Jam Making Giveaway!

In celebration of our SOLD OUT Peach Jam Making class today at BOHO Farm,
I have a great giveaway to encourage others to join the jamming/canning revolution
and to revive the love of the home arts.



Giveaway includes:

The Ball Home Canning Discovery Kit
This is a great starter kit...you need no special equipment only what you already would have in your kitchen.
  • Introductory home canning kit eases a novice canner into it with a trial set that makes use of existing kitchenware
  • Includes an illustrated, simplified instruction book with recipes
  • Also includes polypropylene rack with separate, fitted lifter that works in standard stockpots
  • and 3 Pint jars
  • Bounce-back coupons for additional jars are a bonus inclusion
  • Efficient, low-cost way to learn canning, which could save money and broaden supplies in the long run


The Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving
This is my canning bible that I have talked about before!
For years this book and its great straight forward recipes have been a staple in my home. 
Approachable and easy to read and understand.  This is a great book to get your feet wet.



Canning for a New Generation: Bold, Fresh Flavors for the Modern Pantry
By Liana Krissoff
If the Ball Complete book is Elementary School, this book is High School. 
She combines some really interesting, fresh, modern flavors and also tell you how to make pectin through green apple stock. 
This is not your Mother's or Grandmother's cookbook.  This is the opening line:
"When I was growing up, canning was for old folks and cranks and separatists...oh, and for my parents..."

Thank you to all the lovely ladies who joined us on Saturday. 
 I hope you all learned a lot and are inspired to go make some jam!

We will be doing a "preserving the harvest "canning class on July 9th.
More information to come!

plenty of pictures and tips!

  21. I was going to have a garden this year because we are moving, but when the tomato seeds I started in the potting shed started growing, I decided....gotta have a small garden. We'll be moving to our land where we planted lots of fruit trees three years ago. It looks like we might get a few peaches and pears this year!
