to Le Creuset and just about anything else you could want. So the starter set I am giving away looks a little something like this:
It comes with a big canning pot-holds 7 quart jars! A rack to hold those 7 jars in the pot, a strainer/colander, TONGS(very important!) two sets of them, a jar gripper thingy, a magnetic wand to fish lids out of hot water with and the all important mega funnel for pouring boiling hot sugar and fruit mixtures in to sterilized jars. I picked this out last week and one lucky ducky reader will be on their way to eating their harvest through the winter.
But then I discovered at a critical point in my jelly making season I was OUT OF PECTIN. Not good! I quickly ordered more and dropped them a note telling them it was critical and I was in DIRE need of good pectin. The wonderful Workstead Industries that sells Pomona Pectin understood my predicament and I had my pectin in 4 days. That is some customer service, just one of the MANY reasons I love Pomona Pectin. The others can be found here and here and here. Basically I love their pectin because you don't have to use the store bought pectin that requires you to use 5 cups of juice and 9 cups of sugar. Yes you read that right almost double the amount of sugar to juice. cough. I like that you can add as much or as little sweetener as you like. They encourage you to play around and make up your own recipes. And you can use honey or any other kind of sweet stuff you want. Yep they rock. I asked if they wanted to add a box of pectin to my canning set up giveaway and you know what? They sent me a box to share with you!
|I buy mine in 1/2 pound packs|
|this is a good start for a normal person|
That's a 9 piece canning set and a box of pectin that makes 2-4 batches of jelly or jam. Because I love you that's why!
