Get Ready for Fall with Ball Brand Canning Jars & Giveaway #canitforward

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

This summer is the FIRST summer that I have ever been able to have a full size garden in my backyard and I AM LOVING IT!!!

In the past, we haven't had a yard to put a garden in so I have always grown my produce in pots. This year, I am able to grow A LOT more and I am have loved every minute and every bite so far!

Along with a lot of produce, I am also excited to try canning some of it this year (if there is ever any kids eat like 3 teenage boys!).

When I want canning answers and help, I turn to the only brand I know and trust when it comes to canning my organic produce: Ball Brand!

They actually just celebrated the fifth annual Can-It-Forward Day this last Saturday August 1st where they broadcast live online at from their new state-of-the-art Jarden Home Brands headquarters in Fishers, Indiana.

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. The webcast has an integrated chat function where viewers can submit their home canning questions to be answered in real time. New this year, there will also be an exciting celebrity mason jar auction unveiled during the webcast!
