Canning Part Deux

Debbie and I took our second canning class in Alameda yesterday. It was at the same Marketplace as the last class but with a different instructor. A little different vibe this time, but we still earned a lot and had fun at the same time.
Here are some photos from our class:
After class we went to Burma Superstar for lunch and had tea leaf salad and super star noodles which was fabulous! They make the best ginger lemonade there which was nice on a warm sunny afternoon.
After lunch, we went to a HUGE antique store (3 floors) and I spotted this gem...a Detroit Jewel!I found the most interesting leather pocket notebook from a man in 1910-1912, I had to have it at $3, I read the entire thing last night. I will post about that later this week. It was a wonderful day in Alameda. When we were done we went back to Debbie's house and I got to pick some wonderful organic veggies from their garden! All together I took home some Swiss chard, carrots, green beans, squash, cucumbers and flat leaf parsley. Thank you Debbie and Steve for sharing your garden with me!
I love a nice Saturday out knowing there is still one more day left in the weekend.

fun! you always find and do the coolest stuff! any canning tips appreciated, by the way... and what did you end up doing with the swiss chard? we have it literally growing out of our ears (12 plants that all succeeded - every time you pluck off some leaves, new ones sprout out - i'm so sick of it, but know the greens are good for me. i'd kill for some kale or collards right about now...)they boil it here in nz and load it with butter (ick on both accounts)...
