Hello friends! So sorry that I dropped off the map this week. I came down with the flu on Friday afternoon and it wasn’t until this morning that I started to feel like a human again. As a result, there has been no new content for the last few days and February’s sponsor spotlight post is a bit late. Please excuse the absence and, if you feel so moved, send healthy thoughts in my direction!
It’s the beginning of February and that means it is time to highlight the businesses that help make it possible for me to devote so many of my waking hours to this blog! Please do visit them if they offer a product that interests you!
First up is jar accessory maker 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. They also sell the Mason Tap, which is an awesome tool for turning a regular mouth mason into a dispenser. To make it totally leak-proof, I pair mine with one of the rubber gaskets designed to work with the Tattler regular mouth lids.
Our friends at Fillmore Container are back this month as well. They’re a family-owned business based in Lancaster, PA and sells all manner of canning jars, lids, and other preservation gear. And if you’re looking for some of the purple heritage jars, they just got a shipment in stock!
Next up is Spice Ratchet. They make the blossom trivet that I use as a canning rack, and last fall they released a line of silicone Blossom uCaps for mason jars. They are available as astorage cap, a sipping cap, and a flower frog. I hear they have new products on the horizon, so stay tuned for more on that!
Last up is Fermentools. They make a brilliant fermentation starter kit that involves a heavy-duty glass pickling weight, an airlock, a lid with a reusable rubber seal, and mineral-rich salt. The pickles I made using their kit turned out deliciously!
