    Comments from a visitor on September 30, 2011: "I will never take my child to the Maurys apple orchard in crown point indiana. They were the absolute rudest people i have ever met! They acted as if the children were a nuisances to them. They yelled at the children repeated amount of times about playing in the hay. To the point they made a little girl cry. She walked up to the little girl ripped the hay out of her hand through it on the ground and in her face said, "I am not going to tell you or anyone else to stop playing with the hay". The most ridiculous thing i have ever seen. It was a field trip for my sons pre-k class, it is 3 and 4 year old, newsflash you have hay they are going to play with it they are really not the interested about u telling them about a piece of farm equipment or certain apples!!!! the attention span is not that long! then the other female under the blue tent screamed about the hay as well saying she was allergic, well why be around hay if that's the case. Also, she threatened the kids to tell there parents to keep it quiet as well!!!!! Parents were so angry they grab there children and left and the rest of us including the parents were walking on egg shells! i can believe these people work with children everyday!!!!!! "

Prices for U-Pick as of 15 Oct 2011: Bags (half-bushel each) are $.50, green delicious are $15/bag (though they had a 2-for-1 special running), Jonathan and red delicious are $20/bag, and Jonagold are $25/bag. Some people brought their own baskets. Peach season is apparently in July/August. We really enjoyed this orchard--it wasn't crowded and there is plenty to do nearby as far as food and "small town" shopping. Thanks for the great web site! "

Home Canning Kits

Features:

Ball Enamel Waterbath Canner, Including Chrome-Plated Rack and 4-Piece Utensil Set

* All the tools you need for hot waterbath canning - in one comprehensive set!
* Complete with 21 1/2 qt. enameled waterbath canner
* Also includes canning rack, funnel, jar lifter, jar wrencher, bubble freer, tongs and lid lifter.
* A Kitchen Krafts exclusive collection.

This is the same type of standard canner that my grandmother used to make everything from applesauce to jams and jellies to tomato and spaghetti sauce. This complete kit includes everything you need and lasts for years: the canner, jar rack, jar grabber tongs, lid lifting wand, a plastic funnel, labels, bubble freer. It's much cheaper than buying the items separately. You'll never need anything else except jars & lids (and the jars are reusable)! There is also a simple kit with just the canner and rack, and a pressure canner, if you want to do vegetables (other than tomatoes). To see more canners, of different styles, makes and prices, click here!
Don't forget the Ball Blue Book!

Lids, Rings, Jars, mixes, pectin, etc.

Need lids, rings and replacement jars?  Or pectin to make jam, spaghetti sauce or salsa mix or pickle mixes?  Get them all here, and usually at lower prices than your local store!

Get them all here at the best prices on the internet!
