Ball® FreshTECH Automatic Jam & Jelly Maker + Giveaway {99.99 ARV}

I love summer and the abundance of fresh fruits and veggies that we grow for our family.  Ball brand canning products sent us the FreshTECH Automatic Jam & Jelly Maker so that we could preserve some of our fruits to use all year.  The FreshTECH Automatic Jam and Jelly Maker allows consumers to create fresh jams and jellies in under 30 minutes with the push of a button - when it would normally take an hour on the stove top.

There are many times when I don't have a huge amount of berries or peaches, but I still don't want them to go bad.  The Automatic Jam and Jelly Maker makes canning them so easy.  I used peaches the first time.  I simply sprinkled the pectin around the bottom.

I then added the peaches that I had chopped and mashed.  Next, all I had to do was pus the jam button and enter.  It immediately started mixing itself.

After a few minutes, it beeped to let me know it was time to put in the sugar, which I slowly added as it continued to stir.

After that, I put the top back on until it beeped again letting me know it was done.  I transferred the peaches into hot Ball jars.  The instructions have three ways to can and I picked two.  I decided to put one jar in the refrigerator so that we could enjoy it right away, and I put the two other jars in freezer so they will be good for a year.  I didn't do the traditional hot water bath so that I could put them in the cabinet this time.

We eat a lot of jam and jelly, so this has really come in handy for all of our extra fruits.  All I have to do is chop them, and the Automatic Jam & Jelly Maker takes care of the rest!

Win It
Ball brand is giving one of my readers a Ball® FreshTECH Automatic Jam & Jelly Maker{$99.99 ARV}
