It’s the first of July and that means that it is time to thank those companies who help sustain this blog. Truly, I couldn’t do it without their support. If you appreciate them as much as I do, please follow a link or two and show them that you care.
Cuppow is the creator of the original mason jar travel mug topper and the BNTO, a small plastic cup that transforms a canning jar into a snack or lunch box. They also recently expanded their product line to include branded jar coozie and they’ve teamed up with the EIO Kids Cup folks to bring the manufacturing of that kids drinking system onto US soil. I’ve been particularly digging their Cuppow in the Wild Pinterest board lately.
iLids is a Seattle-based small business that makes both storage and drink lids in both regular and wide mouth sizes for mason jars. Their storage lids are water tight and the drink lids can accommodate a straw. I love how many colors their lids come in!
Fillmore Container is a family-owned business based in Lancaster, PA and sells all manner of canning jars, lids, and other preservation gear. They recently started carrying my beloved 4th Burner Pot, which pleases me to no end.
MightyNest is an amazing resource for non-toxic, natural, and organic products for homes and families. We’re partnering on a fun tutorial and giveaway later this month, focused on preserving fruit slices without any refined sugar, so stay tuned for that.
Mrs. Wages makes pectin, vinegar, and more canning mixes than I can count. Their website is an incredible preserving resource and I can’t say enough good things about their salsa mix. Make sure to sign up for their newsletter for monthly installments of canning goodness.
Fermentools offers a brilliant fermentation starter kit that involves a heavy-duty glass pickling weight, an airlock, a lid with a reusable rubber seal, and mineral-rich salt. Get one (or several!) to help turn your CSA goodies into naturally fermented pickles.
Orchard Road makes mason jars, lids, and rings for home canners. Now in their second year of business, you should be seeing their jars in more physical stores. If you’re not finding them out online store is now open for business, so you can now order them straight from the source.
Preserving Now is a small business based in Atlanta, Georgia run by Lyn Deardorff. This summer, in addition to teaching her regular Canning Immersion Classes, Lyn has added a Summer Preserving Series at Serenbe in Atlanta and Nashville. Each class in the series features both a seasonal fruit preserve and a pickle or relish.
