    "Went to Martins Vinyard (Knotts Island, NC) last weekend and picked a bushel of peaches.  This weekend the picking opened up for grapes and apples.  Beautiful place and plenty of good pickin."
    Comments from a visitor on July 04, 2009: "
    Easy to park your car next to the peach trees, in early July, quite a few peaches. Only problem was the peaches were "color" ready, but otherwise were rock hard (still not ripe). $12 for 1 bag you are given that you put the peaches in. Will have grapes and apples too. (UPDATED: July 04, 2009)
    Comments from a visitor on September 08, 2008:
    "This is a beautiful location and appeared to have lots of wonderful things to pick - however the apple crop this year is damaged. Lots of rotted apples on the ground & in the trees. We couldn't find more then 3 single apples that appeared in December ent condition. We did not try any of the other things available to pick but the location is absolutely beautiful (for what that is worth!)" (UPDATED: September 08, 2008)

    Comments from a visitor on July 06, 2011: "I love the place. I go weekly and have friends who travel at least 45 minutes to go there every weekend during the season!! Morris Farms is known as the "Disney World" of farm markets. It's on the way to NC's Outer Banks and began with a farmer selling corn out of the back of his pick-up truck. He's from a long line of farmers. The market now features tractor-churned ice cream, a bakery, and events in the Fall. The market opened in the 80's and has expanded every year, with the Morris's using their great creative abilities to come up with more interesting things for us to enjoy every year. It's just a great market. No gimmicks. Just a great market. Wonderful bakery!! By the way, there was someone who stopped in the other day from Los Angeles who had heard all the way across the country about the clean, juniper-lined, history print bathrooms! What will they come up with next? "

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!
