She has jars and pectin too, saved me a trip to the store twice. CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK FOR SWEET CORN!!! But I really wanted to write and thank you for your site, (I have so far only canned fruit jams, but am ready to move on to more.) You really have a knack for those links-- they are great for anyone who is not to sure how to do something. Your explanations are so clear, and your writing style so "normal" that I feel like I'm talking to a friend. I'm not the most computer savvy person and you have it all set-up so EASY!!

I emailed the email address listed on your website (ckrowicki@yahoo.com) and asked them "Are you open today?" This is the response I received: "YES WE ARE OPEN FOR U PICK right NOW, BUT WE ONLY HAVE U PICK PEACHES AND NECTARINES AT THE MOMENT. WE WILL START PICK YOUR OWN APPLES AT THE END OF THE MONTH". After receiving that response we drove out to their farm. We received a very cold welcome and when we asked if we can pick our own fruit they said "we don't do that anymore". We asked them about the email we received - and they said that the person who sent us the email is not there right now. We were shocked at their rudeness and hope that you will advise other families of their obnoxious behavior.

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!
