Checking out the Bernardin Home starter Kit & Drinking Mugs (Giveaway) CAN

Summer is here and for me that means two things. More time spent out on the deck enjoying my family and yard and working in the garden. Both are things I truly love and hope to have lots of time for this season. I also hope the weather is kind and allows this to happen. A few weeks back we started our garden for the year. We had to start from scratch and dig out an area, add soil and pull out weeds and rocks. 

We planted a bunch of veggies both by seed and plant. Many have started growing nicely. I know from previous years, there will be a few weeks of sudden growth. So much tomatoes and peppers that I will not be able to keep up. But this year I have a plan. I am going to make salsa and can a  lot of it. I am also going to can jam and whatever else that may inspire me at the time. 

Bernardin has sent me everything I need to get started with my canning, when the time is right. I received a ‘Home canning starter kit’ that includes a rack, a 21 quart canner, jar lifter, funnel, lid lifter, bubble remover, 4 pack Collection Elite decorative jars with lids, Original Crystals pectin and recipe booklet. My grandmothers use to do a lot of canning and I have great memories of helping them in the kitchen. I am excited to get started with my children.

Berries seem to be doing very well this year with a fruit stand on every corner. It will be great to stock up and make some jam for the family. Obviously I will need to get myself some additional cans, but this will get me started. I have never canned anything before but hear it is not so hard. 

Our exclusive Home Canning Starter Kit is an all-in-one kit perfect for the first timer or upgrading your current equipment. An instructional DVD CD featuring our Executive Chef Emerie Brine. He demonstrates how easy it is to prepare one of the most popular jams, Strawberry. 

Since it is still going to be a bit before I get canning, I am enjoying something else I received. A set of four drinking mugs from Bernardin. These may be my fave mugs in the house!

About Bernardin

“For 100 years, home canning has been an exclusive focus for Bernardin Ltd. It’s no wonder Bernardin continues to be Canada’s trusted leader in home canning products. 

Home canning has always been the best way to preserve the natural goodness of our foods. Today home canning is even more attractive to Canadians because of their growing concern and interest in knowing the source of the food we eat. We see this thinking everyday in the healthy lifestyle concerns, organic produce, and the proliferation of farmers’ markets. It’s also evident in the popularity of the 100 mile diet and locally grown foods, the enhanced retail produce sections and the overwhelming popularity of home gardening. “

I bet you have some plans for the summer too! Maybe something that includes time in your backyard with your family? Maybe you started a garden and will need to do some canning? If so you will want to enter this fabulous giveaway.
