Happy Birthday Nicolas Appert

Of vineyards, tree, and garden sauce, There should never be any loss. If fresh picked and quickly canned, When winter comes it will be in demand. Collin Class Cookery 1931

Today is the birthdate of Nicolas Appert; the reputed "Father of Canning."

Thanks for dropping by Emily. I too like that quote. Now, I'm off to take a gander at that Deep-Dish Caramel Apple Pie of yours. Yum!

Hi Ken,
Thanks for the kind words. I plan on updating this blog more often come the new year. I spend most of my time now at my other blog, Months of Edible Celebrations.

I'll be "popping" by your blog more often also. It's such fun to visit and I'm still dreaming about Duck:)
