With fresh, seasonal fruits and vegetables readily available this time of year, homemade, preserved gifts are a natural and heartfelt choice. For those who need help getting started, the Ball® Home Preserving Starter Kit has all the essentials; a preserving rack, 3 Ball® Pint Jars with two-piece lids and bands, basic preserving accessories, and a quick preserving & recipe guide.
And, with hundreds of delicious recipes available in the Ball® Blue Book Guide to Preserving, there is a perfect choice for teachers, colleagues, friends and family members. Fresh fruit spreads are always a favourite choice from a traditional Grape Jam to a unique Silky Apricot Butter – both perfect to gift with home baked bread. For those on the list who like a bit of heat, try the Singapore Chili Sauce or a fresh Zesty Salsa which makes for a fun, colourful present.
