Join us for #CanningLive

Interested in canning? Want to talk to a canning expert live? Then join us as we live tweet the canning process on September 27, 2014 from 1pm to 3pm EST during #CanningLive.

This tweet-up party will include five avid tweeters (and food enthusiasts) gathered in my kitchen to make and preserve applesauce and apple butter. During the event, we'll tweet home canning processes, discuss equipment and provide instructions and tips plus give away prizes contributed by Ball.

In addition to myself, tweeters include: BG_Garden, HandyHelen, BethBillstrom, and MaggieGrows

Rather than a traditional chat with posted questions, the group will be tweeting while we're canning. We'll take questions and post the preservation process via real-time pictures, videos and instructions. Followers can watch the process, join in the conversation and ask questions using #CanningLive.

And you can win a prize!
Throughout the event we'll be giving away prizes: 
  • Coupons for a free case of any Ball canning jar
  • Ball Blue Books
  • Canning jar lifter
Prizes will be given away in a random drawing of #CanningLive participants. To qualify, you must leave a blog comment below with your twitter handle or in the #CanningLive Facebook group. If you win a prize, please respond within 24 hrs of my request for shipping information to prevent prize forfeit.  

So what are you waiting for? Register for a prize and be sure to join us for a fun day of #CanningLive!

  4. Hi Susanne, sunflower2014sb here :) How cool you all get to can together! I have been canning for 25 years, and always enjoy learning something new. Maybe that's intermediate level ? Anyways looking forward to #canninglive.
