Giveaway: BBQ Sauce Bottles & Store Credit from Fillmore Container

Twelve ounce bbq sauce jars

Happy Monday, friends! I’m doing something a little different with this week’s giveaway. Often, when I have a tutorial or recipe to share that’s part of a giveaway, I put it all together in the same post.

However, things can get a little tangled when people want to ask questions about the information I’m offering when leaving a comment is also how you enter the giveaway. So this week, I’m splitting them apart.

This is the giveaway post. You’ll use the Rafflecopter widget below for a chance to win a dozen of these nifty BBQ sauce jars and lids and the $50 Fillmore Container store credit. To learn how to use these jars and to get the barbecue sauce recipe, visit this post. This division of content will allow me to better answer any questions you guys may have about the jars and the recipe.

I feel like I type some configuration of these words every year, but I can’t quite believe how quickly this summer is flying by. How is tomorrow August? Rather than wax poetic about the passage of time, I’m just going to dig into these links.

Giveaway: The All New Ball Book of Canning and Preserving + Mason Jar Lifestyle

The All New Ball Book of Canning and Preserving

Friends, I had such a good time participating in International Can-It-Forward Day last week! Many thanks to all of you who took the time to tune in to ask questions, leave comments, and otherwise engage with my demo (if you missed it, you can see the video here).

Ball Book of Canning Basic Gear

This week, I’m hoping to keep all that good #CanItForward energy alive with fabulous giveaway. I have three copies of The All New Ball Book of Canning and Preserving to give away. This wonderful book came out back in May and is such an amazing addition to our collective canning libraries.

Ball Book of Canning Guava Vanilla Bean Jelly

The book features reasonably sized recipes across the food preservation spectrum. It digs into water bath canning, fermentation, pressure canning, freezing, dehydrating, curing, and smoking. Additionally, there is a liberal sprinkling of recipes designed to help you use up what you’ve put up. Oh, and did I mention all the gorgeous, full-color pictures? It’s truly a lovely book.

In addition to giving away three copies of this book, our friends at Mason Jar Lifestyle also want to help continue the #CanItForward love and so are adding to the goodness. They’ve offered to kick in a set of regular and wide mouth stainless steel mason jar rings for each of the three winners. These rings are great for mason jar fermentation set-ups because they don’t rust.

A Mrs. Wages Tomato Mix Giveaway

Mrs. Wages mixes

I look forward to tomato season all year. Because I don’t have a garden, it always starts for me when the hot house tomatoes appear at my local farmers market. Then, there comes a trickle of small tomatoes like sungold and cherry tomatoes. And then finally, the torrent. Tables heaped with heirlooms, slicers, and sturdy paste tomatoes.

Because I know that tomato season is fleeting, I make a point of canning at least 100 pounds of tomatoes each season (and sometimes more!). I can them whole, make puree, and cook pans of tomatoes down into thick, flavorful pastes. I also like to employ a little help and so occasionally turn to a package of Mrs. Wages salsa or pasta sauce. Made from spices, dehydrated herbs, citric acid, and salt, these packets are such a time saver.

So this week, I’m giving away a whole assortment of Mrs. Wages Tomato Mixes. The basket will contain an assortment of mixes, including pizza sauce, classic salsa, Bloody Mary, ketchup, and much more. If you’re interested in a chance to win this giant package of tomato canning goodness, here’s what you do.

  1. Leave a comment on this post and tell me about your favorite way to preserve tomatoes. Are you a whole peeled person? Or perhaps all your tomatoes are dedicated to batches of tomato jam. There is no wrong answer.
  2. Comments will close at 11:59 pm on Saturday, July 23, 2016. The winner will be chosen at random and will be posted to the blog on Sunday, July 24, 2016.
  3. Giveaway is open to US residents only (and is void where prohibited).
  4. One comment per person, please.

Mrs. Wages regularly sends out newsletters and posts useful canning info on Facebook, so make sure subscribe and like to stay in the know.

Sponsored Post: Infinity Jars Giveaway

Made from deep violet glass, the jars featured in this week’s Infinity Jars Giveaway can help preserve color and flavor!

Infinity Jars

I spent most of my time extolling the virtues of mason jars, but truly, my jar love knows no bounds. I appreciate the beauty of old apothecary jars, and have a weird fascination with large vintage peanut butter jars. Most recently, the deep violet jars sold by Infinity Jars have been the objects of my interest and fascination.

Made from specially pigmented glass that renders the jars nearly black (you’ll find that they’re actually a deep purple-y blue), they are smell-proof, block harmful UV light, and are thicker than your run-of-the-mill jam jar.

They are designed to help extend the lifespan of foods, salves, and other ointments that are sensitive to light. I’ve found that they do a really nice jar preserving the color and flavor of dehydrated foods, which often lose their vibrancy after a few months on the shelf.

The jars you see pictured here are from the Screw Top Variety Gift Pack and the sizes range from 50ml to 1L. I have my hibiscus flowers tucked into the largest jar to stop their light-related color loss.

This week, I have one of these jar gift packs to give away to a lucky Food in Jars reader. Use the widget below to enter the Infinity Jars Giveaway.

Giveaway: Bee’s Wrap Sandwich Wrappers

An assortment of Bee's Wrap sandwich wrappers

I first tried Bee’s Wrap back in early 2013 and quickly tumbled into food storage love with it. It’s a reusable food storage product made from wax-imbued fabric. You mold it over plates, bowls, and things like hunks of cheese in place of plastic wrap or foil, using nothing more that the heat of your hands and the slight natural stickiness of the wax to keep it in place. Using it gives my after dinner clean-up a sense of satisfying timelessness.

An opened Bee's Wrap sandwich wrapper

In the beginning, Bee’s Wrap only came in flat sheets, but more recently they’ve started making wrappers designed to keep your sandwich neatly contained and ready for lunch time. These sandwich wrappers come in three designs (classic, geometric, and clover) and the button is imprinted with the image of a busy bee. Needless to say, I am entirely charmed by these wrappers.

And so, that’s what I’m giving away this week. Three Bee’s Wrap sandwich wrappers. There will be three winners, each person receiving one of these nifty wraps. Here’s how to enter.

  1. Leave a comment on this post and tell me something that’s cooking in your kitchen this week.
  2. Comments will close at 11:59 pm eastern time on Saturday, July 2, 2016. Winners will be chosen at random and will be posted to the blog on Sunday, July 3, 2016.
  3. Giveaway open to United States and Canadian residents. Void where prohibited.
  4. One comment per person, please. Entries must be left via the comment form on the blog at the bottom of this post.

Disclosure: Bee’s Wrap sent me the wrappers you see pictured above for photography and review purposes, and has also providing the giveaway units. The warpers were provided at no cost to me. All opinions expressed here are entirely my own.
