Giveaway!

As we are all (well, most of us) canning our little hearts out, I thought it would be apropos to do a little giveaway.


I have one copy of Jackie Clay's book, "Growing and Canning Your Own Food".  An extremely thorough book that covers some basic growing information, as well as the how-to on canning just about everything you can imagine.  The only thing I find missing in this book is an index - it would have been helpful.  However, that being said, it's easy enough to follow.

If you would like to be part of this little giveaway, please leave a comment about canning below.  Open to readers in the US only - I apologize to my Canadian and Beyond friends.  Deadline for comments is Friday at midnight.  I will announce the winner on Monday next.  Good luck!

  1. The neighbor called last night, and told me to come help myself to half her tomatoes. The jars are washed....

  3. 19 quarts of tomatoes yesterday. Diced tomatoes in pints and tomato juice are in the planning stages. Love that home canned goodness in jars.

  4. My counter is overflowing in apples. Apple butter done now on to making and canning apple sauce. When winter winds blow will be nice to warm our tummies with my home canned goods.

  5. I think I'm all done with canning except for applesauce . . . that is if some wonderful apples come my way! The few on our trees aren't going to have enough time to reach maturity this year, I'm sure. :o(

    Don't enter me in the drawing for this book, though, as I have my own copy. Jackie Clay is full of common sense when it comes to canning and preserving which is appreciated.

  6. This has been a s l o w canning year for me...only what's needed for the winter. Plenty of tomato sauce and diced tomatoes, green beans, peaches, pears and Apple slices. I'll can my beans, beef, chicken and Turkey during the cool days of Fall and the cold days of Winter. I would love a chance of winning this book. Thank you.

  8. I was gifted a huge lot of jars from an elderly friend and I feel so blessed! So far I've put up spiced peaches, tomatoes, pepper jelly, applesauce, and dandelion jelly. I have plans for salsa and spaghetti sauce as soon as I get time (tomatoes are in the freezer waiting on me.)

  13. It's been a good garden year here in western NY state. We haven't started any canning yet. but will be canning tomatoes next week and hopefully some venison this fall. I haven't mastered preserving a lot in jars (aspire to be as good at it as Jackie Clay) but am pretty good at raspberry jam & pickled beets.
