I am just back from an extended weekend of vacation. Scott and I spent a blissful four and a half days tucked into a cabin that looked out on the Chesapeake Bay. We ate mountains of crab, read nine books between us and took multiple naps. There wasn’t internet access in our little cabin (an intentional choice) and so I’ve been quite silent on these here interwebs over the last few days (if you’ve sent me an email, I beg for your patience as my inbox overflows). For a girl who’s been on the move all summer long, the break from the demands of home and work was quite the treat.
Before I left town last week, I did a bunch of canning in the hopes of clearing out my fridge. I finally used the Ball Jam Maker I was sent to review and made a batch of tomato jam using orange slicing tomatoes and smoked paprika (so good!). I’ll have posts on both those topics later in the week, but while I gather my thoughts and do the vacation laundry, I thought I’d offer up a lovely little giveaway.
Back in July, the nice folks from Bon Ami got in touch in order to tell me about their Chicks Who Can promotion (get it, their mascot is a baby chick!). They’ve been working with canning bloggers to help spread the word about the fact that their products are (as they’ve always been) entirely free of harmful chemicals. They thought canners might be fond of that fact (I know this one is).
They’re offering on Food in Jars reader cleaning products for a year. It’s an incredible prize, and truly, the amount of dish soap, cleaning liquid, spray cleaner and the classic powdered cleanser they’re offering is fantastically generous (retail value is $145). Enough to share with a few friends or a lucky parent or kid. The winner will get to choose from either the Free & Clear or Tangerine & Thyme fragrance where applicable.
