Eco-Friendly Dissolvable Labels #ProductReview

I have been blessed with abundance  of fresh produce from the  garden in my backyard so I have been canning them and freezing them so I don't have to buy   stuff  during the  winter season.  I  mistly canned tomato sauce because I love using himemade sauce for my cooking.  
You can learn the process of canning in my post last year on how to properly can tomatoes.  I will also post later on how I freeze some of my  veggies.  
These photos were taken  on  the first batch of canning I did sometime in August.  I bought additional jars already because I ran out!
Wahing the tomatoes before I put the  boiling water in for the skin to tear off easy when peeling.  This year is my first time of canning roma tomatoes.  I usually just use it for  cooking but since there are so many of them this year, I decided to can them too.  
Here soaking in the hot water.
My kids really love  counting how many of the lids have popped already which means, it is sealed.  Right now, I have canned 42 quarts of tomato sauce, 8 pints of salsa, and freeze green beans and kale.  I still have many tomatoes to can, I think I will do one more and that's it.  I will just freeze  the remaining.
This is the first time I have canned so many  so I am labeling them  according to the dates so I know which one to use first.  I love this Maco dissolvable labels that I  got for review from Shoplet.  I received the amazing bundle of this eco friendly of  dissolvable labels.   They are easy biodegradable and no mess solution to temporarily label every day items.   This bundle comes with 3 different packs

  • MACMDL1805PK3 -       1 pack of Maco XL labels 8.5” x 11”
  • MACMDL1205PK3-       1 pack of Maco 2 1/3” x 3 3/8” rectangle labels
  • MACM83403PK6-       1 pack of Maco 1.5 x 2.5” Oval labels
You know   those labels  in the commercial bottles, they are hard to peel off so  I love  the fact that these labels easuly dissolves once it comes in contact with water.  I am very happy with that because I re-use all  my canning jars every year so I don't have to worry about  sticky residue.  It easily sticks with  plastic, wood, or glass.  Since it is bidegradable, you can safely run them through dishwasher without  worrying about clogging it with paper.  
 
So this is  my canned tomato sauce and salsa. I stored them at our storage area in the basement.  

 Shoplet have everything that you need for your business and home including office suppliesoffice stationarycleaning supplies,  and many others such as medical supplies .   Thank you once again Shoplet and Maco!

I would love to make my own tomato sauce! This must have been quite an experience.

Oh my, look at all those tomatoes! I wish I lived close to you so you can teach me how to do stuff like that. Way to go, frugal mom! You are showing your kids a good example.

Jessica Cassidy said...

Wow! Look at all the tomatoes you harvest Sis and tomato sauce too, that is so cool.

Nice idea on bottling your tomato sauce, I hope I can try it for my recipes :) I admire you for doing this :)

Jo said...

Dissolveable labels? First time I heard about it! Wow!!! You sure should sell those or give them as presents for this Christmas!!! SO awesome! I love how the labels look, your cans are so well-organized. Good job!

Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle said...

That's fantastic! I can't tell you much I hate trying to get a regular label off of my jars. I'll definitely be picking up some of these.

Amanda said...

I LOVE this! My grandmother is a canner and usually just writes on the jars with permanent marker. I will be forwarding this to her so that she can look into it. This would be so much easier since we always reuse the jars.

Jeannette said...

I would love to learn to can food. My friend cans all the time and I am trying to learn from her. I will tell her about these labels.

Deal Match Maker said...

Oh my .... so organized! You did an amazing job with those tomatoes. I have one plant and produced at least 100 fruits. We couldn't eat all of them so we gave them away

Those dissolvable labels sure sound convenient! As an Apartment Dweller I don't get to grow stuff, I sure wish I could, the best I can grow on a windowsill is herbs! Wait I have the herbs, you have the tomato! LOL :-)

I would love to have a pantry full of freshly canned tomatoes! And those labels sound awesome! I hate trying to get sticky labels off of things!

Jaime Nicole said...

This looks like an incredibly well-stocked canning room! The tomatoes look amazing, and the labels look like a great complement to the tomatoes! So jealous.

alexandria waning said...

I've never heard of dissolvable labels. I would love to make all my own stuff and jar it. Like homemade jam is one of my absolute fav things.

Annemarie LeBlanc said...

You did have a good harvest this year! I love how you put all those tomatoes into good use. You inspire me to start my own vegetable garden!

Ourfamilyworld said...

Wow, you can make a lot of sauce with the amount of tomatoes you have. I wish I have a space for a garden, so I can plant veggies, too.

papaleng said...

Oh my kamatis, so mapula and love how they are stored.

Ann B said...

I have always wanted to try doing this. I hate trying to wash off the labels. I love the idea of dissolvable labels./

Lynndee said...

Wow! That's a lot. I've never tried canning. Glad you labeled them. I've labeled all the containers in our kitchen cabinets too.

Tatanisha Pitts-Worthey said...

Oh my goodness, those tomatoes look fantastic! I am so jealous right now! lol How I wish I have a garden too where I could produce fresh veggies and fruits. I've wanted to try canning for so long!

Krystal Butherus said...

Okay that is absolutely amazing. I wish I did more canning!

Bradley Finnearty said...

Homemade food is the best. You put a lot of love into your canning and the labels just add to that. I have never heard about those before.
