Many of us in the sustainable living and slow food blogging communities know how very important, healthy, and great tasting preserved foods are. In fact we are so passionate about eating fresh food all year long that we want to help others learn to preserve food too.
A group of us got together to bring you a mega prize package of food preservation essentials. And to make the prize even sweeter many of the bloggers also included an extra prize!
The first part of the prize is the new Stainless Steel Ball Hot Water Canner.
You can use this canner for any of your acidic fruits and vegetable canning needs and it is specially made for glass top stoves too. Of course, you can use it on any other type of range also. For those foods that cannot be hot water bath canned, you can use the second prize.
The Food Saver Vacuum Sealer System, will protect your foods while they are in the freezer. If you need help with the skills there is an abundance of knowledge on all of the blogger’s websites and there are some award winning books on canning included in the prize package. To make the package complete, we added the canning tool kit.
The total value of all the prizes is over $250! So join in while we help you learn to Preserve the Bounty!
