Every year in the late summer and early fall, I find a way to preserve the extra vegetables and fruit that I grow in my garden or get from the local market gardens and most of the time, I do that by canning. From my family’s favourite plum jam made with plums from the tree in our back yard to pickled beets made with the surplus of fresh beets I grow in the garden, there are all kinds of tasty and delicious ways to make sure we can enjoy the bounty of summer all year long.
And when it’s time to start canning, I’ve always trusted Bernardin for high-quality canning supplies including mason jars, pectin, lids and canners. But this year, there’s no reason to wait for autumn to enjoy Bernardin! The company has recently come out with some fun new products perfect for cooling down on a hot summer day.
My personal favourite is the adorable new Bernardin Drinking Mugs. Everyone knows there’s nothing trendier than serving food or drinks in canning jars and these new mugs from Bernardin make that even easier! While I’ve been using them for beverages so far, I also think they’d be perfect for serving a salad or a dessert at an outdoor party. Guests will enjoy the stylishness of the presentation, and the handle on the jar makes eating the food even easier!
Bernardin has also created a clever line of Sip & Straw lids and straws perfect for turning either the Bernardin Drinking Mugs or standard Bernardin canning jars into smoothie containers! I got the chance to give these a try after whipping up some smoothies yesterday and they are so handy! The wide straws are perfect for thicker beverages such as shakes, and the lids make drinking easy with minimal mess. Plus the smoothies just look so cute served in the jars with their metal rings!
To help you enjoy a little summer refreshment, Bernardin is very generously offering one lucky Mommy Kat and Kids reader a set of eight Bernardin Drinking Mugs and a set of eight Sip & Straw Smoothie Lids and Straws, a $30 value! To enter to win, just leave a blog comment about what you’d serve first in your new Bernardin Drinking Mugs.
These mugs are such a fun and easy way of adding a little retro style to your summer tableware and they’re the perfect size for all kinds of things. Paired with the fun smoothie lids and straws, my boys especially love using them for fresh fruit milkshakes! Check out these new summer products from Bernardin and add some extra fun to your summer décor!
