CAN-IT FORWARD DAY
7TH ANNUAL CAN-IT FORWARD DAY: SATURDAY AUGUST 5, 2017
August is the time to Can-It Forward!
The act of sharing is at the heart of home canning. The simple act of sharing something created by hand, and made with love, is what fills each jar.
Join us on August 5th as Newell Brands, makers of Ball® Home Canning Products, bring together canners, gardeners and food enthusiasts alike to celebrate and share the joys of canning. Visit the Ball Canning Facebook page each week in August for an exciting Preserving Summer Canning Class, where you can learn how to make and preserve delicious new recipes alongside our canning expert and a special guest every week!
Each class will focus on one of the four popular canning categories – Salsa, Jams, Pickles and Condiments – and take you through a step-by-step tutorial. Then, get inspired with fun ways to use your canned creations with fun and delicious recipes for your next summer BBQ, family dinner night and upcoming tailgate parties!
