August 1, 2015 – 5th Annual Can-it-Forward Day

Now in its 5th year, Can-It-Forward Day was recorded from the new state-of-the-art Jarden Home Brands headquarters in Fishers, Indiana, celebrating the joys of fresh preserving. To showcase the simplicity of home canning and spotlight “Made From Here” recipes, four blogger ambassadors from across the country shared their preserving expertise with their own recipes: Food in Jars' Marisa McClellan of Philadelphia, PA, Hoosier Homemade's Liz Latham of LaPorte, IN, Southern Plate's Christy Jordan of Hunstville, AL and Yesterday on Tuesday's Malia Martine Karlinsky of Seattle, WA. Get a behind-the-scenes look at recipe testing and development and the science behind ensuring safety and the highest quality of all home canning recipes.

In addition to American favorites, the International event also features flavors from Australian Chef Rebecca Sullivan demonstrating recipes from "down under". Participating via web internationally, canners in South Africa, Australia and the UK, will also join by making and sharing their own favorite canning recipes!
