International Can-It-Forward Day! A Good Place To Start…

Happy International Can-It-Forward Day!


Last year I wrote about National Can-It-Forward Day, but this year Jarden Home Brands is taking it International!

Here in this house we celebrate this as a holiday.:) Kidding (kind-of). But honestly, we will be canning today. Peaches are crazy plentiful right now and so are tomatoes. I’m thinking of heading up to the farm and grabbing some seconds this afternoon.

Whether you are brand spankin’ new to canning, just interested in it, or it is old hat for you, make sure to join in on the festivities. You’ll be able to watch a live broadcast right from Ball Brand’s Homepage! BRAVO’s Top Chef Judge, Hugh Acheson will be making an appearance at the Brooklyn Borough Hall Farmers Market. He’ll be participating in canning demos where viewers will be able to ask questions live in real time! Twenty Five Farmers Markets across the country will be hosting Can-It-Forward festivities as well! Is yours one of them?

Make sure to tune it!

10:00am – 10:45am Pepper Jelly Demo with Ball® FreshTECH™ Automatic Jam & Jelly Maker
