    Hello all!!!

    I would like to find some jars to put my honey in but I do not like the mason jars, espeically Kerr because they have writing on the glass. I would like a jar or bottle that is smoothly rounded.

    Glass is good for now. Not ready for plastic yet.

    Quite a few people just want a quart of honey in a mason canning jar,and dont seem really happy to get a state of the art plastic honey jar.So for those customers,one would do well to pack up some quart jars(new of course).Look for the seasonal sales.

    Loggermike; You'd be surprised at the quality of glass jars that you can get at Goodwill, Salvation Army or Various other stores along the same line as Thirft stores. Value Village and Goodwill up here, I've gotten qt canning jars, Kerr, Ball and Mason, for as little as $0.25 apiece, I just run them thru the dishwasher once or twice and buy the lids, fill and go. Of course using common sense if I smell a strong order I don't buy them.

    Just thinking about some of the nasty stuff I have put in mason jars makes me worry about recycled jars.I just wont put honey in anything but new containers.

    Cool

    We look for sales of the canning/mason jars at the local Big Lots and stock up. Last time we did this (last year), they averaged out to about .33 cents/jar.

    We also give a .25 cent credit for jars returned by our customers. Once sterilized and with a new lid, they're good as new, we save a little on the price of glass, and we figure that we're doing our part for "Mother Earth" by recycling.

    My local Lions Club has a big junk sale once a year and I bought 18 dozen mason jars for $15. Hid them all in the garage before my wife got home because I knew she would think I was crazy when I told her. Yep, she did. Anyhoo, I will sterilize them in the canning boiler and I'm set for a very looooong time.
