At Wares of Knutsford we are delighted to introduce a new product, 380ml square jars which are ideal for all sorts of preserving and other kitchen use.
380ml Quadro Jar
The Quadro square jars are made of high quality, heavyweight clear glass and come with vinegar proof and heat sealable lids. Lids can be specified in a choice of seven colours: gold, silver, black, white, green and blue or red gingham. They can be bought in packs of six, 12 and 24.
The tall, slim and square shape makes the jars very easy and practical to store while the 380ml size is large enough to keep you well stocked with homemade jam, pickles, sun dried tomatoes and all sorts of other preserves. The jars also have a timeless look, meaning they fit in well with any style of kitchen, but we think they look particularly good in a rustic, country kitchen.
Quadro Jar Gifts
These jars look great given as gifts, and this is one of our favourite ideas for how to fill them.
Fill each Quadro jar up to about halfway with a good quality cocoa mix, then lay three mint chocolate squares on top. Top up the jars with mini marshmallows. Cut out a circle from some pink cotton fabric, a little larger than the neck of the jar, place it over the jar then carefully screw the lid on so that the fabric forms a sort of decorative skirt around the top of the bottle. Stick a pretty, pink and white label on to each jar towards the bottom. You can make this a very adult gift by using some red twine to tie a miniature bottle of Kahlua to the neck of each jar, or make it look pretty for children by spray painting a small animal shape and glueing it to the lid of the jar.
You don’t have to fill the jar with cocoa mix – all sorts of other ingredients go together to make a lovely gift – you could fill the jars with a chocolate brownie mix, with a fruit and herbs mixture to scent a room and even to make a toilet deodoriser look pretty! Simply half fill a jar with bicarbonate of soda, add a few drops of lavender essential oil and stir well. Keep the jar in the bathroom close to the toilet and sprinkle the mixture into the bowl whenever you want to freshen up your bathroom.
