National Can-It-Forward Day! What Will You Be Canning?


Can I get a huge cheer because Saturday is National Can-It-Forward Day? It’s the most wonderful time of the year… (to a tune)! I have been enjoying all that canning has to offer over the last few years and each year I get into it more and more. This year my goal was to can pickles (check!). We have also canned strawberry jam, jalapeno jelly, salsa, and some pizza sauce. The list goes on!

Saturday, August 17th, to celebrate, Ball is sponsoring an event to take place in Union Square at the Greenmarket in NYC from  10 a.m.-2 p.m. Plenty of canning experts will be on board along with the Food Network star, cookbook author, and James Beard Award Winner Ted Allen.

You can watch the live broadcast here:

The Schedule Features:

Joys of fresh preserving with a live, free webcast featuring canning, crafting and entertaining demonstrations. This year the live webcast will feature demos from Ted Allen, FamilyFun Magazine, Rick Fields from Rick’s Pickles and Taylor Davis from Mason Jar NYC who will be mixing up cocktails in Ball jars.

Make sure to tune in, get some tips, and can something this weekend! You can even try hosting your own home canning party!

Participate via social media on the Ball brand Facebook and Pinterest pages, or by tweeting along with the hashtag #canitforward.

I would love to see what you can, have canned, or produce you are going to can!
