    Growing up in Eastern Europe saw my grandparents and parents making all sorts of preserves as a way of life and survivor. Coming here as a 16 year old girl prevented me from learning the technique and gaining the experience that has been passed through generations. Winning this set would allow me to get back to my roots and learn in order for my family to enjoy what I grew up on. I am looking to preserve veggies (pickles, side salads, beets), as well as fruit (jelly, compote). My mom is visiting early August and I am planning to explore the world of preserving.

    I love the idea, look, and taste of canned fruits and veggies. Both of my grandmothers were master canners. They canned everything and lived off their bounty for many months. Unfortunately, I was never present when they did their art, and now I have to rely on the techniques of others to learn how. Although we shouldn’t miss our opportunities to learn from those who have been placed in our lives, we should be thankful that we can find help when we need it. Thanks Williams-Sonoma for all of your wonderful tips and recipes for canning. Next to grandma, you’re the best!

    I am just starting to can. Having a new fruits and vegetables in my garden this year has inspired me to try canning. Have had good luck with pasta sauce I am excited to start trying more.

    I really want to try canning my favorite homemade bbq sauces. I’ve never done it before but I feel like its worth a shot! Aside from that, strawberries and peaches are always at the top of my list!

    It won’t matter what I preserve, everything will look awesome in this collection of canning gear.

    I am looking forward to really canning this year for the first time! I am 25 and have always helped my mom a little here and there but never really gotten into the spirit of canning. This year I am looking forward to canning jam for the first time and really diving into the nostalgia and love of preserving home grown veggies! :-)

    Can all you can, because the winter is coming, and the fresh fruits and vegetables will be gone.

    This will be my first year canning. My daughter and I are going to learn together! We are looking forward to canning jams and apple butter. It’s going to be a great bonding experience!
