Weck Canning Jars


Can a girl be in love with canning jars? Curvy lines and simple shapes have certainly seduced me. I'm on a canning mission this summer. I plan to can strawberry jam, blueberry jam, maybe raspberry, and definetly some tomato sauce. I planted 9 tomato plants in my very small garden including 2 San Marzanos (makes the best sauce). For as many years I can remember I've canned with the good old Ball jars. True american classics but I am looking to switch things up around here. You can order Weck jars through Weck's website or purchase a limited selection from Heath Ceramics. Which shapes will I choose?

  3. I know the feeling of getting giddy at the sight of canning jars. it's a weird sickness, isn't it?! Do those weck jars reseal as well as the ball jars?

  6. I'm feeling a bit covetous. I've always used Mason or Ball, but they're really not pretty. But who can afford these?

  7. I hear ya sarah k they are a bit pricer.
    I was thinking about buying few that I plan to make tomato sauce in. The jam might stay in the good old ball jars. Ball jars can be cute if you cover the top of the lid with a pretty fabric. I like variety of shapes Weck offers. Helps deal with many different canning scenarios.

  8. I remember thinking about those last summer. But, I didn't have a kitchen last summer. Thanks for the reminder!

  9. Really the Weck jars are not that expensive when you figure in that they last a lot longer. I have tons of canning jars and the Weck are by far the sturdest and most durable. They do not break! You will get years of service so figure in your cost over time and they are very reasonable. Plus they really are gorgous. I have a metal shelf in my kitchen which holds my pretty appliances and some canning jars. Everyone goes ga-ga over the Weck jars. They really are beautiful!
