Time for Our October Drawing!

This month, in honor of my recent canning craze, I'm giving away a brand new set of canning supplies!  Starting with the funnel and going clockwise, here's what we've got in this kit:
1.  aforementioned funnel -- fits either standard or wide-mouth jars and allows you to fill 'em up without making a giant mess
2.  jar lifter -- this is an amazing tool!  It expertly grabs jars so that you can lower them into or pull them out of your hot water without burning yourself!
3.  head space-measurer/bubble-getter-outer -- (okay, those may not be technical terms)  The jagged edge has measurements from 1/4" to 1" to help you get your head space accurate.  The other end is used to poke around the edges of your filled jar and get out any air bubbles before sealing.
4.  magnetic lid lifter -- this tool has a magnet on the end and aids you in lifting hot lids out of hot water without burning your hands

Great stuff, huh? 
So, what do you have to do to get entered into this month's drawing?

Comment on this post by Sunday, answering this question:

What's your favorite thing you've NEVER canned? 
Yep, you read that right.  What do you wish you could put away fresh and have for later, but you've never actually tried to do it?


  1. Tomatoes! I love local tomatoes in the summer, but I've never canned anything, let alone tomatoes. I have the jars. Does that count?

  2. Since I have never canned anything, I have a whole list of things I would like to can but never have...salsa, pickles, your cinnamon pears, jelly, broth... Ok maybe that's not my list but a list off all the things you have done that I would love too. :)
