Mason jars!  Who doesn’t own at least one,  or in my case ten thousand!

The multipurpose glass containers are convenient for a number of reasons;  they’re perfect for storing food, awesome for drinking purposes, they can be used as planters or whatever your heart desires.

So needless to say that when BALL  approached me with a possible partnership to celebrate  “Can- It – Forward- Day” I jumped on the occasion.

Now in its sixth year, ” Can- It – Forward- Day” was born from the desire to share or pay forward  the joy and benefits of canning, bringing together canners, gardeners and food enthusiasts alike.

Can-It-Forward Day also supports communities offline, five small, local, non-profit organizations have been selected with the help of participating bloggers to benefit from the event. For every like, share, reaction and comment on the Can-It-Forward Day Facebook Live videos today (July 22) a $1 donation will be made to local charities.

Want to participate? Below are a few ways you can:

  • Engage with any of the Facebook Live recipe videos and a donation will be made to charity.
  • Pledge to can-it-forward by signing up via the pledge page and share with friends.
  • Engage with any of the Facebook Live recipe videos and a donation will be made to charity.

In addition to engaging in one of the above mentioned ways; I’m also hosting a fun giveaway. Ball has recently released a brand new canning an preserving book filled with recipes and preserving techniques.

I will be the first to admit that this book will most likely rival all canning books you’ve ever read ( if any). The step by step instructions are extremely simple to follow and are sure to make you a canning expert in no time!

Because of the book, I’ve come to the realization that canning is somewhat of an art form. It requires patience and attention to detail.

    I love canning. I make many of my Grandmother’s and Great Grandmother’s canning recipes. I agree with you. Canning is an art form. This year I plan to focus on using wax during the sealing process. I still haven’t gotten that down yet.
