These days, canning and preserving food is all the rage. You can attend classes to learn how to do it. You can even buy beautiful cookbooks that specifically focus on the subject. And local blogger Marisa McClellan runs Food in Jars, the blog to visit for recipes and tips on canning.
But what’s next in the world of preserving food, pickling veggies, and preparing jams? Luckily for us, McClellan plans to stay ahead of the trends.
“People love eating food out of jars. There, the food is preserved and lasts. The only next step, is food out of cars. Or possibly bags,” said McClellan in a totally real interview that totally happened. “That’s why I’m launching Food in Cars, a blog that will specialize in highlighting food people store in the backseats of their vehicles.”
That’s right, Food in Cars. Skeptical, I reached out to some total professionals to get some more on the subject.
“Cars are actually remarkable storage containers for food,” said local foodie and social media addict Mikey Il, as he showed off the backseat of his Audi. “Some of these discarded White Castle hamburgers and french fries have sat here, in the back of my car, preserved for years.”
When asked her thoughts on the movement and Mikey’s preserved car food, Allie Harcharek, Mikey’s fiance, said “stop asking me questions and help me clean out this car!” She then threw a perfectly preserved 3 year old banh mi sandwich at us, as Mikey protested its freshness.
