New Food Preservation Equipment On The Market

At the Greenwood County Fair last month, I saw quite a few entries in Open Class Food Preservation. Here’s a few new items on the market that could help you in preserving your harvests.

If you are looking to start some canning projects but don’t want to invest a lot of money, here’s a suggestion from K-State Research and Extension’s Rapid Resource Center and Karen Blakeslee.

Check out the new starter kit available for first-time canners. The makers of the popular Ball and Kerr canning products, Newell Brands, put a kit together to help you become a successful canner! It includes four half-pint jars, a silicone rack to fit in a stock pot, a packet of Classic pectin, a jar lifter, a headspace/ bubble remover tool, and a jar funnel. It also includes step by step instructions to help you learn how to use these pieces safely. The silicone rack is a little smaller than a standard wire rack. It is used for water bath canning only. They call the 9-piece starter kit an “all in one solution for first time canners”. It is available online and possibly at a local retailer that sells canning products. I spotted the kit on the shelves at Orschlen’s and Wal-Mart earlier this season.
