Can-It-Forward Day {Giveaway}

Posted by  ·  August 1, 2015  ·  Last Updated: August 1, 2015

As most of you know I love canning!  I have the sweetest giveaway for you so scroll to the bottom to see the goods! If you want to learn more about canning you can watch the fifth annual Can-It-Forward Day, live broadcast online at FreshPreserving.com. This is an event celebrating the joys of fresh preserving. Can-It-Forward Day encourages gardeners & food enthusiasts across the country to celebrate what “Made From Here” means to them by fresh preserving their favorite local ingredients in peak season. New this year, you can ask questions in real time and there will be an exciting celebrity mason jar auction unveiled during the webcast! If you can’t tune in the video will be available the next day.

I am thrilled to show off the FreshTECH Electric Water Bath Canner + Multi-Cooker.  It is a plug-in, countertop appliance that eliminates the need for stove top heating.  This removes the concerns of ceramic-glass stove top owners and makes it more convenient to handle than traditional water bath canning pots.  Let me tell you it makes canning way more convenient! I loved the spigot on the side to drain the hot water! You also don’t need to monitor boiling water or move the pot to fill and drain. I love it and you get the chance to win one!

    I canned as a young girl with my Mother. We canned everything! When she passed away more than 35 years ago when I was a new Mother, I quit. Now my three grown daughters can and I want to do it with them to try and build the memories I have with my Mother. This new water bath makes it look so much simpler than it was 35+ years ago. I would love to start canning again with something so neat.

    Love your site and would love to win just like everyone else. I do a lot of canning every year with my daughter. We grow as much as we can to save money and also we know what we are eating.

    This would be a godsend. My hubby dropped a heavy bead pan and broke my glass stovetop last October and the hotplate I cook on isn't very good for canning! I need to can because we can buy veggies in bulk and save money. It isn't easy to get by on Social Security.

    This is a great canner! I love the fact that they put a spigot on the side. It is a challenge to dump the water out of the traditional water bath canners due to how tall they are.

    I really enjoy canning, and often can with friends. Sometimes, space on the stove is an issue, so this would make a great solution. Plus, my current canning pot doesn't have a flat bottom, so I can't use it on my electric stove.
