Andrea Chesman on canning

Ripton resident Andrea Chesman appears in the Burlington Free Press today, in an article about canning food:

Andrea Chesman, of Ripton, is a longtime canner, a cookbook editor and
author. She has noticed a resurgence in home preserving during the last few
years. Her first book, “Pickles and Relishes, 150 Recipes from Apple to
Zucchini,” was published in 1983; she is working on a revised edition, expected
out in 2011. Chesman moved to Vermont from upstate New York in the 1970s during
the “whole back to the land thing.” She said her interest in canning and
preservation was greeted with great amusement by neighboring farmers’ wives:
“They got a big kick out of us.”
