From the archives: Irene Moore of Jackson County, #KY displays a selection of her canned goods at the 1997 Kentucky Folklife Festival. Canning has been an important mode of food preservation for many of Kentucky’s people, and it continues to be a vibrant tradition today. To read the poem “Canning Memories” by Frank X Walker, visit the Southern Foodways Alliance website.
