Update: Huge thanks to Marisa for coming to our humble abode and hanging out to talk canning. She answered many of the questions, and we will answer the remainder as replies to the comments on this post. She's a busy gal, though, heading to LA for the remainder of her West Coast book tour, so please allow us some time.
Congratulations to our winners! We had 42 comments and 54 tweets/pins. Amazingly, the random number generator chose comment #1, so kudos to Nomnivorous! And of the pooled tweets and pins, the lucky number is 21, a tweet by user @ourgirl. Congrats to you both!
Food in Jars. It's a much-loved blog on canning and all other manner of jarred goodness. And now, it's a book that's got us all popping our lids. People are talking about it. People are cooking from it. And believe you me, you want it. And you can get it.
Marisa is gracefully taking some time out of her very busy book tour schedule to stop by Punk Domestics World Headquarters, and we'll be streaming live on Saturday, June 23, at 11 am PDT to answer your questions.
The best part? I have two -- that's right two -- copies of Food in Jars to give away to two lucky recipients out there. If you're really lucky, maybe I can even get her to sign them. Here's how you can win:

Then, on Saturday morning at 11 am PDT, we'll post a link to the live stream (you do "like" us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter so you can get all the latest buzz, right?) where you can tune in and watch Marisa answer your questions, moderated by yours truly. At the end, we'll announce the winners. How much fun is that?
But wait, do you want even more ways to win a copy? Hop on over to Local Kitchen and the Hip Girl's Guide to Homemaking, both of whom are hosting giveaways of their own. What can we say?
