I've been busy preparing for an education event that I'm taking part in this weekend. It's an event that I've attended (and taught at) regularly and I've not missed it over the past 4 years. I got to thinking today about how much I wanted to do to share this information with those that I know would love it and I just had a spur of the moment thought... Ready??

Question: "Hi Kellene, Your site helps me so much, thank you. I know you preserve chocolate and candy. Can I do that with oxygen absorbers in mason jars? if so, should they be unpackaged, like M&Ms?
