Once you've seen a leaffooted bug (genus Leptoglossus), you'll never forget it. If you look...

Sadly, I missed the event, but fellow MFP Karen Hobart was there and took these photos. (Thanks, Karen!) She reports that Chef Miller gave a great demonstration of classic preservation techniques, which included making strawberry jam, fermented dill pickles, and crushed tomatoes.
If you missed Chef Miller's demonstration and you're still wondering what to do with an overabundance of tomatoes from your garden, check out this new resource page on Home Preserving Tomatoes from the National Center for Home Food Preservation.
