Last week’s trip to Chicago was so terrific. I did seven events in six days, caught up with friends, helped raise money for the Ferrer Foundation, and met so many of you lovely folks. I got home on Saturday morning, and have spent the last 36 hours doing laundry, catching up with work, and spending time with my husband (he’s such a good sport about my frequent travels). Now, links!

Giveaway: Mrs. Wages Perfect Pickle Sampler

This picture features an assortment of pickle spice and starter packets from the brand, Mrs. Wages.

This week’s Perfect Pickle Sampler giveaway comes to us from long-time Food in Jars sponsor Mrs. Wages. I’ve been doing a bit of work with the folks from Mrs. Wages for the last six years and one element of our annual partnership is that they always offer up one or two awesome baskets of their mixes, spices, and starters for me to give away to my wonderful readers. This summer is no exception!

This is the first of two baskets of canning helpers that I’ll be giving away from Mrs. Wages this summer. This basket contains nearly every pickle product that Mrs. Wages makes, which should delight the pickle lovers. Here’s exactly what’s in the basket.

If this massive collection of pickle spices and starters appeals to you, here’s how to enter the giveaway.

  1. Leave a comment on this post and tell me about your favorite pickle. Whether it’s fermented or vinegar based, one your mom always has in her fridge or something you discovered at the local supermarket, I want to hear about it.
  2. Comments will close at 11:59 pm eastern time on Saturday, June 11, 2016. Winners will be chosen at random and will be posted to the blog on Sunday, June 12, 2016.
  3. Giveaway open to United States residents only.
  4. One comment per person, please. Entries must be left via the comment form on the blog at the bottom of this post.

Disclosure: Mrs. Wages is providing the basket for the giveaway. They are also a Food in Jars sponsor and so do help contribute to the running of this site.

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!
