Giveaway: Orchard Road Decorative Series One-Piece Lids

May 7, 2015

Orchard Road Decorative Series

Before I start talking about these lids, I want to say thanks. I so appreciate your patience with me during the last few weeks, when finishing the book draft made it so hard for me to show up here. I turned the manuscript in last night, so we can now turn our attention to more important things, like mason jar lids with whimsical prints!

Last summer, a new mason jar company entered the canning market. Called Orchard Road, they offered five sizes of jars as well as lids and rings (I first wrote about them here). In the last year, I have the chance to use their jars and lids a number of times and they have performed well and given me absolutely no grief.

This summer, Orchard Road has brought out a line of Decorative One-Piece Lids. They recall the old gingham and flowered lids that Ball used to make back in the day and have been a really fun addition to my canning process. They are one-piece lids, which means that they need to be handled a bit differently than the two-piece lids most of us regularly used. Happily, I have an entire blog post devoted to that topic that you can find right here.

The nice folks at Orchard Road have offered three sets of their new lids for a giveaway. Each of the three winners will get a one box of each of the new designs (fruit, purple gingham, and daisies). Additionally, for those of you who don’t want to take your chances on a giveaway, you can use the code “DECO25” for 25% off your order over at Orchard Road. As long as you buy at least one box of lids, it will take 25% off your entire order, including the jars!

To enter the giveaway, here’s what you do:

  1. Leave a comment on this post and share something new to you that you’re hoping to can this season.
  2. Comments will close at 11:59 pm eastern time on Tuesday, May 12, 2015. Winners will be chosen at random and will be posted to the blog soon thereafter.
  3. Giveaway open to United States residents only. Void where prohibited.
  4. One comment per person, please. Entries must be left via the comment form on the blog at the bottom of this post.

Disclosure: The folks at Orchard Road sent me the lids you see here so that I could try them and take some pictures. They are also providing the giveaway units. They have been site sponsors in the past, but are not at this time. No additional compensation has been provided for this post. All my opinions remain my own. 

Sharing is caring!

  • i’m actually cutting back – canned a bunch of interesting stuff last summer that didn’t get used, and we really missed the plain, plain tomato puree, so i’m going to focus on that again.

  • I am new to the whole canning thing but my mother was always an avid canner. Over the last couple years I have been slowly working on gaining some of her knowledge. Last year I learned how to do pickles, dilly beans, and other vegetables. This year I want to do some tomato sauce and stewed tomatoes. I am trying to master the things I know I will use right up!

  • Tomato Ketchup- my kids go through so much of it and i’d rather feed them something i made than something storebought.

  • Maybe blueberry jam – Our 4 year old bushes should FINALLY produce a decent amount this season!

  • Believe it or not, I have never canned pear anything. This late summer/fall, my goal is pears! These one-piece lids look great, and your post on how to use them us very useful. They are also on my to-try list 🙂

  • Tomatoes. And peaches. I haven’t had the chance to can as I’d like this spring, so I’m hoping summer and fall bring ample opportunity. 🙂

  • Rhubarb jam and plum jam–I even have the recipes picked out because I didn’t get to them last summer!

  • I’ve done pickles many times, but I’d like to can some relish this year. My daughter loves Thousand Island dressing and having homemade mayo, ketchup and relish to make it with would be great!

  • I think I might try something new with rhubarb since it looks like I’ll have a bumper crop this year!

  • I’ve started canning this year thanks to this blog! My first project will (hopefully!) be strawberry jam.

  • I’m trying to expand my pressure canning repertoire. So far I’ve done chicken stock, beans, and caramelized onions. Maybe chili next?

  • I bought your book ‘Preserving by the Pint’ & hope to try many recipes from it this year. I am so excited to try them. 🙂

  • ooo, i’m hoping to get another bushel of organic pears so i can make some more pear-vanilla jam. i love that stuff; can eat it with a spoon.

  • I just recently made white bean chicken chili, which was a first for me. Not sure what else “new” is on the docket.

  • Pickles! I’ve made a zillion jars of jam, jelly, and even whole fruit but have never tackled the savory side of veg.

  • Those are so sweet!

    Our garden has just started to get going this year and I’m hoping for pickled okra!

  • I am soo happy to see that a US company is doing these! In the UK there are all sorts of pretty lids, but the shipping is so expensive! My jams and pickles will be very happy!

  • Tomatoes! I have San Marzanos growing in hopes of trying my hand at canned tomatoes for sauces this year.

  • Pickled tomatillos and tomatillo salsa! I love tomatillos, and make the salsa fresh. It would be really nice to have jars of it ready to eat for the winter. Ole!

  • Tomatoes! Whole, sauce, salsa, and jam. I did some canning last spring/summer/fall, but no tomatoes. I quickly exhausted my home-frozen tomatoes and this winter I realized how often I was reaching for grocery store tomatoes of all kinds. So, this summer will be the Summer of the Canned Tomatoes.

  • I’m just getting in to canning for the first time this year! I did it with my Mum growing up, but have never done it on my own. I just bought canning equipment and I’m planning on making some strawberry jam within the next 2 weeks! Super excited to get started!!

  • This summer I really want to make ketchup – should be a fun adventure.

    Also, I used your directions for using one piece lids and it worked so perfectly! I made tons of jam for wedding favors for my sons wedding and it turned out really well and the one piece lids looked very nice. Thanks for the great instructions!

  • I’m hoping to can ketchup and mustard this year. I’ve been making and freezing them, but this year I hope to find recipes that I like and can run through a canner.

  • I’m hoping to make your corn salsa! I’ve read about it on a couple other blogs, so it must be delicious.

  • Plums and beans. I’ve never used a pressure canner before, but my neighbor is going to let me borrow hers. I’m excited to try it!

  • I am hoping to get some rhubarb in jars now that my plant has successfully established itself! Thanks for the giveaway!

  • I plan to try my hand at chicken. I found out that I can indeed use a pressure on my glass top stove. I’m saving my money for a canner big enough for both water bath and pressure canning.

  • There are so many but I am especially looking forward to your salted brown sugar peach. It is my favorite! All the recipes I have tried from both your books have turned out beautifully. My father deems your strawberry jam recipe the best! Thank you for all the fantastic recipes and inspiration.

  • I’d like to try to can some asparagus but I worry that I’ll mess it up and then I’ll have wasted some delicious asparagus.

  • It’s my first time growing tomatoes, so I’m looking forward to salsas and tomato sauce!

  • My husband and I believe we have finally perfected our pickling brine, so we are going to experiment with pickling asparagus, carrots, cauliflower and our ODDEST idea is to take the hearts of cabbage we cut out and pickle them (fingers crossed)
    I love the retro look of these.

  • I’m hoping to can anything that the rabbits will not let me. Otherwise, I’ll be canning rabbit!

  • Must admit – am thinking more about favourites that we can’t miss. We have just run out of peaches – so must do more this year. We absolutely must do some vanilla pears which are the best canned fruit ever!

  • Have always made and canned different jelly’s and jams but I do plan on making and canning some pizza and spaghetti sauce and would also like to can up some tomatoes this year as well.
    Thank you for this great giveaway

  • after several seasons making salsa I had such a large amount of salsa that I didn’t can any in 2014!! After the long winter, the cupboard is bare!! and I am anxious to make some more!

  • I have canned so many different things over the years, but this year I would like to try canning home made mustard. I am tired of the same old yellow mustard.

  • I can a lot. These lids are so very pretty. They would be perfect for my jars I give as gifts.

  • I am going to try canning salsa. It’s something I know my family will eat. It’s been a long time since I did any canning!

  • Adorable covers! Would like to try them. Will check out how to use them on your blog. Thanks for all these opportunities to view new canning products. Cheers.

  • I’m looking forward to trying a pickled mushroom recipe that a friend uses, and to putting by some asparagus.

  • Last year, I canned what I thought was way too much jam–peach, plum, blackberry, ground cherry… Guess how much jam I have remaining in my pantry less than a year later? One blackberry, which I’m hiding until I can can again this season. So, jam is on my list to can. Lots of it.

  • I’ve ordered some organic dried beans that I am going to can, using your method! Hopefully my garden will get planted this weekend with some pepper plants and several varieties of tomatoes. My husband likes a sweet hot pickled jalapeno from our local grocery store. They are not carrying them anymore so I am hopeful that I can re-create it this summer.

  • I’ve seen a few recipes for Rhubarb catsup ! Want to make for sure this year.
    The lids would be so cool to use. Thanks for throwing my hat into the ring .

  • My rhubarb plant just sprouted, and this is the first year I can harvest from it… So I’m hoping maybe for a strawberry rhubarb jam this year!

  • I have canned “Rose Petal Jelly”, This year I am looking forward to canning more plus “Prickly Pear Jelly”. I am also kicking around [creating] a jelly recipes using Chocolate Mint and Apple Mint. The lids are pretty.

  • I recieved a pressure canner as a gift from the hubby. can’t wait to can homade tomato sauce!

  • I’m interested in working with rhubarb this summer. I’ve eaten it many times, but never done any home processing with it!

  • I have always wanted to try these but did not feel confident about how to use them. Thanks to your post on how to use them properly I am looking forward to trying them. Oh yes, canning season is here!

  • I ant to try pickled asparagus and some things with jalapenos. I still have some of hose old ball lids in my pantry, they have vegetables on them.

  • I’ve been reading your blog for about a year , and bought both books, I think I’m ready. I’ve canned tomatoes, now it’s time to get crazy with my CSA box!, and my garden, and the farmers markets. Let the canning been!

  • Fun! They’re really cute. I’d like to play more with salsa’s and chocolate preserves this year. The chocolate strawberry from last year was a big hit!

  • These are adorable! Express my gratitude to the company for providing a discount code for your readers. Since my family doesn’t eat a lot of fruit but I really want to try my grandmother’s recipe for canned peaches these would be the perfect lids for that project since they will instantly have the look of a gift without me having to cut fabric and ribbon!

  • I recently visited China and had some delicious and unusual pickles. Especially of note were some diakon pickles. I’ve made before the diakon and carrot pickles, but these were much different – almost like a cuke spear, but more toothsome. I’m dying to find this recipe and give these a try!

  • I got a pressure canner this winter so I plan on canning everything this summer. I’d like to try some homemade chili

  • My daughter bought us a Pressure Canner this year. We are going to can as much as we can. Chicken bone broth is up first!

  • Now that I’m starting to become more comfortable with canning I’m going to can some of my favorite stewed tomatoes. It’s simple, but my mom has made batches of stewed tomatoes every summer for as long as I can remember. Every time I open a new jar the smell of those summer beauties is so comforting. My mom is getting older so it is time for me to learn.

  • We finally have a garden again after three years, so pickle relish, dilly carrots, and dilly peas are on the horizon. I’d also like to do up a few batches of strawberry jam since my toddler seems to be PB&J powered.

  • I’m going to can strawberry margarita jam. I recently made strawberry gingerale jam that I used in some strawberry shortcake cupcakes that were super yummy!

  • I am excited about trying new flavors with my fruit jams like strawberry vanilla bean, blackberry lemon, etc. My husband has been so ill I am looking forward to getting back to a normal llife. I pray that will be soon.
