GHE Flies in an Expert to Preserve the Season

Green Home Experts rescues drought-laden garden bounty with help from celebrity canning blogger and author, Marisa McClellan.
Aug. 1, 2012 - PRLog -- This year’s hot and very dry season has taken a toll on our much anticipated garden bounty. Never fear, Oak Park, IL-based Green Home Experts has lined up award-winning canning blogger and author, Marisa McClellan, to share her secrets with local canners on how to rescue the sparse treasures from this year’s dreaded drought.

Choosing a recipe from her June 2012 popular book, Food in Jars: Preserving in Small Batches Year-Round, Marisa will inspire all, from the novice to the seasoned veteran.  Her canning class is scheduled for Sunday, August 26th, 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. at Green Home Experts, 811 South Blvd., Oak Park, IL 60302.

“We are thrilled and honored to have Marisa McClellan join us.  When you think of all the canning experts, she’s definitely one of the top-of-the-list names,” commented GHE owner Maria Onesto Moran.

Following the class, 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., GHE will host a book signing and meet and greet for Marisa.  Her Food in Jars book is available now at GHE for $23 while supplies last.

Tickets for the canning class are $40 and include a jar of the morning’s freshly canned delight. Seats are limited, so contact GHE today to reserve your spot, 708.660.1443.  Attendance at the book signing is free.

About Marisa McClellan -- Marisa grew up in Oregon, where she learned to can local blueberries, blackberries and apples from her mother.  A move across the country came between her and her canning pot, but a fortuitous blueberry picking expedition with a friend in 2006 reawakened her passion, and she has been canning and preserving ever since, blogging about it on Food in Jars, one of the Internet’s most popular and enduring canning blogs, which was selected as one of Saveur magazine’s “Sites We Love” in 2011.  For more information on Marisa McClellan or Food in Jars, please visit
