What do you think these three ladies have in common, besides being related to me?
Top most is my grandmother, Lois. Bottom left is my mother, and to the right is my Aunt Jo. All three women were wise when it came to food storage. They knew how to can a variety of fresh foods, and now I can too thanks to Ball’s canning supplies and equipment!
When Kelsey contacted me asking if I’d like to join them on Saturday, August 17th for National Can-It-Forward Day, I jumped at the chance to learn such a valuable skill as canning. After all, that’s how my grandmother, mother and aunt fed their families on limited grocery budgets. Now I’m going to learn how to can my favorite farmers market finds so I can add myself to this amazing group of women.
Stay tuned next week. I plan to use my Ball Blue Book Guide to Preserving to make their Herb Garden Marmalade with summer fresh tomatoes, basil and garlic. Sounds great, doesn’t it?
I mentioned a giveaway, didn’t I?
Ball is ready to send you their Ball Canning Discovery Kit so you can save money and enjoy the benefits of freshly canned food too.
I have one kit to give away, but they also sent me copies of their Blue Book Guide to Preserving, so I’ll happily send four additional readers this useful resource of canning instructions, tips, and unique recipes.
Leave a comment, then on August 19th Mr. Rimmy will pick from the list of comments one lucky winner of the Discovery Kit, and four lucky winners of the Blue Book Guide.
Don’t forget to watch the live webcast of National Can-It-Forward Day!! You can also participate via Twitter using the hashtag #canitforward and following @BallCanning.
Good luck, and happy canning!
