friday giveaway: ball canning kit

If you want to try your hand at canning, don't do what Dan and I did in the beginning and use regular old kitchen utensils and burn your hands and get frustrated. Canning requires a few essential tools, like proper tongs and a strainer. Just in time for summer preserves and pickles, the nice folks at Ball are going to send one lucky reader a canning kit with everything you need to get started.

To enter, please "like" Dinner Party on Facebook (if you haven't already) or follow me on Twitter and leave a comment here. I'll pick a random winner by 6 PM E.S.T. Friday. (Sorry, U.S. and Canada residents only.) Good luck!

**According to the Random Number Generator, Carly is the winner! (Email me please, Carly.) Thanks for playing--have a great weekend!

I'd love a canning kit. I'd finally have the impetus to check off canning tomatoes on my life list.

My friends and I will be having a canning party later this summer and it's the first time any of us have tried! I'd love to win so I can make tons of jams, chutneys, sauces, etc.

Great looking pickles you've got there. Canning is something I need to start doing once I have a little more room.
