Vintage-Inspired Green Canning Jars Giveaway

Last year, many of us went “gaga” over Ball’s limited edition blue canning jars. Well, I have great news: Ball has added spring green jars to their Heritage Collection, and they’ve offered to give a box of a them to one of my readers! This green canning jars giveaway also includes a set of their brand new BPA-free green lids :)

I own SO many glass jars: I have them in every shape and size imaginable. We drink out of them, plus of course they’re great for water-bath canning and for making lacto-fermented foods.

(Pictured here are the jars filled with my Spicy Lacto-fermented Pickles, the recipe for which can be found in my book One Simple Change.)

I also use them for storing many of the ingredients that I keep in my cupboards (such as dried beans, grains, nuts and seeds). Like the blue ones, these green jars are so pretty, and make a truly lovely addition to your home. Also like the blue jars, these are a limited edition. So, if you don’t win the giveaway, don’t wait too long to buy yourself some of these jars. They come in both pint and quart size…you can pick the size you prefer should you win the giveaway.

  2. I am planning to plant dill and cucumbers in my garden this year, so I think I would use these jars to try out some lacto-fermented dill pickles!! Yumm!

  3. I’d love to use these in my next round of preserving-some sort of pickle perhaps. Or maybe a winter jam/marmalade? Thanks for the opportunity!

  4. I would use them to store dry goods on my kitchen countertops. they’d look so pretty with cornmeal, dried beans, and pasta shells in them :)

  5. Honestly, I’m not sure how I’ll use them! I have so may Ball jars in so many sizes and I put all of m dry goods in them. But so far, my blue ones have proven too pretty to use. I display them with my glassware. I imagine the green ones will get the same treatment. Thanks for the contest!

  6. I use jars of all shapes and sizes for everything; I’ve even begun taking them to the co-op to fill bulk items, instead of using plastic bags, which I have no use for at home. I buy them in thrift stores, garage sales…. my family might say I have a problem, but just the other day, my boy reached in the cabinet where they’re kept and pulled one out to fill with a bag of snack nuts he’d brought home.

    These jars would first be used for canning, since they have new lids and I’d likely wait until berry season for jam or chutney.

  7. I am just learning how to can from a friend, can’t wait until my garden harvest this summer so i can put my lessons to work! This would be a wonderful and colorful addition to my green kitchen.

  8. I would use these for pickles, drinking, storing leftovers, etc! I have ball jars from buying local kombucha in the summer, and I love them for hot and cold liquids, leftover soup, etc.

    Actually, maybe if I had such pretty jars I’d finally start the whole “salad in a jar” packing lunch thing….

  9. We would drink out of them. I resisted buying the blue ones, but the green ones are the same exact color as the accent color in my kitchen.

  10. More jars is always a good thing! I would love to see what they would look like packed full of pickles. Looking forward to canning lots of those this summer.

  11. They are beautiful! The green color very much reminds me of spring. :) I would use the jars to motivate me to try canning- it has always intimidated me in the past.

  12. I use canning jars for so many things: canning (of course), storing dry goods, drinking from, making butter, lotion/soap dispensers, homemade soy candles, the list is endless!

  13. I’d love to win these green beauties!!! They need to come out with lots of colors just like the Fiesta plates!!! Simply gorgeous!!! :)

  14. I would love for these to be the jars that I use for my very first attempt at canning which is planned for this summer’s vegetable garden harvest :+)

  15. I think I love these even more than the blue! I’ll use them all over the house – in the pantry for dried beans and grains storage, in my seeing studio for buttons, as flower vases….

  16. I love this shade of green – what a wonderful way to herald in the verdant green of spring! Thai picked limes and astsara will look gorgeous in these jars!

  17. I would give these to my mom for her canning needs. She makes a fine pickle and she also loves pretty glass jars for decor purposes too.

  18. Thank you for the opportunity to enter this giveaway. I would have many uses for these canning jars. I’m planning a garden this year and there will be produce to can. I’m eager to try some fermented veggies as well and as pretty as these are I can see it as a centerpiece on my table with some lovely flowers.

  19. I love canning. All I have ever seen and bought are the clear jars. How much fun would it be to can something special in these green jars. Hope, hope I win.

  20. I have been looking for these green jars in our hardware store, but haven’t found any – yet. I still like the blue ones and use them for little vases around the house. The green would be just as pretty.

    Reply
  21. I’d love them for storing nuts and seeds in my pantry! I have a set of small ones but my nuts and all types of coconut rarely fit in them.

    Reply
  22. I have been obsessed with Luxardo cherries so I definitely want to make my own maraschino cherries this year… and probably some sauerkraut… and pickles (of course). But leaving a few of these with some wildflowers would be just lovely too!

  23. These are great–I can think of so many uses for them on top of the obvious one of cute canning jars. Thanks for the chance to win them!

  24. Having mostly made the switch from plastic to glass, I use my jars for every kind of storage I can think of (it’s great for bulk foods, loose teas, etc); I even use them for my green smoothies and juices. And, since I just made the investment for a boatload of heirloom seeds, I’m planning on ‘putting up’ this season, so they’d be great! Thanks for the giveaway. :-)

  25. This year I ordered lots of tomato seeds from Adaptiveseeds.com and plan to can lots when tomatoes start ripening. How pretty red tomatoes will look in those green jars! I love colored Ball jars. For years I collected them and other old colored glass jars and bottles to display almost as a wall of stained glass. One larger beautiful aqua ball jar is filled with white sand and holds a beautifully stark but elegant branch from a cherry tree. Instant art that can instantly be functional too. I’d be very happy to win these bottles that I’ll use as beverage glasses until tomato canning begins. Come to think of it, they will be nice votive candles on the patio too.

  26. We’re doing a CSA this Spring, and I plan to make tomato sauce with the fresh tomatoes, so these would be perfect! Love the color, too!

    Reply
  27. I plan to use the jars to can something, anything! I have never made my own jam, pickles, etc and I think it’s about time I give it a try.

  30. Hi winnie,
    I adore these jars as they remind me of my grandmother who came to Israel in the 1920’s and treasured a few of her mother’s Ball’s jars. These jars are just too pretty! I can imagine these beauties standing on my window sill…Ugh! Just looking at them makes me happy. Hope to get to the States at some point and finally have a Ball! I guess this give-away is not open for overseas readers of your blog but I just couldn’t help it. Love love love these!
