coming up with a name. or how my friends make me laugh.

in canning classes
Sep 13th

Here I am with my very new venture. My very new blog. My very new name. Can we take a moment to discuss names? I reached out to a handful of friends when I was searching for a good name. I wanted it to refer to food preservation and I thought it would be neat if it gave a nod to my Florida locale. In the Jar was an early favorite, but I worried that it was too similar to Food in Jars. Jars of Sunshine was in for the win, but then the dissenting voices started clamoring. Perhaps my favorite came from my friend, Heather, who suggested Putting Up with Lisa. So many opinions! And not one but two references to Portlandia’s pickling episode. Alas, here we are with Sunshine Canning, a Florida-based food preservation blog. Welcome!
And for a laugh:
