I can’t quite believe it, but December is here and that means that it’s time to thank the people and businesses that help keep this site afloat. Tell them you appreciate their support of my work with a purchase or a social follow!

In the top spot are our friends at Cuppow. They are the creators 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. Parents and kids love their EIO set, with its grippy silicone sleeve and a lid that makes for easy sipping. And make sure to check out their Cup Club, to see if using a mason jar and cuppow can earn you free coffee at a shop near you!

Lancaster, PA-based and family-owned Fillmore Container are next! They sell all manner of canning jars, lids, and other preservation gear. As always, their blog is an amazing resource for all things jar-related. If you’re in need of inspiration for jar-based giving, look no further than their helpful gift guides! Oh, and if you’re a parent looking for a new baby bottle or sippy cup option, check out their line of Mason Bottles!

Our friends over at EcoJarz are back again this month. They make an array of products designed to fit on top of mason jars, and they just released a kit for fermenters to their stock. It contains a wide-mouth stainless steel ring, a wide-mouth stainless steel lid with a silicone gasket and grommet, an airlock, and a fermenting guide. This month, use the code FOODINJARS2016 to get 20% your order.

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. Best of all, their lids come in a whole bunch of different colors, so there’s something for everyone! Check back next week, when I’ll be giving away some of their fabulous gear.

MightyNest is an amazing resource for non-toxic, natural, and organic products for homes and families. I’m a big fan of the MightyFix, their monthly product subscription program. Right now, you can give the gift of a year’s subscription to the MightyFix for just $99 (it regularly costs $10 a month, so that’s a great deal).

your Mighty Fix

Our friends at Mrs. Wages are on the roster again this month. 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 mix. If you need a little help getting your produce into jars, remember to seek out their products!

Hobby Hill Farm is back with us as well. Based in Powhatan, Virginia, they sell locally made jams and preserves, homemade pretzels, candies, and cheese making kits (including the mozzarella kit I demoed here). Sharon teaches a ton of preserving, cheese making, baking, and pasta making classes, so if you’re in her neck of the woods, make sure to check out her class schedule!

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. If you’re in the market for lids, straws, and cozies to transform your mason jars into travel mugs, make sure to check them out!

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!

Links: Pickled Fruit, Lavender, and Winners

making dilly beans

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.

The All New Ball Book of Canning and Preserving

Now time for some winners (and I’m a giveaway behind0. First up, the winner of the Mrs. Wages tomato basket from two weeks ago is #120/Joy. The winners of last week’s The All New Ball Book of Canning and Preserving and the stainless steel rings from Mason Jar Lifestyle are #117/Maria C., #238/Anita E., and #316/Kristal.

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.
