Ball Canning Book Giveaway

Tuesday, July 19, 2016

This Friday, July 22nd is the 6th annual Can-It-Forward Day. Perfect timing for a giveaway of the following goodies from Ball Jars. These are all great things to help you either get started with canning and preserving or,if you're already a dyed-in-the-wool food preserver, to help you take your preserving efforts up yet another notch.

1. The All New Ball Book of Canning and Preserving:  A newly updated version of their iconic canning cookbook with more than 200 recipes - everything from jams and jellies to jerkies, pickles, salsas and more. I have a copy of both this version and the older one and love them both.


2. A case of Ball's special collection wide mouth blue pint jars: For the first time, the Ball® brand has introduced a line of retro blue glass jars. Kinda fun, eh?

3. One $5 off coupon to be used on whatever you need from Ball's online store - www.FreshPreservingStore.com. Free money!

Entering is easy -- just leave a comment on this post telling me your name, email and what your favorite thing to preserve is before midnight on Friday, July 22nd. Don't feel you have to limit yourself to canning - there's also drying, freezing and infusing!

I love to can tomatoes.

I make a jam that is Blackberries (say 6 pints)/Lemon Juice & Zests/Turbinado Sugar/One entire Vanilla Bean Pod + Pectin; that is fantastic actually. I scrape out the vanilla seeds but also put the pods in with the fruit while I cook it (then fish them back out!). People freak over this.

I probably can more applesauce than anything else, but my favourite thing to preserve is red currant jam. I love the tartness, the colour and how easy it is to make. It's great on toast and I prefer it to cranberry sauce when it comes time for turkey dinner.

We froze tomatoes last year and used them in stews all winter long, it was lovely.

I love preserving apples in all sorts of ways--applesauce, apple butter, apple jelly, spiced apples, apple pie filling, pretty much any way I can get them into jars.

My favorite thing to can is tomato puree, bar none. It always gets eaten before the next summer rolls around. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity! hampiesandwiches at gmail

I haven't canned yet but I do freeze seasonal fruit to use in smoothies. I freeze them on a cookie sheet and then store in canning jar I. The freezer.

I second salsa! There's just something so great in opening a jar in the dead of winter and indulging in summer's fresh produce. So yum!

I can
apricot jam. My friend has 7 big old mature apricot trees and she lets us come over and pick to our heart's desire. We picked over 15 gallons of organic apricots and made 30 jars of jam and froze 14 pies worth of fillings. Happiness is knowing you're stocked up on apricot jam and apricot pies!
