Both my mum and my grandma influenced my love for preserving. It would be reductive to describe it as a habit or a hobby; I feel an ancient urge to bottle, can, or preserve whatever the season offers with abundance. It is my personal way to celebrate the passing of seasons: a hymn to seasonality, a respectful homage to the humble produce. Preserving is also one of my favourite way of procrastinating. When I am busy with deadlines and projects, this is when I try to steal time to preserve. Follow me to explore my mum’s pantry and my grandma’s memories, a walk through the best summer preserves, from tomato sauce to blackberry jam.
I’d love to hear from you: Which is your relationship with preserving? Do you have a favourite preserve you usually make during summer? Let me know with a DM on Instagram or an email at email@example.com
