It’s that time of year again and you know what that means – it’s time for a giveaway! The wonderful folks at Ball Canning are celebrating the 4th annual Can-It-Forward Day by providing a really spectacular prize pack of fun items that I get to pass along to one of you. I just love giving stuff away!
It wouldn’t be a Ball giveaway without those iconic mason jars but did you know that Ball has a line of products specifically designed for preserving and cooking with fresh herbs? Four products from the Culinary Herb Series and ALL of the other items pictured above are included in the prize pack. I want to share a little more about each of the items but first, let’s talk about the reason behind the celebration.
They’re canning all over the world! Can-It-Forward Day is going International this year with special events taking place in Canada, Australia and South Africa. The main event takes place this Saturday, August 16, in New York City but everyone, everywhere can participate by taking part in the live webcast and participating in local events.
Some of the highlights from the schedule include canning demos by celebrity chef and judge on Bravo’s Top Chef, Hugh Acheson, and mason jar crafting demos from the folks at Martha Stewart Living. There’s something for everyone, from the experienced canning enthusiast to those brand new to canning – and everyone else in between. Click on the image above for all the details.
