About

I’m Kathy also known as Kanning Kathy. I am a connoisseur of all things delicious. From ginger peach jams, flavored salts, margarita cupcakes, my passion is to create treats from my kitchen.  Many of my creations have received ribbons and awards in local and regional competitions.

When I am not in my kitchen working on new recipes, you can find me at the weekly, local Farmer’s Market. It is incredibly important to know where our foods comes from, so I spend a lot of time getting to know and working closely with my farmers. They are a wealth of information and often help to inspire my new recipes. 

Not only do I love sharing the treats I make but also the skills I’ve learned in the kitchen. I teach canning, baking and cooking classes to anyone from my local 4H chapter to my grandchildren.

Frequently Asked Questions

WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR INGREDIENTS?

The produce used in my products are locally sourced from growers within a hundred mile radius of my kitchen in Roseville, Ca. I work closely with my suppliers to make certain that when you enjoy one of my products you are getting the best and the freshest of ingredients.

WHAT IS PECTIN AND WHY IS IT USED?

Pectin is a starch that occurs naturally in the cell walls of fruits and vegetables. When cooked at a high temperature in combination with acid and sugar, it forms a gel. This is what gives jams and jellies their consistency when they cool. Pectin can be used in other dishes that require food to gel or thicken. It's also used as a fat substitute in some baked goods.
