Tattler Reusable Lids Winners!

It was so much fun to read all your comments- many of you have been canning your whole lives, others are brand new at this and then there are those of us who are in the middle.  Of those who left a comment to enter, we have 1,548 years of canning experience between us!

While I watched my mom can growing up (and distinctly remember the smell of stuffing cukes, garlic and dill into jars) I didn't begin canning on my own until 2003.  My first few projects were applesauce, wineberry jam (very seedy) and stewed tomatoes.  I started out slow but then, like many of you, I caught the canning bug and for a time, canned almost anything I could get my hands on.  But as the years went on and I learned what our family loved (and didn't) and as I've had less time, I've streamlined our projects.  While we do a smaller number of projects now, we do much bigger batches. As with many things in life, canning practices ebb and flow with the demands of life.  So whether you do a lot or a little- you're doing just fine.

On to the winners!  The two randomly chosen winners who will each receive a dozen regular and wide mouth Tattler Reusable Lids are...

4 months. Apricot jam, apricot rosemary jam, gooseberry sweet & sour sauce, tomato soup, applesauce, and mango puree. Not bad for my 1st year.


I've been canning since I was a child with my grandmother- so at least 30 years. Every summer we would pick raspberries in my grandmothers back yard and can jam. But we used wax to seal them. I learned to can with normal lids- not wax- about 10 years ago. And really got into canning about five years ago.

Congratulations!!  Please email me ( your name and mailing address and the lids will be sent right out to you.  A big thank you to the Tattler folks for the giveaway!

For those of you who have Swagbucks available, you can also find these lids on Amazon (Tattler Reusable Canning Lids).

Thank you all for entering and have a wonderful weekend!!

Just a friendly reminder, if you know me personally please try to refrain from using my name. There are those who may try to locate me, break into my pantry and steal my pickled beets. Thanks:-).
