Preserving the Bounty Giveaway!!
Many of us in the sustainable living and slow food blogging communities know how very important, healthy, and great tasting preserved foods are. In fact we are so passionate about eating fresh food all year long that we want to help others learn to preserve food too.
A group of us got together to bring you a mega prize package of food preservation essentials. And to make the prize even sweeter many of the bloggers also included an extra prize!
The first part of the prize is the new Stainless Steel Ball Hot Water Canner.
You can use this canner for any of your acidic fruits and vegetable canning needs and it is specially made for glass top stoves too. Of course, you can use it on any other type of range also. For those foods that cannot be hot water bath canned, you can use the second prize.
The Food Saver Vacuum Sealer System, will protect your foods while they are in the freezer. If you need help with the skills there is an abundance of knowledge on all of the blogger’s websites and there are some award winning books on canning included in the prize package. To make the package complete, we added the canning tool kit.
The total value of all the prizes is over $250! So join in while we help you learn to Preserve the Bounty!

Awesome giveaway. So many great sponsors. Trying to visit them all.
Great giveaway. Thanks for encouraging us to preserve the bounty!
So glad you entered!! Keep preserving and live abundantly!! Stacy
I just moved relying solely on my phone. An avid canner and although I love grammars old pressure cooker I would love the new one. I am hoping I got them all , as with all technology it goes wacky sometimes. Some double clicked and when I went bk on widget I couldn’t open up others to dbl ck to make sure. So fingers are crossed. With a disabled hubby this saves us tons of money. So to replace the old with new and have won it would put me over the moon…GOOD LUCK EVERYONE AND THANK YOU SPONSORS!
What a great group of sites to sign up with!
great idea I have been canning an freezing for years. I think its a lot of fun an we enjoy our bounty when it gets chilly out an cant have the fresh foods
Neat contest, neat website!
Wow! What a give away! Any item would be great but golly what a great offer! With all this…no excuse for not preserving!
Wore my old blue canner out and haven’t been able to get another. Like the page and the goodies would make the job of preserving so much easier.
I would love to win! Really need my own canning supplies. Just did 100 lbs of dilly beans and had to use my sisters. Thank u awesome give away!
My husband and I recently retired and are trying our hand at canning. We recently did several batches of pickles and beets, they were pretty good. I would love to win this canning package, so we can really branch out! Thanks for All your ideas, tips and recipes!
Oh yeah, what a great package!!! An awesome gift too 🙂
