It was SO exciting to embark on this “canning and crafting” extravaganza!!! We hit the open road in our vintage 1959 Oasis Trailer, through the picturesque Hood River/Columbia Gorge Fruit Loop Trail, this past Fall. We happily hopped from farm to farm gathering the late summers bounty. Farmgirls across the nation had sent us traditional family Farmhouse Kitchen Recipes. So we got to work freshly picking, peeling and slicing our gathered harvest into Ball jars, creating wonderful works of edible art. Ball Canning became a household name starting in the late 1800’s. They continued to popularize food preservation after WWII by publishing the Ball Blue Book Guide to Preserving, which is now in its 37th Edition with over 500 recipes. Their plum jam recipe is tried and true. It made its debut using a bucket of plums we sacredly picked from a 100 year old plum tree. We encourage everyone to learn the time-honored traditional skill of canning. By celebrating the old-fashioned Farm Pantry and stocking its shelves together we collectively keep tradition and culture alive. There’s nothing more beautiful than a well stocked pantry meant to nourish family and friends through a long, cold winter. Do you can? What is your favorite recipe?

Our inaugural Pie-Way Tour was EPIC! Baking pies out of our 1959 Vintage Oasis trailer and gathering farm traditions as we visited the cranberry bogs of the Oregon Coast, fruit orchards of the Columbia River Gorge, grain fields of the Palouse, and ranches in the Wallowa’s. The next road trip starts in the Spring of 2019 taking us along the Pacific Coast of Oregon and California all the way to Big Sur! Be sure to sign up for our newsletter and follow us on social media for our pie-making extravaganza. Thank you for your support!
