July Sponsors: Cuppow, Fillmore Container, MightyNest, Mrs. Wages, & Preserving Now

All set up to demo a small batch of plum jam at the phoenixville farmers market.

It’s the beginning of a new month and so it’s time to shine the spotlight on the companies and organizations that help make it possible for me to do what I do here on this site.

First up is 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. They also have a small stash of signed copies of Preserving by the Pint.

Next is 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.

Our friends at MightyNest are back for July as well. They are an amazing resource for non-toxic, natural, and organic products for homes and families and recently added my beloved 4th Burner Pot to their stock.

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!

If you’d like to be a sponsor, there are lots of spots available, starting at just $75 a month.

A very nice @cuppow display in Northampton!

Pictures from the Pennsylvania Farm Show

crowds

After years spent meaning to go to the Pennsylvania Farm Show, I got to spend two whole days there earlier this week. In between my canning demos and book signings, Scott and I wandered around the show. We ate a vast array of fried foods, gawked at the rows of cattle, and admired the chickens, rabbits, and ducks. The photos below are just some of the ones I took while there. The full set of images can be found here.

fried vegetables

Fried broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, and onion rings, served with a horseradish dipping sauce. One of the most delicious things I’ve eaten in recent memory.

January 6

Such horns!

PA Dairymen's Shake

All milkshakes should be half chocolate and half vanilla.

make way for sliding ducklings

Ducklings are delightful, but they don’t like to go on the slide.

cider lovers

I am most definitely a cider lover.

Fillmore Container!

At the Fillmore Container Preservation Station.

baby bunnies

Baby bunnies!

battered and fried mushrooms

These breaded and fried button mushrooms were delicious!
