Canning Utensil Kit Giveaway


Post by community member:

A gift for you!

A reader, who chooses to remain anonymous, emailed me recently to offer a Ball canning utensil kit. It’s a new, in-package, never opened kit she received–and she already has a set of these utensils. So she thought of you! And asked me if I would give it away for her.

Well, of course!

The kit includes a jar lifter, funnel, bubble remover/headspace measuring tool, and lid lifter. Let me know you want it by leaving a comment on this post. One winner will be drawn by random comment number to receive the kit. Eligible entry cut-off is midnight Eastern (U.S.) time tonight (September 22). This post will be updated with the winner by 9 a.m. Eastern (U.S.) time tomorrow (September 23). Return to this post to claim the kit if your name is drawn.

    Oh what a nice gift! I could have used this earlier this summer when I put up over 140 qts of some good food for the winter! However, should I win this wonderful gift I will put it to good use in a few weeks when I put my grandmother’s kraut recipe together and “put up” a couple more dozen jars of the crunchiest kraut ever! So yes, please count me in!

    My dh is getting me a pressure canner in the next few weeks. I am working on things that can be canned by bwb right now. Just feel an urgency to make sure our food storage is kept stocked. At least we will have something to share! :c)

    sure would like to win this, count me in please!
