I write about food and rural life from a farmstead near Scio, Oregon, where I continually experiment with the produce from my orchard and large garden. The Joy of Pickling, The Joy of Jams, Jellies, and Other Sweet Preserves, and Cold Soups are the fruit of my empirical research as well as my studies of culinary traditions around the world.
If you’d like to arrange for me to teach a preserving class, give a demonstration, or help with a publishing project, please write me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Write me at the same address for permission to republish any material from this blog. For permission to reprint a recipe from The Joy of Pickling or The Joy of Jams, write Adam Salomone at the Harvard Common Press, email@example.com.
