    Comments from a visitor on December 11, 2011: "Hi there! My family and I took a drive out to the Walls Family Farm outside of Terrell. Their website is a great resource.  I found hours (accurate) and current crops (Christmas trees and pecans) at the site. We went out for pecans and found a great experience! Very country style, warm, inviting experience. They offered us a cup of free coffee or cider on arrival. In the main "store" they have "gift" quality pecans which are whole pecans fully shelled, no pecan pieces. Those are $7/lb. If you want in-shell pecans they are $2.25/lb for full shell and $2.50/lb for cracked pecans. We went with cracked since it was late in the day and we wouldn't have time to pick. Pick-your-own are $1/lb. There is no admission fee and you can stay all day. Also inside the store is a little snack bar. Cookies and pie (individual size) are $1 and hot dogs are $1.50. They have cut-your-own Christmas trees for $6/ft and will give you a free hay ride to either the pecan orchard or the Christmas tree orchard to pick your produce. The people are great - very nice. They also have a number of friendly dogs that roam the property and are totally kid friendly. They also have picnic tables out by the parking lot with fire pits so you can bring a picnic or eat some or your pick. They have blackberries as well in the late spring. Thanks for the tip! I hope this information helps for the site!"

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!
