Happy almost summer, everyone!  I’m loving the hot weather and getting dirty in the garden (especially after such a long, cold winter this year!), and even more than that, I’m excited that it’s almost canning season again!   Here in Maine, strawberries are pretty much the first fruit that we have locally available each summer.  The berries in our area are not quite ready yet (Ok, I admit, the photo is from a previous year ), but they will be any day!  My boys and I are so looking forward to our annual June visit to nearby pick-your-own strawberry fields to stock up on berries for the freezer and for jam!

Since it’s that time of year, and so many of you are into jam-making and canning, too, I am especially excited to let you know that Pomona’s Pectin is hosting an awesome giveaway, where you can win some great canning-related goodies!

Here’s what you can win:

A copy of my book  Preserving with Pomona’s Pectin

A box of Pomona’s Pectin

A case of six Orchard Road 8-oz jelly jars,

Perfect way to get the canning season started, right!?  All you need to do is to enter the giveaway by using the Rafflecopter widget below, and you can enter twice!  You just have to be a resident of the U.S. or Canada, and be at least 18 years old.  The winners will be randomly chosen, and there will be two of them!  Each winner will receive all three of prizes.   If you are one of the winners, you’ll hear from the folks at Pomona’s by email, and you’ll need to respond within 48 hours, or they’ll choose new winners.
