I bought a Ball 1884-style water bath canning set today. It was on clearance at Tractor Supply Company. $20.00 off! I've been wanting to learn how to do this for a while and when I saw this the other day, I knew I wanted it! Comes with everything I need, other than the jars which I already have! Now to decide what I want to can first! And, I'm so glad it is blue spackle enamelware. I love that old style! Almost as much as I love cast-iron cookware! Though I wish that half the utensils weren't plastic. Want to find metal or glass replacements eventually.
