Enhance your jam with jam jar labels
As the saying goes, ‘manners maketh man’. It might also be true to say that ‘labels maketh jam’, as your home preserves simply won’t look their very best without a lovely label to depict the contents. In today’s post, we are going to take a look at two or three of our favourite labels from our extensive range to show just how pretty they are and how much of a difference they can make to your jams, pickles and preserves.
Our favourite jam jar labels
The choice of label for a particular preserve depends, of course, on what you are making. Many of our labels feature fruit or vegetable designs, representing what is in the jam or chutney. With raspberries in season from late May through to September, now is the time to start thinking about making some delicious raspberry jam. Choosing our gorgeously-colourful raspberry jam jar labels will mean you will know instantly what is in the jar when it is lined up alongside all your other preserving projects in the larder or kitchen cupboard. These delightful labels are part of a series created by mother and daughter team Rosemary and Caroline Wagstaff, with plenty of other fruit designs to choose from.
Another of our firm favourites here at Wares of Knutsford is the gingham check labels. These are available in a range of lovely colours, including periwinkle (purple), rose red, ocean blue and cornflower blue. The gingham check gives a lovely vintage-inspired feel to your jars and can be set off perfectly with gingham lids or gingham fabric covers, which are also available in store.
If you are planning to make your own pickled onions this year, what could be nicer than specially-designed labels just for pickled onions? These lovely labels feature beautifully-drawn shallots alongside all the spices you would typically add to a jar of homemade pickles. Again, small details such as these labels go a long way to presenting your home preserves in the best possible light.
Jam jar labels for smaller jars
If you like using our miniature jam jars to create individual pots of jam, our mini-jam jar labels are just the ticket; again, these are in the watercolour fruits range of labels. We have mini versions with a mixed fruit design, a garden vegetables design, and a rather charming ‘Rosemary’s Garden’ design, which features various fruits and garden creatures such as a hedgehog, a mouse and a butterfly. These mini-jam jar labels fit perfectly on all our miniature jars.
