Weck jar giveaway from www.healthygreenkitchen.com

Have you discovered Weck glass jars yet? They’re beautiful and so very wonderful to have around the kitchen. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes and can be used for storing a great many things: from herbs and spices to nuts and seeds and dried beans to fresh juice. You can also make and store homemade body products in them (this is a tangerine sugar scrub, the recipe for which I will share in a separate post)…

…and you may water-bath can in them, too. Below you see tangerine vanilla marmalade (yup, I do love tangerines). The recipe is from Marmalade: Sweet and Savory Spreads for a Sophisticated Taste.

One of the best things about these jars is that they are made of thick glass to withstand boiling and sterilization. Also, the glass lids are immune to rusting and may be used many times (and since they are made of glass and not aluminum, there is none of the BPA coating that is found on metal canning jar lids). If you are interested in canning in Weck jars, be sure to familiarize yourself with the these guidelines from Weck. Also, please read this helpful post from Marisa over at Food in Jars.

I love Weck jars, but they are a little pricey. So I was really excited when Mighty Nest asked if they could send some jars to me. What’s Mighty Nest?

Mighty Nest offers an incredibly comprehensive selection of beautiful, durable items that are 100% free of harmful chemicals: it’s the perfect place to shop for many of your green living needs.

    You have no idea how much I’ve wanted these jars. I do not store food in plastic and it’s so hard to find good quality glass containers.

    If I win, these will be a surprise gift to my sister in Connecticut, who recently mentioned that she wanted to try canning.
    I have been canning for decades and have a large assortment of Mason jars. I am hoping that we can trade. I cannot eat all the canning I do so I give away lots. If we make different recipes we could double our product!

    These look great. Our plastic containers are showing their age and I’ve been keeping my eye open for replacements.

    Can’t have too many clear containers!
