cDid you know that August is National Canning Month? And did you know that Ball celebrated it's anniversary this week? Gee, it's almost like we planned this or something!
It sure has been a great week! We're so glad everyone joined in on the fun. We had lots of great recipes you all shared with everyone. The canning post contest winner is over at Ott,A's page. Congrats to everyone who entered. Whether you're an old pro or a canning newbie, I hope everyone was able to find some useful information here. We'll keep the Facebook page up as a resource for everyone and future Canning Weeks (do I see a sequel coming??).
We had over 300 entries for the fabulous giveaways! And I know you're all waiting for the winners to be announced, so here they are:

A HUGE thank you to Jane from Make Ahead Meals for Busy Moms for being our guest judge (and giving out her cookbook to the winner!!!) and promoting our canning efforts.
Don't forget you can also buy her book on Amazon! I just bought a copy for my mom. It was supposed to be a surprise, but if she reads this, then I guess she'll know it's coming!
I hope everyone enjoyed this as much as we did!
