I spent today exploring the Fancy Food Show in New York, checking out all the delicious snacks, cheeses, jams and chocolates that will be hitting stores in the coming months. This left me little time for kitchen tasks or the application of brain to writing tasks. However, I plan on having a few choice goodies to share with you tomorrow, as well as more information about making fruit butters in a slow cooker later in the week.
In the meantime, I thought it’d be fun to do a little giveaway. What I have here is a new kit from the creative folks over at Ball. Called the Home Canning Discovery Kit, this little set makes it easy for the first time canner to create a batch of jam or salsa without buying any new equipment, save what’s in the box. It comes with three pint jars, a recipe booklet and the nifty green basket (for processing and lifting your filled jars) you see above. I think it’s pretty cool, and would make a really good gift for someone who’s been talking about canning but haven’t actually given it a try yet.
If you want a chance to win this kit, leave a comment on this post. The giveaway ends this Friday, July 2nd at 11:59 p.m.
