Local food blogger Matt Lardie, author of greeneatsblog, has organized the Second Annual Triangle Canning Swap for Aug. 19.
If you start now, you have plenty of time to can some goodies to swap with your fellow canners at Durham's Fullsteam Brewery next month. Here's how it works: bring five jars of homemade jam, jelly, chutney, salsa, preserves or pickles. Bring copies of your recipes to share if you like. Names will be dropped in a hat and chosen at random, and the swaps will occur until everyone has their five jars. The fun starts at 3 p.m.
To sign up, go to the Facebook page for the Second Annual Triangle Canning Swap.

I canned 20+ jars of old-fashioned pickles this weekend so I'm all set and ready to swap. (See photo above.) See you there.
