This Saturday, August 17th, is National-Can-It-Forward Day and Ball® is celebrating BIG. This year's event will star Food Network's Chopped host, two-time Emmy and James Beard award-winning chef and cookbook author, Ted Allen.
Ball® has been producing canning jars and other supplies for over 100 years. In fact, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of its "Perfect Mason" jar, Ball® is issuing vintage-inspired blue Heritage Collection pint jars in limited quantities.
|We've had a bumper crop of blackberries this year and these jars will be perfect for blackberry jam!|
The jars are period-correct blue and are the first in a series of limited edition jars that Ball® will be issuing. I have a set of the first in the series to give away to a lucky reader!
