Pickle Heaven

Love pickles? We sure do.

While we're cleaning out our pantries to make room for a new season's stockpile of canning jars, we're celebrating at this Saturday's Joseph farmer's market with a Best of 2008 Pickle and Jam Tasting.

If you've got some of your own blue-ribbon-worthy pickles or jams to contribute, bring 'em on down. Or just come with your palate cleansed and ready to sample a host of succulent and creative offerings.

It will offer all the inspiration you need to kick off another canning season.

Oh, didn't you know? Canning is all the rage. Just check out this article in the recent Dining section of The New York Times. Who knew we in Wallowa County were so very hip?
