Happy March 22, everyone! For most of you, this is just another ordinary Tuesday, but for me, it’s the official publication day for my new book-baby, Naturally Sweet Food in Jars (I know, it’s been shipping for the last two weeks. But now, there’s no denying it. The book is out there).
In celebration, I’ve teamed up with my friends at Fillmore Container for a little pub day giveaway. I’m hosting a giveaway over here and they’re also hosting another giveaway over on their blog (along with a sneak peek at one of the recipes from the new book).
Last week, when I gave away that giant bundle of Ball Canning gear, many of you mentioned how happy you were to see that they’d brought back the classic, rounded half pint jam jar. These fruit embossed jars are often a favorite with long-time canners and it was popular demand that’s brought them back into production.
I had a feeling that these jars would tickle your collective fancy and so when Fillmore asked me what I thought my giveaway should include, I just knew that these were the ones to feature.
These round jam jars hold 8 ounces and are the perfect vessel for jams, relishes, chutneys, and truly any preserve that you want to dress up a little bit more. This week, I have three boxes of these jars to give away to three winners (each box contains four jars). Over on the Fillmore Container blog, one lucky winner will get a copy of my new book, 2 cases of Orchard Road (both pints and half pints), a case of fruited jam jars, 2 Storage iLIDS, 2 reCap Flip Caps, 2 Packs of Pomona’s Pectin. It’s quite a prize package!
Here’s how to enter my end of the giveaway:

- Comments will close at 11:59 pm eastern time on Saturday, March 26, 2016. A winner will be chosen at random and will be posted to the blog on Sunday, March 27, 2016.
