It’s been a busy summer so far, but I was able to put in a kitchen garden this year.
It was just in time to win a Ball Made To Share canning House Party which was sponsored by Newell Brands.
The Party Pack sponsored by Newell Brands
ur party pack came with 8 Ball Regular Mouth Pint Sharing Jars (BPA free and made here in the USA, Ball Enamel Water Bath Canner with rack, Ball Canning Accessory Kit, Ball Blue Book Guides, Ball/McCormick Spice Cards and The All New Ball Book of Canning and Preserving. Along with all this came $3 coupons for all my guests to use on the new Ball Sharing Jars.
On the day of the party my guest and I made two recipes of salsa. The first recipe we canned was McCormick’s salsa that came on the back of the spice card pack. It was easy to follow and the spice’s were pre-measured for you; just add canned or fresh tomatoes and lemon juice. This made a rich red color salsa.
Our next recipe we took from page 82 of the New Ball Blue book for Zesty Salsa, this recipe gave us a nice chunky-style salsa. We gathered around the kitchen island and all worked under the guidance of Vicky of Victoria’s Tea Salon. She was wonderful with her advice and expertise in the kitchen. Even my little niece got in on the canning party. There was a lot of laughter going on in the kitchen that day with friends and family.
When it came time we used the provided Ball Sharing Jars. These jars were so easy to use with the Ball Sure Tight lids and showed off our salsas wonderfully. I used my Ball canning labels from last year which I found at Target and made quick work labeling our goodies.
We all had a great time and learned a lot, loved the sponsored products and coupons for the Sharing Jars and knowing that for every package of those jars Newell Brands will donate 4 meals to Feeding America - the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization.
Each of my guest went home with a copy of The All New Ball Book of Canning and Preserving. Along with $3 coupons to use on the new Ball Sharing Jars.
