It is June! It’s time to start looking forward to local cherries and to say thanks to the companies that help make it possible for me to write blog posts, answer questions, try out new products, and generally invest the bulk of my waking hours to this site. Please shower them with your love (and your dollars)!
First up is perennial Food in Jars favorite, jar accessory maker Cuppow! They are the creator of the original mason jar travel mug topper and, more recently, of the BNTO, a cup that fits into a wide mouth mason jar and transforms it into a lunch box. Now that the days have gotten warmer, I drink a lot of iced coffee and find myself reaching for a wide mouth cuppow nearly every day so that I can drink from a pint and a half jar without worrying about spills.
New to the official sponsorship rolls this month is MightyNest. They sponsored last week’s amazing giveaway (which is still open for entries until tomorrow) are one of the best resources around for non-toxic, natural, and organic products for homes and families.
Next comes our friends at Fillmore Container. They sell all manner of canning jars and lids, as well as a handful of books and jar accessories. They’re a family-owned business based in Lancaster, PA and they happily work with home canners and commercial producers alike. Visit their blog for lots of good canning tricks and tips.
Mrs. Wages is also back for another month of canning goodness! I’ve written for them for the last three summers and this year, we’re teaming up for an official partnership. They make all sorts of pectins and canning mixes. Make sure to sign up for their newsletter for monthly installments of canning goodness.
Last, but certainly not least is Preserving Now! Operated by Lyn Deardorff, Preserving Now is both a website and school dedicated to helping people expand their canning and preserving skills. If you’re in the Atlanta area, make sure to check out her schedule of upcoming classes and events!
