Home Canning Utensil Set
A few years ago, fascinated by what you might call the urban homesteading movement, I decided to try out home canning. Knowing my penchant for dropping new hobbies, I didn't want to invest in an expensive, space-hogging pressure canner, so I picked up a small utensil set to use with my large stockpot instead. The perfect gift to inspire any would-be home preserver, this kit by Ball® contains everything you need to experiment with home preservation safely and and easily, without clogging your cabinets: a headspace measure tool, a wide-mouth funnel to fill jars without spilling, and jar and lid lifters to help you handle hot equipment.
