Plain pint jars
[Return to Topics]

I am looking to buy pint canning jars that are clear without raised lettering (embossing) on them but have had no luck. Does anyone know where these can be purchased?

pam Ray makes a good point i have been canning for a good while and one thing i learned is to never use anything but canning jars .had on explode in the pan{thank god} but if it had been on the counter i can't imagine how dangerous that would be!! if your just going to put stuff in the on the counter or fridge it wouldn't be a big deal . i have a food-saver[vacuum seal thingy] and it has a cone that you can vacuum seal any jar that takes a wide mouth lid and i used any jar for that to store sugars,rice etc.

And Donna makes another good point. Why do you need unmarked jars?

Miracle Whip (and other brands) of salad dressing, and mayonase used to be packaged in pint and quart plain glass jars. Many of these became fruit jars in the collections of many a homemaker back then. Check at garage sales, and ask your older friends and neighbors, they may still have some of 'em in the basement. Be aware that the jars are somewhat lighter than regular Ball and Kerr mason jars, and thus more fragile.
