We’re at the start of a new month and so it’s time to thank the people who help support this blog through sponsorship! Please do show them your love if you have a chance.

Back in the top spot are our friends at Cuppow. They are 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. Also among their products is the CoffeeSock Cold Brew Kit, which is the perfect way to keep cool as the summer heats up!

After some time away, our friends over at EcoJarz are back on the sponsorship rolls. They make an array of products designed to fit on top of mason jars, including a stainless steel shaker ball, a pour-over coffee kit called Dose, a set of grater and slicer lids, and stainless steel storage lids. I also love pairing their stainless steel bands with the Pickle Pipe from Masontops, because they don’t rust or corrode.

Lancaster, PA-based and family-owned Fillmore Container are next! They sell all manner of canning jars, lids, and other preservation gear. Right now, they’re offering 10% off all preserving tools if you use the code CANMORE. Oh, and their blog is such a good resource, and just yesterday, they posted news about the changing policies around steam canners.

Our friends at Mrs. Wages are also back. They make 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 mixSign up for their newsletter for monthly installments of canning goodness and keep your eyes peeled, as I’ll have a giveaway from them next week!

Mason Jar Lifestyle is a one-stop shopping site for all the jar lovers out there and they’re celebrating their first year of being in business this week with a giant sale. Now through June 8th, use the code BIRTHDAY20 for 20% off nearly everything in the shop. Additionally, the first 25 orders to use the sale code will also get a free wide mouth silicone drinking lid. I recommend using the sale code to get some of the cork stoppers. I just love them!

If your company or small business is interested in becoming a sponsor, you can find more details here. I offer discounts for multiple month purchases and am always happy to work with your budget. Leave a comment on this post or drop me a note to learn more!

Mason Jar Lifestyle Mother's Day Mother's Day Coffee Gift Set - Food in Jars

We’re at the start of a new month and so it’s time to thank the people who help support this blog through sponsorship! Please do show them your love if you have a chance.

Back in the top spot are our friends at Cuppow. They are 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. I feel like summer is prime Cuppow season, because it’s the perfect thing for no-waste iced drinks, so get yours dusted off!

The folks at Masontops joined the sponsorship roster this month. They sell an array of jar accessories, including Chalk Tops, Pickle Pebbles, the Pickle Packer, and (my favorite), the Pickle Pipe. If you’re looking to get into fermentation in a way that is easy and foolproof, make sure to check out their gear.

Lancaster, PA-based and family-owned Fillmore Container are next! They sell all manner of canning jars, lids, and other preservation gear. They posted a really terrific piece recently, featuring conversations with a number of canning bloggers, writers, and educators in which those folks share what canning means to them.

Harvest Right is back this month. They make freeze dryers for home use. Previously, it could cost as much as $30,000 to get freeze dryer, but the ones that Harvest Right sells are are 1/10 of that price. I don’t have space for one in my home, but I so wish that I did!

Our friends at Mrs. Wages are back for another season. They make 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 mixSign up for their newsletter for monthly installments of canning goodness.

Mason Jar Lifestyle is a one-stop shopping site for all the jar lovers out there! They sell all manner of mason jar accessories and adaptors. I recently had a chance to try out their cork jar stoppers and have become totally obsessed. It’s the perfect way to use mason jars for easy access storage. I’ve got a small tower of finishing salts in wide mouth half pints next to my stove, closed with these corks. Seriously, I love them. (And don’t forget about their Mother’s Day Coffee Gift Set!)

Links: Beyond Canning, Compound Butters, and Winners

Happy Easter, friends! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful weekend. We’ve had a busy one, cleaning out Scott’s mom’s apartment and making space in our little apartment for some of her things. It’s also my last weekend at home before I hit the road for my west coast book tour, so I’ve been trying to squeeze in some errands before I leave. It’s been busy! Now, links!

Giveaway: Round Collection Elite Jam Jars (sponsored by Fillmore Container)

Round Jam Jars Tower Fillmore - Food in Jars

Happy March 22, everyone! For most of you, this is just another ordinary Tuesday, but for me, it’s the official publication day for my new book-baby, Naturally Sweet Food in Jars (I know, it’s been shipping for the last two weeks. But now, there’s no denying it. The book is out there).

In celebration, I’ve teamed up with my friends at Fillmore Container for a little pub day giveaway. I’m hosting a giveaway over here and they’re also hosting another giveaway over on their blog (along with a sneak peek at one of the recipes from the new book).

Three Round Jam Jars Fillmore - Food in Jars

Last week, when I gave away that giant bundle of Ball Canning gear, many of you mentioned how happy you were to see that they’d brought back the classic, rounded half pint jam jar. These fruit embossed jars are often a favorite with long-time canners and it was popular demand that’s brought them back into production.

I had a feeling that these jars would tickle your collective fancy and so when Fillmore asked me what I thought my giveaway should include, I just knew that these were the ones to feature.

Round Jam Jars Fillmore - Food in Jars

These round jam jars hold 8 ounces and are the perfect vessel for jams, relishes, chutneys, and truly any preserve that you want to dress up a little bit more. This week, I have three boxes of these jars to give away to three winners (each box contains four jars). Over on the Fillmore Container blog, one lucky winner will get a copy of my new book, 2 cases of Orchard Road (both pints and half pints), a case of fruited jam jars, 2 Storage iLIDS, 2 reCap Flip Caps, 2 Packs of Pomona’s Pectin. It’s quite a prize package!

Here’s how to enter my end of the giveaway:

  1. Leave a comment on this post and tell me what your favorite preserve of 2015 was.
  2. Comments will close at 11:59 pm eastern time on Saturday, March 26, 2016. A winner will be chosen at random and will be posted to the blog on Sunday, March 27, 2016.
