Time To Look For Jars!

Social

Plan on putting any food up this fall? Cherries? Peaches? Green beans? Now is the time to be looking for those canning jars!

I have found my jars at:

  • Garage sales: ASK. People forget when they have been tucked in the cellar or under their basement stairs for 20 years.
  • Thrift stores.
  • Church rummage sales.
  • Elderly neighbors who don’t can anymore.

Be sure to run your finger over the rim for cracks, chips or bumps that would cause it not to seal when canning. Those jars are no good and should just be thrown away.

My preference is wide mouth because everything fits in a wide mouth jar, especially pickles/cucumbers.

  1. I sooooooooo agree! I have my super heavy duty shelf from ceiling to floor filled with canning jars just waiting to be filled. :0)

  2. I use canning jars through out the year, so I am always keeping my eyes out for them. Thanks for the tips on where to look.

    Happy Canning!

  3. GREAT advice!! We were blessed when we bought our home that someone thought that the over one hundred old canning jars in our basement were just junk!
