Yes You Can House Party

I was selected a few weeks back to Host a Canning Party through House Party. is a website you can register with to apply to host a variety of different parties that promote different products. This party was for Ball Canning Supplies.

Once you are selected House Party mails you a package of goodies and coupons to use at your party.
This kit included a Canning discovery kit, pectin, funnels, mashers, recipe book and prizes and bags for guests.

The Mom's were more interested in snacking on the strawberries than mashing them : )

slicing and dicing

Getting Ready to Can!

Final Product!  Not bad for a first try!

Me and Ande with the yummy stuff at work!

Check out Ball stuff at Walmart.  Not that expensive and a lot easier than I thought! I have always wanted to learn and I am super excited that I can do it!

Here is a recipe from the Ball Website that requires little work.
