Hi Ms Fuller,

I am in Woodstock, NY and a fan of yours for the last 2 years – I am glad that your show has been picked up for a third season.

I have two questions for you:

1. Will you ever do a show on canning? I think it is coming back “in style”. I love to can and do jelly’s.

2. I have a recipe from a friend “Beet Jelly” – however – when I make it – it never jels. Wondering if I could have you help me figure out why.

I have sent this question to other Food network chefs but have not had a reply. Hoping you can help.

Thank you in advance for any advice.
