Canning Tomatoes: Industrious Food Bloggers Save For The Winter

Posted By on Fri, Sep 14, 2007 at 3:00 PM


Unlike us, many people have the foresight and skills to cook at home, and the most ambitious among them even grow their own produce. Not only that, but a select few of these overachievers even have time to blog about it. And now that the salad days of summer are drawing to a close, many food bloggers -- like the industrious ant in the Aesop Fable -- are busy storing food for the long, cold winter to come, while grasshoppers like us are content hopping about chirping and singing.

Canning all those beautiful summer tomatoes before they rot on the vine is the subject of the day, and judging by the sheer number of posts about it, there's plenty to know. So all you ants, get to it, because someday in the near future a tired, hungry grasshopper could hop onto your doorstep looking for a handout.

    • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
      Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
