Twitter Party with SPC & Bernardin for #jarsfromthestars on June 11th

We're always up to a lot of excit­ing things over here at SPC. Aside from eat­ing our way through our recipe test­ing (I may even have a mouth full of a new, yet-to-be-posted berry almond scone right now. Hey, some­ones got to do it!), we're also get­ting ready for Ontario's straw­berry and blue­berry sea­sons. I can't wait to get up to my cot­tage to start pick­ing berries at the local farm. If you're a reg­u­lar reader of this site you now I tend to get a lit­tle crazy this time of year when it comes to fresh berries. My daugh­ter gets tired of being dragged up the street each day for a pick­ing field trip but I love hav­ing lots of fresh berries for bak­ing, freez­ing and mak­ing my own pre­serves. A few years ago I learned from our friends how sim­ple pre­serv­ing can be so now I love to make my own jams. It's my way of ensur­ing we have local berries all year long. And since SPC loves sea­sonal cook­ing, we have no short­age of berry recipes on the site from four years of glut­to­nous sum­mer eat­ing includ­ing baked french toast, pop­si­cles, yogurt cake, stuffed French toast, fruit salad, crostata and more.

We're also thrilled to be host­ing a Twit­ter party on Wednes­day, June 11, 2014 with our pre­serv­ing friends over at Bernardin. The over 100 year old Cana­dian brand known for its can­ning jars and tools has asked SPC to par­tic­i­pate in a great event known as #jars­fromthes­tars. Of course we jumped right in.

Bernardin asked 50 Cana­dian per­son­al­i­ties to fill a lim­ited edi­tion retro, green glass mason jar with any­thing they'd like and, to be hon­est, I can't wait to see what par­tic­i­pants like Chefs Lynn Craw­ford and Susur Lee as well as Jian Gomeshi and Mar­i­lyn Den­nis decided to tuck into their jars. 100 % of the pro­ceeds will sup­port the Com­mu­nity Food Cen­tres Canada (CFCC), a place where peo­ple come together to grow, cook, share and advo­cate for good food. The jars will go up for auc­tion on eBay start­ing on Mon­day, June 16th, 2014. How­ever, you can find out the scoop about the #jars­fromthes­tars and what's inside dur­ing our Twit­ter party on Wednes­day, June 11th, 2014 from 9:00 pm — 10:00pm East­ern time. You'll also be able to get tips for safe can­ning and pre­serv­ing, recipes as well as prizes.

So please join us Wednes­day, June 11, 2014 for this spe­cial Twit­ter event and use the hash­tag #jars­fromthes­tars. Don't worry, you can par­tic­i­pate by just hang­ing out on your couch, in your PJ's, eat­ing tor­tilla chips. Oh, sorry. I had you con­fused with Ceri. It's how she'll be tun­ing in for the party. So, in other words, the dress-code is can­ning casual.

In order to be sure you don't miss out, you'll want to con­nect with us on Twit­ter via @spchronicles as well as @Bernardin.

You'll also need to RSVP below to be eli­gi­ble for the party.
