CAA Photo of the Week: Ready-Set-Can by Angela

Ready-Set-Can :)
Angela, one of our Flickr pool contributors, shared her photos of canning green beans and is our feature this week. She’s been a lifelong canner and counts over 26 years of experience!

For this project, she grew the green beans herself and later used a food processor to french them. They’ve canned 30 quarts this year, but sometimes have much more — in 2007, they had 150 quarts at the end of the long summer. She loves the process and providing for her family.

Thank you, Angela!

This week’s spotlighted photo is by Betty, also known as Snappy Shop on Flickr. This looks like a wonderful use of “chopped fennel, meyer lemon slices, organic white vinegar, salt, white pepper, fennel seeds and honey!” She also blogged about this recipe in her post on Delishy Town.

Thanks for sharing, Betty!

CAA Image of the Week: “Marie’s Pantry” by Marcia Milner-Brage

Marie's Pantry
For this week’s feature from our Flickr pool, we chose something a little different than what we normally do — a watercolor sketch Marcia Milner-Brage submitted to our Flickr pool titled “Marie’s Pantry.” Separately, Marcia’s also captured Marie’s harvest before the canning. She shared some comments about Marie and the pantry pictured above:

“Growing what one cans is a whole different level of dedication to sustaining one’s family. Marie grows much of what she puts up in their in-town backyard garden, here in Cedar Falls, Iowa. She also is an ace urban forager. Much of her apple sauce and spiced apples were made from apples scavenged from trees that had dropped their crop on the ground in public places, like boulevards.”

About herself and her art, Marcia says:
“As for me, I am a visual artist who draws and paints from the world before me–I paint on sight. Whether it be in my own home or hometown or of places I travel to. I do not use photographs. I also am a writer. And very much enjoy combining the painted or drawn image with word images.”

Thank you for sharing your talents with our flickr group, Marcia!

CAA Photo of the Week: Rosehip Jam by Amanda Rudd

Rosehip Jam
This week’s CAA photo of the week is by one of our newer contributors to the Flickr pool, Amanda Rudd. Those labels and jewel tones caught our attention, but the story behind making rosehip jam is a serendipitous one worth checking out on Amanda’s blog Ardor, Zest. For those of you reading from the US Pacific Northwest, you’ll find good leads and information on foraging also.

Thanks for contributing, Amanda — we’re looking forward to seeing more of your projects and photos!
