For years now, I have dreamed about designing a canning kit. It’s a space where the tools are often functional but not particularly beautiful. Happily, I learned recently that I wasn’t alone in wishing for more beautiful tools. Sarah Marshall, author of Preservation Pantry and maker at Marshall’s Haute Sauce has put together the most lovely wooden canning tools set.
The jar lifter has walnut handles. The wide mouth funnel is made from sturdy, gleaming stainless steel. And the lid lifter (also made out of walnut finished with beeswax) also has headspace markers. The whole thing feels sturdier and more durable than your typical set of tools. If you want another glimpse at it, you can see me holding it and talking about it in this Facebook video.
I am totally in love with this gorgeous set and I’m happy to say that thanks to Sarah, I have one of them to give away to my readers. We’re running the giveaway over on Instagram, so here’s what you need to do.
Head over to this Instagram post (make sure you’re logged into your account). Like that post. Make sure you’re following @spicymarshall, @marshallshautesauce, and @foodinjars (that’s me!). Then, tag up to five of your Instagram friends in separate comments. I will post the winner on Sunday, December 24, 2017 at 12 noon. Good luck!
Disclosure: Sarah Marshall from Marshall’s Haute Sauce sent me two of these canning sets (one to keep and one to share), along with a few jars of her haute sauce. No additional payment was received. All opinions and thoughts expressed are entirely mine.
Unfortunately I don’t do Instagram and I saw this too late. No worries. I have all those tools. Just not as pretty.
