Many of us in the homesteading, gardening, and prepper blogging communities understand well the methods used to preserve garden fresh food that would otherwise be considered “perishable.” In fact, we are so passionate about preserving the bounty that we want to help others learn to do it, too. So, a group of us got together to bring you this mega prize package of food preservation essentials. And to make the prize even sweeter many of the bloggers have also included an extra prize (see the blogger’s list below to learn what the extra prizes are)! The main prize package includes a:
- Brand new Stainless Steel Ball Elite Hot Water Canner which you can use to preserve acidic fruits and vegetables (like Dilly Beans). Note that it is specially made for glass top stoves! You can use it on any stove top, but if yours is glass, you have no worries.
- Food Saver Vacuum Sealer System V3240 which you can use for the things you cannot can in the canner (because they are low acid … like meat, un-pickled veggies, etc.). Vacuum sealing prevents freezer burn (or at least postpones it for a LONG time). And if you buy the jar attachment for it, you can use it to vacuum seals jars like I talked about in my post How To Use Canning Jars for Dry Storage.
- Canning Tool Kit which you will need when you first start canning. If you are completely new to canning, see my post First Time Canning? Seven Things To Do First.
If you need help with the skills to use any of these products, there is an abundance of knowledge on all of the blogger’s websites and there are some award winning books on canning included in the prize package.
The total value of all the prizes is over $250! So join
in while we help you learn to Preserve the Bounty!
