Fun Fact: Did you know that enough Ball Canning Jars were produced last year to circle 90% of the earth?
Jarden Home Brands is so excited to announce the very first annual International Can-It Forward Day on August 16! If you are a Ball Canning lover like myself or maybe you are a complete novice, this is the perfect time for you to connect online and in person with renowned chef and Bravo’s Top Chef Judge – Hugh Acheson at Brooklyn Borough Hall Farmer’s Market.
Chef Acheson and other experts will be on hand to perform canning demos of home canning recipes and answer viewer questions. Throughout the country, 25 farmer’s markets will be hosting Can-It Forward Day celebrations! In addition to canning demos, you can also check out crafting, and herb gardening demos, as well as check out Ball’s new drink-ware line!
The highlight of the day will surely be when International Can-It Forward Day guests attempt the Guinness World Record for the World’s Largest Mason Jar Mosaic!
