Gleaning is stripping all the leftover fruit off the trees. You keep the good fruit and throw the bad fruit on the ground. It takes about 5 trees to fill a box with 30 pounds of good fruit. I hate to see it wasted. God's Bread Box will be distributing food to 200 needy families on the 27th. I'm asking everyone to glean an extra box for them, it would be a blessing. Please call me! Thanks, Jeannie. I also run the Discovery Gardens Program where families purchase a garden row, come to garden classes and take home the harvest. Last season averaged 400 pounds. Membership has it's privileges. Discovery Gardens members have access to all of our tree fruit varieties, grapes, berries, and garden produce at a low members only price.

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!
