So we haven’t convinced you to join the Canning Across America project? You say you’re not sure how to begin, have never canned food before, nervous about food safety…?

How about this to get you started: The first people who pledge to host a canning party in the next few weeks (or teach someone the basics, if you already know how) will receive a free copy of a classic reference, The Ball Blue Book of Preserving. While supplies last, you’ll also get a coupon toward canning supplies. All it takes is sending an e-mail. Details are on the Canning Across America site here. And if y0u do go ahead with it, I’d love to hear back about how your jams or pickles or whatever you choose turns out.
