Q & A with Marisa McClellan + Giveaway: Food in Jars Cookbook and a Blossom Trivet

Food in Jars and Blossom Trivet

We’ve been fans of Marisa McClellan, blogger at Food in Jars, for quite awhile. However, it wasn’t until last month that we had the chance to meet her. Marisa shared her Spiced Plum Preserves recipe, along with lots of other great canning tips, at Lemon Street Market with an Essen Cooking School canning demonstration. We went home thinking … if anyone can demystify the art of canning, Marisa can!

Since we both have a love of jars and all things canning, we decided to giveaway a signed copy of her cookbook Food in Jars: Preserving in Small Batches Year-Round, as well as a Blossom Trivet by Spice Ratchet, which Marisa raved about during the canning demonstration. But, before we get to the giveaway details, we wanted to share a few thoughts from Marisa (aka Food in Jars).

Fillmore: Although the traditional canning season is coming to a close, that doesn’t mean we stop canning. What do you look forward to canning in the months ahead?

Food in Jars: When fall rolls around, I look forward to making jams, jellies, butters, and chutneys from apples, pears, persimmons, and quince. There are a number of recipes on my blog for these autumnal preserves. I’m a particular fan of the Pear Vanilla Jam and the Persimmon and Pear Chutney. Also, the recipe in the book for Honey Lemon Apple Jam is one that is quite delicious this time of year.Food in Jars Cookbook

Fillmore: We are so excited to giveaway a signed copy of your book, Food in Jars: Preserving in Small Batches Year-Round. Tell us a little bit about what inspired you to write it.

Food in Jars: As soon as I started actively canning several years ago, I knew that there was space in the cookbook world that focused on small, modern recipes that didn’t require many, many cups of sugar and used reasonable volumes of fruits and vegetables. That niche, coupled with my love of canning, naturally led to the book.

Fillmore: Do you have a favorite recipe or two that are always staples in your pantry?

Food in Jars: When it comes to my own pantry, I always make sure to have a couple jars of Tomato Jam on hand and Apricot Butter. Both are things that aren’t easy to come by at the grocery store and make my daily meals so much more delicious. Just because those are my staples doesn’t mean that everyone should make and stock those items. It will take all new canners a little bit of trial and error to determine what their must-haves are.

Fillmore: At the canning demonstration you raved about using a silicone Blossom Trivet, which we are including in our giveaway. Tell us a little bit about your discovery of this handy tool, which has replaced the traditional canning rack, and why you recommend/use it.

Food in Jars: The use of the Blossom Trivet as a canning tool was born out of my desire to find a better canning rack. Most traditional canning racks are made of metal and so they don’t hold up to regular boiling. Using a rack made of silicone means that it doesn’t rust or break down in the water. It also is a bit more flexible than a traditional rack, because it works in a great number of different-sized pots.

Fillmore: Of course, jars offer a whole other life beyond canning. What are some of the ways you use jars beyond canning?

Food in Jars: I adore canning jars for any number of tasks. I often use the pint-and-a-half jars as drinking glasses. I keep leftovers in wide-mouth quarts and store dry goods in the half-gallon size. My husband’s LEGO collection lives in a few different jars and my spices reside in a bunch of the wide-mouth half-pints. They are incredibly versatile!4 ounce tapered jar

    I think my favorite fall preserve may be the ginger-pear-rhubarb butter that’s cooking down in the slow cooker right now. The texture is so buttery/creamy/divine…

    Apple Pie Filling is a great thing to can and makes lovely hostess and Christmas gifts. Just make a syrup and put the apple chunks in a large wide mouth jar with the syrup and process for 20 minutes in a canner. Great all winter long for a quick apple crisp

    I saved all the cores and peels from apples and pears this fall (dehydrated, jam, frozen pies, etc.). Planning to cook them and use the juice for jelly. It’s an experiment that I read about on line, but I like the idea of using what would otherwise go to waste. I bag my apples on the tree to keep out worms so no pesticides to worry about!

    I live in California, so I’ll admit that my fall canning looks an awful lot like my summer canning. Our markets are still full of strawberries, peaches, plums, etc. (The rest of the country can now commence throwing things at me 🙂 That said, my favorite fall canning is tons and tons of tomato products. We go through Marissa’s Tomato Jam like crazy around here, and I also do a variety of salsas and plain old canned tomatoes for winter sauces and soups. Thanks for the excellent giveaway!

    I love the orange color of the trivet pictured. The thought of boiling it and not having it damaged is impressive. I can jars of chow chow for gifts, so I’ll be ordering a 2nd and 3rd trivet even if I win.

      Yes! My mother actually uses hers in her old agate tea kettle when she has just a couple jars of whole fruit or when she’s canning little jars…they get all rocky and don’t fit well in the traditional rack.

    I love to can pear conserve in October, serving it for Thanksgiving and giving it away at Christmas. I am currently canning Marissa’s Pear Vanilla jam, 4 batches so far. It’s Heavenly. I’ve decided to do more in tiny jars so I can give it away this Christmas. I am excited to find your source of jars. Thank you for entering me in your give-a-way!

    As I am starting to think about Christmas gifts, two recipes come to mind: Bacon-Persimmon and Bacon-Cranberry Chutney. These are tasty, luscious, decadent treats that I cobbled together from several different recipes. Every time make it, the chutney comes out different. That’s how we know that it is lovingly homemade.

    I LOVE fall canning, since the weather is a bit crisper and I feel much more like being in the kitchen around a hot stove than I do in midsummer. I’ve been making apple and pear butter, and this year I also tried making Italian plum jam with star anise (from Marisa’s blog), which is life changing.

    In the fall, I love canning applesauce for the year — it feels like such a victory when something lasts (i.e. enough on our shelves) until the following harvest! Of course, come winter, I take the raspberries that we’ve gathered out of the freezer and turn it into jam — at a time of year that is plenty cool and quiet for canning…

Right now I am up to 18 different kinds of jam for 2012, so you know what is on my Christmas giving list! Oh, and maybe some cordials. Thank you for sharing. The book and trivet will find a loving home here.

    Oh my! I love to can in the fall and winter. I love making pickled beets and crabapple jelly. When the snow starts flying, I pull out all the berries I froze during the summer when I was too busy to can, and make all kinds of things!

    I just learned to can this year from my wonderful mom! As a new “canner” I would love to try to can some apple pie in a jar, apple jam, or pear jam for fall.

    I would use them to make gifts of mustard and pear ginger jam for the holidays. They are so versatile!

    I am getting back to canning…helped my mom and granny when I was small…but got away from it myself until now. Getting back to my childhood roots, I guess. And for self-preservation….
    I am now following you all on FB and Pinterest. Looking forward to it all.
    thanks.

    My favorite thing to can this winter is going to be sweet potatoes and winter squash. My husband and I have developed a taste for all things mashed, and pressure canning them will make it so easy to mash and serve. Then, I’ll be doing apple pie filling, and finally I’ll be making wild grape jelly from juice that I froze this summer.

    I am a snowbird.
    I do some canning in Florida during the winter. I also can at home in the summer.
    I have won a couple of ribbons at the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto for my pickles and green relish.
    Love to read all about canning.
    Started with my children from the backyard garden many years ago
