Having recently sold the farm where for 22 years I grew, prepared, and wrote about fruits and vegetables, I’m continuing my experiments in the garden and kitchen of a little bungalow in the small town of Lebanon, Oregon.
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. I also develop products for Crisp & Co., a pickle manufacturing company in Delaware, and I teach preserving classes on request.
I am a member of the the Association of Food Journalists, the Oregon Ark of Taste Committee, Seed Savers Exchange, and the boards of Slow Food Corvallis and the Santiam Food Alliance.
If you’d like to arrange for me to teach a 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.
