Vintage-Inspired Blue Canning Jars Giveaway

I’ve got a fun little giveaway for you, my friends :)

Limited Edition Blue Ball Jars at Healthy Green Kitchen

Ball just released these limited edition vintage-inspired blue jars, and they’ve offered to give a box of them (6 jars in all) to one of you! These jars are part of the Ball Heritage Collection and they’re really beautiful.

Ball Blue Jars Giveaway at Healthy Green Kitchen

I don’t know about you, but I am more likely to drink lots of water when it’s in a pretty glass, and these blue jars are just perfect! They’re also terrific for decorating, canning, as a vase for flowers, etc. The jars are pint-sized and they have small openings, which makes them just right for covering with EcoJarz (stay tuned: I am going to be giving away a few of these awesome eco-friendly jar toppers very soon). The lids the jars come with are 100% BPA-free, as well.

  2. My most favorite color. I can just see my fresh mango salsa in these jars. And the mango tree is looking like it will be loaded again this year! Namaste.

  3. oh how beautiful are they?! I’d say they’d make the perfect gift jars, but I think I’d have to keep them all for myself :)

  4. I already collect vintage blue jars, and find them fabulous for kitchen storage (assuming the lids aren’t too rusted). These would be a perfect addition to my growing collection.

    Thanks for offering them.

  5. Hello! I have always loved the blue canning jars. Would be thrilled to win a set! With spring around the corner I know I’m going to have a lot of canning to do :)

  6. We drink all our water at home out of Ball jars and these are extra pretty! My favorite is to drop half a lemon into the jar and then fill with sparkling water (we use a Sodastream and one bottle fills a large Ball jar perfectly.) We drink so much more water this way!

  10. They’re beautiful! Perfect for drinking some sweet tea on the porch once the Milwaukee snow leaves the ground for good!

  11. What a joy to see these jars. My youngest daughter and I cook together and these would make a fun new foray into canning for us.

  12. I love jars! I use them to store bulk grains, nuts, etc. on the countertop since they’re so pretty. These would be amazing to try out!

    Reply
  13. Wow!!! I’m in love! These jars remind me of the ones that my great grandma and grandma used to use for canning and drinking homemade lemonade in. I would love to win these so my family can experience the same as I did growing up. Thanks for the opportunity!

  14. So many good ways to use this beautiful glassware. And with the snow still piled in the garden, I have been dreaming of all the delicious food I hope to can this year.

  15. Those jars seem to be a lot bluer than the old ones. How pretty! I read the blue comes from the type of sand used.. So nice the lids are bpa free. Thank you for the contest! xx

  16. i love the blue. i have a few of my grandfather’s glass jars of all shapes and sizes and am always surprised how many people comment on how pretty they are.

    Reply
  17. These are so beautiful. I would love to can some crabapple or elderberry jelly in these and just watch the light play through them. Pepper jelly would be gorgeous. Maybe too pretty to eat!

    Reply
  18. So pretty! I’m trying to store more things in glass instead of plastic. And I’m itching to try out an old family recipe for bread and butter pickles. Maybe lovely jars are what i need to finally take the plunge!

  19. This color is so delicate and lovely. Too bad they have it only as a limited edition. Super fun giveaway, Winnie!

  20. These look to be a different shade than the vintage blue jars but are lovely in their own right. I would love to have these!

  22. I have some vintage blue canning jars, and I LOVE them. They remind me of simpler times. If I won these jars, I’d share with my friend, Jerry, who actually uses the jars for canned goods. Her jams and jellies are the best!

  23. Love the jars!! I’m just in the process of making over my pantry. Pulling out all plastic and going to glass. This would be a welcome addition !!! Love your blog!! Great recipes!

  24. I love these blue glass mason jars.. I’ve been putting all my powders (cacao, lucuma, maca, etc.), superfoods (hemp seeds, goji berries, nuts, etc.) and everything else (shredded coconut, cacao butter, nut butters, etc.) in glass mason jars, but these blue jars would be so great for my green smoothies and other liquid concoctions! Not to mention that blue is my fave color! Thanks!

  25. My boyfriend and I may have to live apart for our jobs (oh, but we are grateful to have work at all!)… Say, it occurred to me that my heart might be lightened if I could surprise him by sending him off with some home-made jams and jellies in those delightful blue canning jars. ;)

  26. These are awesome! I have a serious jar collection, probably over fifty jars of all shapes and sizes, but canning jars are one of my favorites! These would look so pretty displayed on my kitchen table filled with fresh cut flowers.

    Reply
  27. Those are beautiful. I’ve just recently started getting into making jam, and since blue is also my favorite color, those would be great to use!

  28. I just discovered your site today and came across this – when I saw your photo of these blue Ball jars I inadvertently let out an “Ohhhh…!!!!” I have collected a few blue vintage blues over the years and just last week knocked one off of the counter and nearly wept when it shattered. I have recently begun to foray into the intriguing world of Nourishing Traditions in an attempt to remineralize my 8 year old’s teeth, and to share the joy of natural food preparation with my boys. Winning a set of these blue jars would bring some extra sparkle into our shared cooking! Thanks for the gorgeous giveaway to herald in Spring!

  29. Such pretty jars! I wouldn’t want to hide them in the pantry. They would look nice on a shelf in my kitchen filled with dried beans, or cornmeal, or chocolate chips…

    Reply
  30. Oh wow – those are absolutely beautiful! and the pop-up lid for the jars is great, too. I’ll have to look into those. Would be great to win, but like so many others I’ll probably buy some if I don’t win! Thanks, Winnie!

  31. These are beautiful! The blue color reminds me of glass you collect at the beach. These would make a fun addition to home!! :)

    Reply
  32. I am in the process of switching over to glass for all my food storage and these would be a great help. The more I learn about our modern homemaking things, the more I think the good old fashioned ways are so much healthier, greener and actually, stylish!

  33. These are beautiful! Just scored some fruit pectin on sale, and can’t wait to can some fruit! I made some blood orange marmalade a few weeks ago that has been going fast!

  34. i have some old blue ones that were my mothers…i never give them away for fear i won’t get them back…would love some pretty blue jars i could give as gifts :)

  35. What a stroke of brilliance on the part of Ball! They’re lovely. I’ve been enjoying many of your recipes, by the way. I made your gluten-free blood orange cake a few weeks ago and it got rave reviews from all our dinner guests who went back for seconds!

  36. Gorgeous- Blue is my favorite color, after all. Jars like this are just begging to be filled with blueberry jam! It would certainly be an added incentive to start getting serious about canning this summer.

    Reply
  37. These are beautiful! I am getting so excited to start canning again this summer. I would love to give these to my friend who is also a fellow canner for her birthday!

    Reply
  38. I love this shade of blue. I would probably use them as drinking glasses and with the drinking lid for errand running and daily travels. Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway.

  39. We drink out of our clear ones right one… Blue would be beautiful and canning tomato sauce .. It would appear to be the color purple?? Fun giveaway :)

  40. These are beautiful! They would be perfect for the centerpieces at my grandparents 50th anniversary party that I’m planning.

  41. These are so pretty. Even if I don’t win going to try to find them. I use Ball jars for everything. Fruit compotes, salad dressing, left over storage, soups, beans……for food gifts, freezer jams. Thanks so much for sharing something new and fun. I enjoy your blog so much and share it with friends and clients all the time.

  42. Oh, these Ball jars are gorgeous!!! I’m sure I would find tons of decorative (as well as practical) uses to display these around the house!

  43. I just want to respond to Nutmeg Nanny and say: 1) love to have a gathering at my house and see her again soon, 2) she should bring house-made hooch, 3) she doesn’t want the jars more than me. She’s trippin’.

    Believe nothing she says.

    PS: Blue is Lucy’s favorite color.

  44. I love love love these! I always think everything tastes better in a ball jar. These beauties are sure to take everything to the next level. I am so inspired to make so many recipes for them.

  45. Wonderful! I have never even seen colored canning jars. I have just recently begun to use the clear ones for all sorts of fun things. Blue jars would definitely make my uses even funner ;- ))

  46. Hi! I’m an upstate New Yorker too!
    I started collecting blue Ball canning jars this summer and used a couple of them as my souvenir containers for our vacation to Chincoteague. I put some beach sand and shells in one and filled another just with shells. Then added a tag with the date and place of our vacation inside the jar, like a note in a bottle.
    So, I’d love to get my hands on these! I love the blue! Where can you order them from?

    Reply
  47. Love it! We got into mason jars this year, in fact our toddler just started learning to drink out of an open cup & used her first mason jar tonight! Hopping to learn to can/preserve this spring & summer…these are awesome!

    Reply
  48. I have three vintage blue ball jars that I love. I cannot use them for canning but these beautiful new jars will definitely accommodate my summer jam! Please choose me!

    Reply
  49. These are beautiful! Oh, I can’t decide what to put in them. I use jars for pantry and frig storage, but could put up some beet jam in a few!

    Reply
  50. Oh those are beautiful! I found my way here from Shirley at GFE and would love to win them. Looking forward to checking out the rest of your site too. :)

    Reply
  51. This would be awesome! Especially as my mom’s garden starts growing and we lean toward making more jams and condiments and canning them for off season times!

    Reply
  52. I have to find these! I am doing blue gerber daisy center pieces for a baby shower I am throwing, and giving them away as prizes! These are PERFECT! Thank you for offering!

  53. I love this ~ they would be a great match in my newly decorated kitchen. Thanks for the giveaway!

  54. I know that Kim wants them, but I want them even more than she does. True story. If I win I will bring some homemade hooch over to Kim’s house (I’m planning another party at Kim’s with all of us there….I hope she doesn’t mind) in the blue jars. I think that would make her feel better about the loss :)

    Reply
  55. I love those. And more jars is already on my shopping list. If I don’t win them I will definitely have to buy them.

    Reply
  56. I love these jars! I ordered two boxes as a b’day present to myself, but I started thinking I need more! They are blue! They are gorgeous! And I’d love to make my hubs some bread & butter pickles, pickled okra and who knows what else in these beauts!

    Reply
  57. Love these, Winnie! Like I said on FB, they look even bluer than the original ones. Using one to get in more water is a great idea. I’d use mine to drink my ACV elixir. :-) Thanks for the giveaway!

  58. I LOVE those lids, will be keeping my eyes on those. And I think that some BLUEBERRY or BLACKBERRY Jam would be AMAZING if canned into a set of these jars :-)

  59. Winnie, these are gorgeous! I’ve taken to putting EVERYTHING in Ball jars, but these are gorgeous. I think these could even make my kombucha SCOBY look pretty!
