We’re a pretty satisfied bunch, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t covetous. Sometimes we see things out there that we just must have. Cool Things We Want is an archive of those earthly desires.
Canning is one of those things that I always think I’ll get to but never do. Thank goodness Livia Bakery is more organized than I am. The popular Commercial Drive shop is just about to release a sweet line-up of summer deliciousness that includes canned sour cherries, blackberries and huckleberries. I’ll definitely grab some for now (blackberries over ice cream? Yes, please!) but I’m also planning to snag a few jars for later. There’s nothing quite like cracking the top of some sweet preserves in the middle of winter. If you close your eyes you can almost taste the summer.
