Big thanks to everyone who took the time to enter the Progressive International canning tools giveaway last week! You guys are passionate about your canning equipment (as well you should be).
The winner is commenter #575, Jess from Krista and Jess (if you haven’t checked out their Jar Lunch feature, I highly recommend you click over and take a peek). Jess said:
The wide-mouth funnel makes my LIFE easier, not just my canning. I use it for almost everything. I have the ubiquitous silver funnel, but that head space measuring funnel seems pretty great, too.
Also, I realized recently that I never posted winners for the Korin knife sharpening giveaway (life gets away from me sometimes). The winners are commenter numbers 14, 43 and 70. I’ll be in touch with all the winners.
Finally, while we’re on the subject of giveaways, Mrs. Wages is currently hosting a Facebook sweepstakes in which they’re giving away a Presto pressure canner and some other good stuff. If you’re interested in entering (no purchase necessary), click here.
I feel, basically, like I won the lottery.
I’m in a canning frenzy this summer. So far I have canned three kinds of pickles, blackberry sage jam, fig jam, Earl Grey tea jelly, pickled green beans and pickled cherries. Hmmmm, what next? Tomatillos!
