    Comments from a visitor on June 23, 2012: "We love this farm! It's quiet, peaceful, and well-maintained. Going out to the farm to pick has become a family tradition we look forward to every year. It's a summer highlight for our grandchildren. The Blueberry Place has blueberries. The owners provide buckets, liner bags, and harnesses for children and adults so you can pick with two hands! There is a sheltered area where you pick up your buckets and then come back to weigh your blueberries on a scale. You then pay, using the honor system, by leaving your money in a basket on a shelf! There's even a change box, if you don't have the correct amount! They also have blueberry jam and jelly and homemade recipe books for sale. The Blueberry Place participates in the annual Blueberry Festival in Nacogdoches in May with shuttle buses transporting pickers from downtown to the farm throughout the day."

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!
