The Canning Queen of the Desert

The Canning Queen of the Desert from Etsy on Vimeo.

Check out this video sent to me today by one of the producers of Etsy. It’s on Classie Parker (AMAZING NAME, yes???!!!), an urban farmer and canning instructor toughing it out in the wilds of NYC.

She’s a joy to watch. I especially love when she proclaims “Canning is sexy, baby!” Given that I’ve been sweating something fierce in my kitchen lately as I can plums, nectarines and peaches sent to me by the Washington State Fruit Commission (more on this to come…), I can only hope she’s right!

Enjoy!!!
