Best wishes Rosie x
My ‘dear’ friend Pixie at You Say Tomahto, I Say Tomayto came up with a fabulous idea to host a preserves event called ‘Putting Up’. Pixie very kindly asked if I would like to join her in hosting this great event, of course I jumped at the chance like leaping off a cliff without any hesitation! I really enjoy making homemade preserves and I find this event very exciting, so I hope you will join Pixie and I as we preserve our way through fruit and veggies. If it's successful, (which we hope it will be) we will continue with it throughout the year, likely making it seasonal.
We're asking you to share your Jams and Conserves, Jellies, Marmalade, Curds and Butters, Chutneys, Pickles, Relishes and Preserves.
Once you've made your preserve send an email to puttingup(at)gmail(dot)com with the words 'putting up' in the title, by May 21st, with the following information:
* your name, and country
*the name of your blog*
*the name of your jam or preserve
* a link to your post* a photo of your entry (no larger than 500pix)
Please remember to link to both Pixie, You Say Tomahto, I Say Tomayto and myself Rosie, Rosie Bakes a ‘Peace’ of Cake, so others can participate. You are welcome to use our "Putting Up" badge.Feel free to present a recipe to go along with your preserve. In fact, that would be a wonderful idea, however, please keep in mind that the focus of this event are the Jams&Preserves and we really want to see that JAR!
Afterwards, we'll post a round up of all your entries and will raffle off a ticket for your chance to win this Jam & Preserve book. Have fun and we're looking forward to your creations!
You do not need to have a food blog to enter, so if you are are interested, simply send in your photo and recipe.
Pixie asked if I would give an online preserving interview with her, I was more than happy to share with her and our readers, tips and points I have learnt along the way since starting out on home preserving myself. I would like to share with you my interview which you can read posted on Pixie's Blog at, You Say Tomahto, I Say Tomayto Blog. Pixie has kindly added some of my photo’s to this interview from preserves I have posted here on my blog
