Canning is a great way to preserve local produce and sustain the summer harvest year round.
To teach cooks the simplicity of canning, Ball brand canning is hosting the third annual National Can-It-Forward Day on Saturday, August 17. National Can-It-Forward Day allows home cooks to connect via a national circuit of canning parties and social media activities. New and experienced canners can participate in a live webcast of canning demos where viewer questions will be answered in real-time.
