It’s July and summer fruits abound. After you’ve eaten as many fresh strawberries, raspberries or blackcurrants as you can, the rest can be frozen or made into jam. This is one of the easiest ways to deal with a glut of any fruit and will allow you to enjoy it every day even as winter draws in, spread on toast or scones, between the layers of a Victoria sponge or in a Bakewell tart.
If you’re making jam in any quantity, Wares of Knutsford’s jar selection comes in a number of sizes, including the useful 1lb jars, with spare lids available. Remember to sterilise your jars before you fill them.
Apart from jars, Wares of Knutsford can supply any other jam making equipment you may need, such as thermometers, funnels, preserving pans, straining kits, labels, pretty jar covers and jam making recipe books or complete kits, perfect for helping you get started if you are new to preserving.
1lb jam jars
The standard 378ml or 1lb jam jars are perfect for jam or any other sort of preserving. This is a regulation size jar, ideal for shows and competitions. Straight sided and in clear glass, the 1lb jars can be bought in four pack sizes: 12, 24, 36 or a 192 jar bargain pack. Larger pack sizes are more economical – the more you buy, the cheaper they get and they don’t have to be used only for preserving – lots of our customers have been bulk buying jars to make creative wedding favours! Heat sealable, vinegar proof screw top lids are included in a choice of seven colours – gold, silver, black, white, green and classic red or blue gingham. The jars are carefully packed to make sure they arrive in perfect condition.
