Here's an update on Muth Jars...and we need your opinion as what to run in the future . . .

4 OUNCES - Last national supply had a mis-print "PUPE" in one cavity (out of 8) of the mold. The rest were "PURE". SUPPLY has now dried up, we are SOLD OUT as of today. Future looks hazy for these; we have been asked to help make more with the mold fixed. It would probably be December before we'd have them again. If another supply house has them, snatch them up now! We have a whole pallet (160 cases) of "PUPE" if anyone is interested ;) . . .

8 OUNCES - National supply is dwindling, future uncertain.

1 POUND - NEW! Our supply will be good, starting September 2010.

2 POUNDS - Any interest? This would be a new jar, not available since the original

I'm interested in them all. I have sold a lot of the 4 and 8 and always wished I had a 1 pound and 2 pound. My guess is that the 1 pound would sell better than the 2 as I sell it as a high end product beause of the cost of the jars, but many peopel buy it as much for the jar as the honey...

I love the 4 oz. jars. and have sold a ton of them -- especially for wedding favors and Christmas baskets. I would love to see them come back.

how big is the opening on the 1 and 2lb versions...if a spoon could get in there, it would be easier to sell.

They probably could have made another typo that wouldn't have been much better . . . :pinch:

For the 1 POUND, it fits some of my spoons fine, which are 1.25". The 2 POUNDS would have the same opening, so the same cork could be used.

The one pounder would be very cool. I am currently talking to a glass blower about having some custom hand blown bottles made for top shelf clients...what ever that means;). Also something else I do is after filling a cork top bottle i dip it in wax to seal the cork to the jar.

Muth jars are very beautiful.
A good friend of mine gave me a real antique one (and no it doesn't say 'PUPE', lol!) It's a one pound and here is a photo I took on my kitchen counter a couple of days ago, with some lettuce and kohlrabi freshly picked from our (bee pollinated) garden.

I do not understand why the "future is hazy" for any of these jars. People love them, and they have been around forever. With new routers it is pretty easy to make a mold, even though there already seem to be molds in existence for 3 of the 4 sizes.
