--- Fixed the Club interaction

1. Excluded the traits - Evil and materialistic from the Embarrased 'Sold to Corporation ' Buff
2. Fixed the 'Sold to Evil corporation ' Interaction and Parsnip Pickles

- Added Onion requirement to Chili pickles
- Added Herb requirement to Green Chili Spread

4. Added 15 new preserves and 8 new buffs

3. Salmon Spread
4. Heart Jam
5. Mango Jam
6. Mango Pickles
7. Mango Chutney

5. Added Ingredient Optional Packages for the preserves - Ingredient requirement for preserve making is optional

Choose Ingredient Optional version if you want the sims to be able to make the preserves without the specific ingredient in their inventory. ( If you want the preserves to always require inventory simply choose icemunmun_Canning_Preserves_EA and icemunmun_Canning_Preserves_Custom ).Do not put both icemunmun_Canning_Preserves_EA and icemunmun_Canning_Preserves_EA_IngredientOptional in your game. Choose only one. Same for the custom ingredient preserve.

Hahaha... I just had my Sim start to bake brownies. After he mixed them, he went outside, flipped the CANNING station on its belly... puts stuff into it, *sound of oven closing*, canning station flips back into upright position and Sim walks happily back into the house.

Can I make a request? Would love it if you could make a harvestable peanut plant and then make peanut butter on the canning station. Can think of so many recipes that can use peanut butter!

The Canning Station belongs to the stove object class so occasionally the sims would do this inspite of my blocking this interaction and inspite of a perfectly good stove present right beside them

First a big thanks for great cc. Love this mod so much but I no longer have the option to "sell to evil corporation". I noticed you said you were doing an update so wondered if that option was to be added back?

Hi! You this will happen if have both icemunmun_Canning_Preserves_EA and icemunmun_Canning_Preserves_EA_IngredientOptional in your game. Choose only one. Same for the custom ingredient preserve. You should choose Ingredient Optional version if you want the sims to be able to make the preserves without the specific ingredient in their inventory. ( if you want the preserves to always require inventory simply choose icemunmun_Canning_Preserves_EA and icemunmun_Canning_Preserves_Custom ).

Haha, haven't you heard of recycling? Obviously half of the cost of your preserves goes to pay for the glass jars. I am so going to cheat and sell my empty jars (to the recycling centre, of course).
