fresh preserving kit Okay kids, we have a winner in the Fresh Preserving Kit giveaway! At 11:59 p.m. last night, the reached deep down into it’s bag of digits and came back with the number 5. That means that the lucky gal who will get her very own canning kit and Ball Blue Book of Preserving is Meryl.

Oddly enough, Meryl was just blogging about canning tomatoes on her site, My Bit of Earth, so while the kit may not reach her in time for this batch of tomatoes, here’s hoping it will get there in time for her next big round of preserving. Congratulations Meryl!

If you didn’t win my giveaway, make sure to head over to Canning Across America, they still have a few copies of the Ball Blue Book to give out to people who are hosting canning gatherings on the weekend of August 29th and 30th.

Sharing is caring!

  • I have grown my own tomatoes this year, but thinking about getting canning tomatoes from the local farmers. Now I know what 30 lbs. of tomatoes look like. We just did 14 pints of stewed tomatoes with vegetables on Saturday. Two gallons of chopped tomatoes were processed. Yeah!

  • I purchased this kit at target a few weeks ago and really enjoyed my first canning experience this year. I was very hesitant, as I’ve never done this , but after purchasing my husbands grandmothers house and finding over 300 old canning jars, various shapes and sizes, I have realized she was on to something. My very first garden this year is overwhelming me with it’s over abundance of yumminess and I have had to learn how to can to hold on to it all. I have done 12 jars of bread and butter pickles so far and am looking forward to more!
