Can It Forward 2012

Celebrate Can It Forward July 14th 2012

If you’ve been following my blog for any amount of time you know I love to can.  Usually I make jams.

Last year I made refrigerator garlic dill pickles.  I made  a couple  of jars of them a few weeks ago.

Canning is something I have enjoyed doing for many years and I am so happy to see how main stream it has become in the last few years.

The first thing I ever made was blackberry jam back in 1989 while we were living in Georgia. I picked wild blackberries a couple of years in a row.

I’ve got a great story about my blackberry picking days in Georgia if you’d like a chuckle or a shriek.

This year National Can It Forward Day is July 14th . Are you planning to host a canning party? Are you planning to catch some of the live events or watch online? I’d love to hear what your plans are.

I also want to let you know that I will be hosting a couple of great giveaways to help you celebrate National Can It Forward Day.

  1. Look at you, all pro w/ the little widget there! I may have to steal that sometime… :) No, but seriously, canning is something I’d like to get into this year, and I got the jars and the pot and all the trimmings. I just gotta do it. But since this is a year of “firsts” anyway, this is just one more “first”. :)

  2. I have been canning for a few years now, for my family and to have for gifts. I still feel like a complete novice, and could use all of the advice I can get :)

  3. I am a wannabe canner. My great aunt was a canner, my great grandmother was a canner, my husband’s great aunt is a canner. I want to be one too! We’re moving to SC next month and I plan on learning to can and start canning then.

    as a child i grew up on a small home farm and we grew and canned all our produce. but as i got older i didn’t do it. i’d love to get back into it. my parents were the experts on canning. i need to have a guide on how to do it. so i hope i win.
