accompanied by an adult are welcome. Coffee, tea, and dessert will be served.

When: Saturday, July 19, 2008 at 2:00pm
Where: Private home (Simi Valley); address will be provided with confirmation of reservation.
Cost: Free of charge, but note that reservations are required.
