    A visitor writes on June 22, 2011: "Called late in the afternoon the day before we went. Very courteous person on the other end. Drove to the entrance, then down a gravel road - a bit gouged by heavy rains a month previously. Farm was only a 1/2 mile from Hwy 16. Met Joe - very courteous - and bought several gallons of picked blueberries. Joe told us the best way to freeze berries and also how to let them ripen up a bit more once we got them home. Went back the following day for a few more gallons. Although grass was a bit overgrown in areas, farm was clean and well-organized. Will be the first one we go to next season."
    A visitor writes on June 08, 2010: "My daughter and I drove to Clear Creek Farm after 2 phone calls to the alternative phone number (the first phone number did not work). I told them on the phone that we wanted to pick our own blueberries and asked the cost per pound. When I finally found the turnoff and drove 3 miles down a bumpy rock road, the owner of the farm did not want us to pick our own berries but to purchase those already picked at an unreasonable price! The bushes we saw were not trimmed back last year and had lots of dead limbs. The grass was very high down the rows and even higher against the bushes. "

Home Canning Kits

Features:

Ball Enamel Waterbath Canner, Including Chrome-Plated Rack and 4-Piece Utensil Set

* All the tools you need for hot waterbath canning - in one comprehensive set!
* Complete with 21 1/2 qt. enameled waterbath canner
* Also includes canning rack, funnel, jar lifter, jar wrencher, bubble freer, tongs and lid lifter.
* A Kitchen Krafts exclusive collection.

This is the same type of standard canner that my grandmother used to make everything from applesauce to jams and jellies to tomato and spaghetti sauce. This complete kit includes everything you need and lasts for years: the canner, jar rack, jar grabber tongs, lid lifting wand, a plastic funnel, labels, bubble freer. It's much cheaper than buying the items separately. You'll never need anything else except jars & lids (and the jars are reusable)! There is also a simple kit with just the canner and rack, and a pressure canner, if you want to do vegetables (other than tomatoes). To see more canners, of different styles, makes and prices, click here!
Don't forget the Ball Blue Book!

Lids, Rings, Jars, mixes, pectin, etc.

Need lids, rings and replacement jars?  Or pectin to make jam, spaghetti sauce or salsa mix or pickle mixes?  Get them all here, and usually at lower prices than your local store!

Get them all here at the best prices on the internet!
