Can It Forward Day
August 1st (Saturday ) marks a special and fun day, Can It Forward Day! On this day, canners around the country can celebrate the joys of canning and preserving your own food along with Jarden Home Brands (the makers of Ball) as they broadcast live canning demonstrations from their headquarters in Indiana from 11am to 4pm EST.
For those that are learning how to can, Can It Forward Day will be a great way to learn from the experts. Canning is best learned by watching those that already do it so this is a great chance to do that if you are in the process of discovering how to preserve foods at home.
You are encouraged to participate in this fun day by checking out the webcast above and by doing some fun canning on Can It Forward Day! You can also share your favorite canning recipes on social media by using the hashtag #canitforward. You can also ask the experts questions about canning during the live chat throughout the day.
Another fun way that you can participate? Check out the giveaway we are having right here on Little House Living!
One winner will win a Ball Fresh Tech Electric Water Bath Canning System + Multi Cooker, a Ball Preserving Book, plus one dozen pint Ball jars!
I recently had the opportunity to check out the brand new Ball Fresh Tech Electric Canning system. I was so excited about this system because personally I’ve always wanted to do some canning outside so my house doesn’t heat up from the steam! With the electric system I could plug in to one of our outside outlets and let the magic happen.
Since we are just getting into canning season here as the veggies and fruits are a little later due to a cool spring I started with my peaches and pears this weekend. I loved how easy to use the canning system was and how quickly it heated up. It’s great for doing a quick batch without tying up the stovetop or in my case…without heating up the house at all!
Thanks to Jarden Home Brands, I have one of these canning systems for you to enter to win as well! One winner will get one dozen jars, the Ball Preserving Book, and the electric Fresh Tech Canning system! (Over $175 value!) To enter, simply fill out the Rafflecopter form below.
I received products from Jarden Home Brands in exchange for sharing about Can It Forward Day. All thoughts on the products above are my own.
