December is not the usual month for jam making, but it is a great time to make marmalades, pickles and chutneys of all sorts, both to give as gifts and as part of your Christmas cooking spectacular. Nothing cuts through the fatty excess of Christmas dinner leftovers like a sweet and tart chutney or pickle!
If you’re feeling a bit Scrooge-like this year, now is a great time for stocking up on jars for jam and preparing for next year’s seasonal cooking efforts. Either way, Wares of Knutsford has a huge selection of jars for jam to help you.
Decorative and traditional jam jars
The Wares of Knutsford traditional jam jars range starts with the basic, shape suitable for competition use. These are available in sizes from a mini 41ml up to 378ml or 1lb. These all purpose jars are incredibly useful for any kind of home preserving and come with heat sealable lids in a range of colours including gold, silver, black, white, green and red or blue gingham.
However, if you’re planning to give edible gifts you may want to consider something a little more decorative. The Deluxe range jars can also be bought in a number of sizes and are made from heavyweight glass with straight sides, combining functionality with contemporary good looks perfectly. The Fancy Food Jars range is also ideal for edible gift giving or for commercial display, with an interesting detail around the neck for a professional look.
Aside from round jars, the Wares range encompasses a number of hexagonal and octagonal jars again starting at a mini 45ml size and going up to the 385ml Bonne Maman style jar.
Study the jars range carefully to make sure you make the right selection for your purposes and if you’re buying jars to give as gifts, don’t forget to include some fancy labels, ribbons, jar covers and other decorative elements!
