To help celebrate National Can It Forward Day on August 17th, the makers of Ball canning jars have generously provided 15 cases of those great looking blue canning vintage-style jars to give away.  Plus, I have 3 collector’s cases from the first 100 produced (with offical Certificate of Authenticity).  Follow these easy steps to enter to win your own case:

Anyone who signs up to get the Canning Season newsletter by August 17 – that’s the day of the National Can It Forward Day – will automatically be entered into a drawing to win a case of Ball Heritage Collection jars. These are those great looking blue jars Ball produced this year to mark the 100th anniversary of the launch of the “Perfect Mason Jar” in 1913.  (Those of you who already signed up for my newsletter are automatically entered.)

15 Lucky People Are Going to Win a Case of Ball Vintage Style Jars

I will give away one case each day up until Saturday, August 17th, Can It Forward Day.  Daily winners will be announced via Twitter. 

Three Additional People Will Win a Case From the First 100 Produced – With Certificate of Authenticity

When they started production of the blue Vintage Jars earlier this year, the Ball people put aside the first 100 cases as a super-collector’s edition.  They come with an offical Certificate of Authenticity that shows you they were part of the very first hundred cases run of this limited edition. I have three to give away! 

This picture is from the case the good people at Ball were kind enough to give to me!  My case was #51 in that first batch of 100.  Pretty cool, huh?
