Can-It-Forward Day: Prepare, Can & Share


Host a jam-making party at home with your friends and family, or join Megan from FoodPreserving.Org (farmer's market location TBC) on Sunday August 17 to see how to use a boiling water canner, how easy it is to make delicious jam (including taste-testing) and the important part of the day: can-it-forward by giving a jar to someone special!

The mixed berry jam recipe (and also some labels I’ve designed) will be linked below for you to print and prepare before the day (we'll add them at the beginning of August). Then you can get busy canning and share your stories and photos of your creations on the Food Preserving.Org Facebook
page on August 17 (or email your photo/message to
You can host your own canning party at home, a friend’s house or at your workplace. Canning is something that anyone can do when they have a great recipe to follow! You can follow along on the day on the Food Preserving.Org
Facebook page - keep an eye out for tips, tricks, flavour variations and some special PRIZES on the day!

The MOST IMPORTANT STEP is to can-it-forward! Print off extra recipes to share, share your photos on your Facebook profile and give away a jar to someone at your canning party, a workmate, neighbour, family member, local farmers market stall holder - it's up to you who receives your jar!

If you're busy on August 17 and just don't have time to make a batch of jam, you can still join in the Can-It-Forward part by giving a jar of home canned goodies away.
If you’re lucky enough to live in Perth, Western Australia you can come along and join me in on the day. From 7.30am until 11.30am we will be canning and creating. We’ll be making several batches of berry jam (lots of new flavours) and you might also get a sample jar to enjoy! No bookings will be made for this demonstration - come visit the market, grab your local fruit & veg and come say hi!
