Earlier this month, Newell Brands, makers of Ball® Fresh Preserving Products, invited me to Indianapolis to learn how to can. I’ve always wondered about canning, and I’ve always been too intimidated to try on my own, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity to learn! As it turns out, home canning isn’t as complicated as it seems.
On Friday, Jessica (canning expert and star of the brand’s YouTube videos) showed us how to make a berry jam. On Saturday, I learned how to make this corn and cherry tomato salsa in their test kitchen on Saturday—on Facebook Live, no less.
My live cooking session landed on the brand’s annual #CanItForward day, which is a day to learn more about canning and how to preserve summer’s harvest to enjoy all year long.
