I have really gotten into perserving over the past couple of years. It is such an inexpensive, creative, and useful hobby. I started out making and canning tons of different apple and pear items and strawberry jams. Now I have been venturing into pickling. There has definitely been some trial and error. However, I’ve been having a ton of fun and have stumbled upon some tasty canned goods.
A few months ago I saw many of my Instagram friends posting images of canned items with the hashtag #portlandpreservationsociety. I was intrigued! This past week I finally got up the courage to create my own perserved items to bring to the meet-up. It was the perfect meet-up for me to go to because it was also the Portland Preservation Society’s 1-year party. Everyone brought treats and bloody mary fixins for the party.
