When my kids and I finished picking and put the berries on the scale, the owner only charged us $4.00! Delicious berries, friendly folks, and great value!
    Comments from a visitor on July 16, 2010: (positive) -  "I took my teenage children out to this small picking farm in dearborn county, Indiana last week. The season was in for blueberries. We had a great time picking and talking to the owner. She is a fabulous woman with a great love for her family. By the time we were done picking we had 6-1/2 pounds of blueberries. I could have picked for hours out there in the field surrounded by blueberry bushes and talking. We will be back to pick here again.

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!
