Only If You Try


Shannon SaiaI recently won a Ball FreshTech Canner in a Grit blogging contest, and I couldn't have been more surprised. It's an incredible tool that I probably wouldn't have bought for myself, so I think it's very cool.

Ball FreshTech Canner

It's been here for a few days, and I still haven't taken it out of the box yet, partly because I started a new job this week and I have been slammed with unfamiliar activities, and partly because, well, I'm a little freaked. When I think of pressure canners, I can't help but think of explosions and food poisoning. I'm not proud of it, but this is new territory for me. 

I was with a coworker this afternoon and I happened to mention the canner to him.

"I'll show you what you do with it," he said, and promptly led me out to his garage, where he showed me a whole shelf full of home-canned food: chicken, soups, relishes, carrots, beans, tomatoes ... it was amazing. He even sent me home with samples, which I can't wait to try.
