ball pint wide mouth jars
I love, love, love this product in the pint wide mouth size, we canned salsa in them and they worked perfectly for the salsa. we also canned diced tomatoes in the pint wide mouth size and are planning to can carrots, peas, diced potatoes, and corn in the same size. The wide mouth makes them way easier to get your items into and out of and my kids will eat salsa right out of the jar, as they allow room for dipping your chips into. I will be buying several more cases of these in the near future. They arrived today and the only complaint I have is that it was raining and they were left outside on my porch and the box got wet and soggy, but the jars were in perfect shape and no broken jars which concerned me. very satisfied customer, and I will be getting more of these. Oh, it took only 3 days to get them here. Satisfied customer.
Mason Jars that ARE Freezer Safe!
After much research, I purchased these exact jars. Why? It seems that some mason jars, and even some "Ball" brand jars, are not "freezer safe". Which I did not know. I assumed as many do, that canning mason jars were SAFE to freeze. I have attached a photo of the ones that are, and are not safe for freezers. I wish to create smoothies the evening before work, and the gym, and freeze them and take out in the morning, and I certainly did not want them exploding glass in my freezer! These are perfect, and a great sale price, and they ARE, indeed "freezer" safe for canning fruits, vegetables, making smoothies, etc. Great buy!
Ball Canning Jars
This season I was very late in purchasing my canning supplies. It wasn't until the late fall that I had items that I wanted to can. Unfortunately, the usually places that I would purchase Ball canning jars no longer had the sale price. They had the premium price of $12.00 plus dollars for 12 jars. I lucked out when I went to Walmart. Their prices were reasonable and they had stock. I was able to get both jelly jars, quilted, tall and short pints, as well as wide mouth and regular pint size jars for canning pears, apples and green beans and meats. Next, I needed pectin and pickling spices, but, I didn't want to pay the $4.00 and $3.00 that my other sources sold their pectin and spices for. Walmart had all my canning products and supplies that I needed for my out of season canning needs at a reasonable price. A real life saver. From now on I will shop at Walmart for my canning needs first. With Ball jars available at Walmart, I am certain that my canning will be successful, safe, and last for a long time to come. Ball jars are the quintessential backbone when it comes to canning, a quality and name that has last for generations.
Excellent for Making Cat Food
I make my own cat food using a raw chicken recipe found on a cat nutrition website. I use these jars to freeze the cat food for long term storage. These jars are freezer safe because they are wide mouth, but make sure not to fill them beyond the fill line at the top of the jar, especially if you are freezing something completely liquid. I recommend getting the plastic storage jar lids, sold separately, for these made by Ball instead of using the tin canning lids because those are not air tight the way the plastic ones are. These jars are of excellent quality. I freeze cat food in them and later on run them through the dishwasher and each time they are like brand new. I've even dropped a full jar with frozen cat food in it twice and they've never broken. I've never had any jars break during the freezing process as well. I think its because I make sure to leave about a half inch of air space before screwing on the plastic lid and putting them in the freezer. These are even wonderful for storing dry goods in as long as you use the plastic lids. I keep one jar in my pantry with popcorn kernels and it looks so pretty. I recommend these highly, and for the amount of years I'm sure these will last me they are well worth the price!
By far my favorite brand of jars!
To be honest I bought these to make for crafts. However last fall I found myself canning for the first time and needed to purchase some jars. I went to my local walmart and purchased both store brand and ball jars. Every one of the ball jars held up! Not one of them broke! The store brand jars would break while I was sterilizing them in boiling water, some even broke while canning. I was very disappointed. When it comes to glass jars you do get what you pay for! I prefer the wide mouth jars as well just because I can put my hand in the jar and reach to the bottom to clean them. I highly recommend Ball jars!
