    Comments from a visitor on October 18, 2008:
    "Arriving at the Jones Creek Farm, you see a red barn nestled in the blue Cascade mountains. You already feel at home as Chomper and Copper, the Price family's dogs welcome you wagging their tails and Talea and Les Price offer you a cup of fresh apple cider. Then it's off with provided wagons and bags to the orchard where Talea can tell you about every apple there, letting you know where to find the best sweet or tart varieties. There is only one rule at Jones Creek Farm and that is you should try every apple you possibly can. If you don't like it, throw it under the tree and move on to the next apples to taste. We were there for 3 hours last weekend and were stuffed as we left. Talea and Les are passionate about their farm and it shows. Not only is the farm beautifully kept and the crops grown organically, but not certified, they can also tell you all you want to know about the crops and how best to prepare them. Their friendliness and letting you taste and pick whatever you want is truly a unique experience. I moved here from the east coast where apple-picking is a common autumn outing, but I never visited a farm as friendly and knowledgable as the Jones Creek Farm. I will definitely return, perhaps for the garlic festival, tomotoes and the tree grafting in the winter."

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!
