With canning and preserving so in vogue, I love the idea of hosting a canning party! If everyone brings a different recipe along with the fruits or vegetables for it, just think of all the delicious home preserved goodies you could take home!
Pick Your Own is a fantastic resource for learning how to can pretty much anything.

The National Center for Home Food Preservation is another great resource with plenty of safety tips and recipes.
