Illustration Friday--"Canned"

"It is a thrill to possess shelves well stocked with home-canned food.
In fact, you will find their inspection--often surreptitious--and the
pleasure of serving the fruits of your labor comparable only to a
clear conscience or a very becoming hat." ~Joy of Cooking 1931

I have always loved this passage from my favorite cookbook. I thought of it immediately, but had a hard time finding a reference for the hat. This is just the glorified sketch from my sketchbook, but I hope to do something with it---maybe watercolor.
