Canning Techniques for Jarheads

The Glass Rooster Classes

the glass rooster!

You can’t can. But you can learn. Therefore, you can learn to can (isn’t logic astounding?).

There’s no one better to teach you than canning maestro Laura McLaughlin, who just launched her canning and preserving company, The Glass Rooster. The Indiana transplant grew up on a farm where her family canned like crazy (all that produce!). After moving to the big city and tending to a rooftop garden, she decided to pass her plethora of knowledge on to others.

McLaughlin makes everything (and we mean everything) easy for you: She helps get you a deal on produce at the market (we scored 25 pounds of tomatoes for just $25), comes to your house with all the necessary equipment, and teaches you (and your friends) each step, regaling you with stories along the way.

After three hours, you’ll have at least a dozen Ball jars filled with seasonal goodness. Pop one open in the dead of winter when you want a taste of summer.
