  1. What wonderful news!

    This is sure to be my favorite event of the summer.

    Counting down the days until we all get together and learn to preserve!

    Thanks, Brook! It’s gonna be great!

  3. Tracy says:

    I’m totally in! I’m normally immersed in canning from June – September anyway. 😉 Can’t wait for more details!!

  4. What does Ball’s sponsorship entail? As a cooking class instructor already filling up my schedule with canning classes, is there incentive for me to participate on August 13? Will there be a charity component?

  5. Shannon says:

    Hi Rachel- We’re working on details for the event now and will be sure to let our readers know very soon. In the meantime, I suggest you visit the Ball website at: Thanks so much for your comment!

  6. Jeanne says:

    Rachel: Ball’s sponsorship for the August 13th Can-It-Forward Day means that we can get the word out about canning in a much more broad way! And we will be able to offer our readers some discount coupons and equipment (info coming soon). There isn’t a specific charity component (we’re not making any money on this). Our goal is to inspire folks to can at home! That sounds like what you do, too. Yay!

    Excellent! Where do we buy the apron?

  8. Jeanne says:

    Deva: Greetings! As of right now, we don’t have any aprons for sale. We are looking into how to do that and will list directions on the site when we do!

  9. Anita Simmons says:

    Like the apron too! Looking forward to getting one for myself and my sweetie! We are actually going to can in the winter as well. HUNTING season! What a way to bond!

  10. Jeanne says:

    Anita: ooo, you must tell us more about what you can for hunting season. Sounds interesting!
