Have you run out of marmalade prepared the way Grandma used to make it?

Thick and tart, using Seville oranges? If so, then come to the Farmers Market in Creemore, Ontario on Saturday morning August 6 (9.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m.) and pick up a free jar of “Pete’s Marmalade” along with an autographed copy of T.A. Keenleyside’s Roaming the Big Land: Flavours of Canada. In the afternoon, he’ll be signing books at Curiosity House Books and giving away marmalade (if there is any left) or mustard, both made from old Ontario recipes that are reproduced in this entertaining and informative book that probes the essential character of every province and territory in Canada.

Can’t make it to Creemore? Then, why not buy a copy of the book from the publisher’s website: www.penumbrapress.com/book.php?id=312.

Book retailers and libraries, please order the book by contacting the publisher directly: john@penumbrapress.ca.
