Giveaway: Fresh Herb Keepers from Ball Canning

March 2, 2015

This week, the giveaway is simply about sharing a pair of Fresh Herb Keepers that landed in my possession last summer. I was doing a canning demo at a local farmers market, funded by one of Ball Canning’s Discover You Can grants.

In addition to giving this particular market a little bit of money to help with canning education, they’d also sent a bunch of materials, including cutting boards, handled drinking jars, coupons, and several boxes of these herb keepers. The organizer had given away most of the gear but there were still a few of these herb keepers left after the crowds has dispersed, and so I went home with a couple, always intending to share them here.

Now, months later, here we are. I have two of these very clever herb keepers to give away. They make it possible to vastly extend the lifespan of your fresh herbs, which is a nice thing. Essentially, it’s an updated version of the glass of water and plastic bag approach that my grandma (and probably yours) used to use, only this one doesn’t leak all over the place if you jostle the glass.

Here’s how to enter:

  1. Leave a comment on this post share one way you’ve been incorporating herbs (either fresh or dried) into your cooking lately.
  2. Comments will close at 11:59 pm east coast time on Saturday, March 7, 2015. The winner will be chosen at random and will be posted to the blog by Sunday, March 8, 2015.
  3. Giveaway is open to US residents and Canadian residents.
  4. One comment per person, please. Entries must be left on the blog, I cannot accept submissions via email.

Disclosure: I got these herb keepers for free, but no one is really sponsoring this giveaway. The Ball Canning folks don’t know I’m doing it. I just thought I’d share the wealth. 

Sharing is caring!

  • I have been using fresh rosemary on my fish when I bake it and fresh basil in my spaghetti sauce.It makes such a difference when you get it fresh.My market sells a good selection of fresh herbs.I have tried growing it but not much luck with that.

  • The only fresh herb I purchase this time of year is cilantro. But I cook from scratch and have been making a lot of Italian, Mexican, Chinese and Vietnamese dishes lately. The last three, I incorporate the fresh cilantro.

  • I freeze many of my garden herbs to use in the winter. There is nothing like freshly frozen dill for a cucumber salad, a pot of beet borscht or on a salmon baking in the oven. Frozen parsley added at the end of cooking brightens up many dishes and a few sprigs of tarragon are great in a vegetable soup.
