I recently discovered the amazing world of canning and I have to admit, I’m a bit addicted. Not a weekend goes by that I don’t can some kind of fruit. My family already asked if I will quit my day job and make Jams and Jelly’s for sale anytime soon. I can honestly say I’m in love and if you haven’t tried it, you are missing out!
You can get started right now… really NOW! Today is National #CanItForward Day and National Can-It-Forward Day has gone International! Expanding to South Africa, Australia and Canada, International Can-It-Forward Day 2014 takes place on today, Saturday, August 16.
Whether you are a canning aficionado or a canning novice, this celebration is the perfect time to get all your questions answered, check out the new innovations in canning and get your hands on some fabulous recipes.
Your host Jarden Home Brands will host this year’s first ever International Can-It-Forward Day with special guest, renowned chef and Bravo’s Top Chef judge, Hugh Acheson! In addition, home cooks will be able to connect with a variety of online and in-person activities, now expanded to Canada and Australia.
New and experienced canners can participate in a live webcast, taking place at Brooklyn Borough Hall Farmers Market, filled with canning demos where viewer questions will be answered in real-time by Chef Acheson and other experts while they learn the most popular (and delicious) home canning recipes.
