When you are styling up your kitchen, a storage jar set goes a long towards both keeping things tidy and setting a theme – rustic, retro or ultra modern, for example.
Kilner storage jars at Wares of Knutsford
Kilner is the brand name of a company that has produced glass jars since the 18940s, but the name has come to represent a number of different kinds of jars, particularly those with a clip top. Wares of Knutsford stocks a range of different Kilner storage jars, including knobstopper jars, screw tops, coloured clip top versions, a handled drinking jar and a range of swing top bottles.
Wares customers have used their purchases for home made jams and preserves of all sorts, cordials, home brews and in more creative ways as wedding favours, vases, candle holders and to keep their homes organised and tidy.
Kilner storage jars with knobstoppers
The knobstopper storage jar set by Kilner is both beautiful and practical. In clear glass with an embossed logo on the side, it works perfectly in traditional style working kitchens. The push close lid is adorned with a glass ball shaped handle and keeps food fresh with an airtight seal. There are five jars included in the set – a 2.35 litre pasta jar, a 2 litre jar, a 1.5 litre cookie jar, a 1 litre jar and a 650m jar, all of which have a diameter of 110mm.
The jars look great grouped together on a worktop, lined up on a shelf or simply integrated in among your other kitchen equipment. They can be used for tea, coffee, sugar, rice, flour, pulses, cereals or any other dried goods that need an airtight container to be kept fresh.
Kilner knobstopper jars can also be bought separately if you would like to add to your collection.
Sunshine lemon curd in Kilner jars
This tangy but sweet curd tastes like sunshine in a jar! It’s great to eat on toast, as breakfast with Greek yoghurt and chopped nuts or give as a gift.
- 5 unwaxed lemons, zested and juiced
- 4 eggs
- 130g unsalted butter
- 450g granulated sugar
Add the lemon zest and juice and the eggs to a heatproof bowl, stirring gently to combine. Then place the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, add the butter and sugar and heat gently, stirring frequently. When the mixture has thickened to your satisfaction, remove the bowl from the heat and spoon the curd into sterilised jars. Seal and store in the refrigerator.
