National Can-it-Forward Day + Ball Jar Giveaway

Canning

I’ve been canning up a storm in Cooperstown this month with my Dad. As I’ve outlined before, we love canning fruits and vegetables each summer. It is a time for us to bond, plus we get to reap the rewards all winter long. I also give a lot of the preserves we make away for holiday gifts. I am excited to work with my friends at Ball Jar for the second year in a row to celebrate International Can-It-Forward Day. It is coming up this Saturday August 16th and you don’t want to miss it if you are a canning enthusiastic, or a novice who is eager to learn.

To participate in the festivities check out this great roster of events. There are so many things to check out! I can’t wait to see the mosaic once it is finished.

Fresh Herb Keeper

This year Ball Jar has come out with some interesting products that are key for preserving herbs. They are perfect for me because I spend all summer growing herbs and am constantly cutting them to keep in the kitchen while I cook. I also love to make a variety of pestos and freeze them for winter. I am so glad to finally have products that make it easy to take care of and store herbs.
