While you are watching they will be answering your questions in real time. As you would expect there are segments on canning, but I'm most excited about the sessions exploring alternative uses for Ball canning jars. They will also be introducing their new drinkware line!
Oh, and then there's the matter of attempting a Guinness World Record for the World’s Largest Mason Jar Mosaic!
I was excited to receive a package from Ball this week containing pint and quart jars manufactured to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the Ball brothers’ “Perfection” Jar .
I also received one of the new drinkware products - the Ball Mason Jar Infuser.
And look at this - it's perfectly color coordinated to go with the beautiful green tint of the Anniversary Jars!
I'm kind-of a raspberry freak so I couldn't wait to throw some in and start infusing some water. Now I know Mr. Quirky won't drink my water, because he hates raspberries!
Then I took advantage of my new supply of Ball jars to try out one of the hundreds of alternative uses for Ball jars.
A salt storage jar! No more oh so tacky navy blue paper canisters of salt. All you have to do is cut the top off the salt canister and replace the disk from the Ball jar lid.
Best salt canister ever!
Isn't it beautiful?
I love my green Ball jars. Thank you Ball for sending them to me! And thank you for offering me extra jars so that I can give some away to my readers.
Did you hear that?????
I'm giving away one case of quart jars and one case of pint jars! The green ones!
