Ball Canning...Giveaway

Over the past few years canning has become
 something I really enjoy,
not just because we love to have
 fresh veggies preserved for later ....
It's now a hobby that I look forward to each summer/fall :)

I put together a starter kit for canning,
minus the jars and canner, as that would be a bit
pricey and hard to ship ;)


*Blue Ball Book -guide to preserving
*Ball-Utensil Set for Preserving
*Ball-Dissolvable Labels
*Strawberry Gift Tags, for fun :)
If, you are new to canning it's not hard at all!
There are several things I enjoy about canning, 
the first thing is at end of the day you have
 healthy yummy food stored up for later use.
Second would be the great satisfaction in the days work that was accomplished, last is my favorite part about canning....
The time spent in fellowship with those who came along side that day to help, definitely sweet times with memories made. 
How to Enter the Giveaway:
~The rules are simple, you can enter 2 ways~
* Leave a comment with your name and let us know if you have ever canned before
* Blog about this giveaway and let us know you did :)
Giveaway will close midnight TONIGHT!

Hello my friend!
I love to can produce. I skipped last summer and cuddled my Caleb, but I'm excited about getting as many tomatoes out of my garden as I can and preserve them. I've also had a few requests for strawberry jam. :)

Canning is on my want to learn to do list. ;-)

Rebecca C. Fowler said...

Oh wow, I am so excited about this one! We are just getting pretty big into gardening and my husband and I were discussing the need to start canning. We have never canned before but will soon start!

Please enter the Fowler family :-)!

Boy you have to be quick to join in this giveaway. Good thing I check in with you daily ;-)

Last year Garrett's yard had pear trees. Yes free pears ALL summer long. We canned a bunch. My girls were so tired of peeling by the time we were all done but they sure enjoyed the yummy pears on those cool fall days.

Hey I just had an idea. Lets can together this year :-) haha! We really need to be neighbors, don't we?!!

love you dear friend~ Cinnamon

Thanks for the giveaway. I will like to participate the giveaway. Its funny is that I am in the process of learning about canning right now....researching, reading... I bought some supplies and missing other supplies.

I wonder should I can tomato first or berries jams.

Deb said...

I have never canned! Can you believe it?! My daughter has though...quite a bit. This is a real turn-about, but when she leaves home, she'll have to teach her mom all about canning! Isn't it usually the other way around? LOL!

Nikki said...

I blogged about your giveaway. :)Thanks again friend!!

Kelly said...

Hey.... enter me please. I grew up helping my Mom and Grandmother can... now I am getting back into it :) Such fun.

I really don't want to learn to can but I know it is a good thing because you do not have to depend on electricity to preserve your food. So you don't have to enter me. I just wanted to say hello though cuz I love you all!

Nichole Contente said...

Hello! It's 11:04 here in California, I hope that counts :) I began canning last summer with a group of ladies from church. This summer, I am planning on doing it with my two older children & the littles if they want to help out. My name is Nichole Contente & my email is Nichole.contente@sbcglobal.net! Thank you!

Thanks for the great giveaway! My daughters and I are wanting to can this summer and just got dirt delivered yesterday to start our garden. We're I'm Alabama and its been so rainy that we haven't got to plant anything, plus I have a newborn so that makes number 7 for me and my husbands. In hoping the saying about lots of hands make for less work, applies to the garden and that it will be manageable with all of us working together. All that did to say please enter me. These things are on our list of things to purchase so this would be awesome.

Just wanted to let you know that I was not able to enter, as I am an email subscriber, and the email did not come through til 4:30 am this morning, so giveaway was already closed. :-(. Just thought you might be interested in that info that email subscribers get things later, so that giveaway was too quick for some of us. :-)
