Links: BPA-free Lids, Lilac Honey, and a Dry Herb Jar Winner

June 3, 2013(updated on April 24, 2023)

The last four days have been an absolute whirlwind. The highlights including a fig dinner* on Thursday night that was the best meal I’ve had in months (I may need to get out more), the chance to see many lovely friends and acquaintances at Eat, Write, Retreat, and a trip to a lovely old estate on the Delaware River to witness the marriage of a friend.

Many thanks to everyone who took the time to enter this week’s Dry Herb Jar giveaway, sponsored by Ball! The lucky winner is commenter #114, which is Elizabeth G. She said, “I keep my spices in the container they come in. My spices would look so cute in these!”

Elizabeth, I hope your spices look just as cute as you were hoping! Congratulations!

*In the interest of full disclosure, I was a guest at the fig dinner, which was hosted by California Figs.

Sharing is caring!

  • That is great news about the Ball jar lids!

  • I was so excited you featured those herb jars – I found them at my local Fred Meyer for $5 and they are already in use in my kitchen. But am I the only one having trouble getting the labels to stick?

  • Thanks for the mention, Marisa! I was also curious about Ball’s introducing BPA-free lids in such a stealthy manner. If only they’ll tell us what they’ve replaced it with…
