Statue of Roman Goddess Pomona

Happy August everyone!  Wow, what a month of bounty! Broccoli and cauliflower are in the freezer, the green beans and cukes are flourishing,  the raspberries and peas are finally slowing down, the blackberries are almost ready, and the apples are coming along beautifully. I’ve been harvesting and preserving like crazy, and I still can’t keep up.  It’s good problem to have of course! Speaking of bounty, I recently learned a bit about the old Roman goddess Pomona.  She was associated with the care, cultivation, and flourishing of fruit trees, and as a goddess of fruitful abundance, was traditionally celebrated on August 13.   Pomona’s Pectin is named after the goddess Pomona, and in honor of her and her special day, Pomona’s Pectin is holding a giveaway!

Here’s what you can win:

                                      A copy of my book  Preserving with Pomona’s Pectin

                                                         A box of Pomona’s Pectin4_oz_Canning_Jars (1)                                   Twelve regular mouth 4-oz canning jars (courtesy of Fillmore Container)



Good stuff, right?  If you want a shot at winning, here’s all you need to do:
