    Default 24 oz. jars



    I just saw an add by Ball on Facebook.

    They are making 24 oz./pint-and-a-half wide mouth jars
    for (gulp) $12.99 for a case of 9 jars (plus shipping, of course.)
    They are touting them as perfect for "tall items" like asparagus.

    Wow! I have about two dozen Classico sauce jars that hold 26 ounces that
    friends gave me over the years. They were free to me. Now they don't
    make them anymore that take regulation jar lids and rings. I would have
    put asparagus in them if I had any. <G>

    I wonder how many people will fall for that set of jars at that high price.

    DH started on a witch hunt after I told them what you had seen.
    Checked Wal-Mart and they did not have them. Their regular sized lids
    are only 4 cheaper per box than my regular grocery store which
    carries canning products year around. Local grocery had 1 box of the
    24 oz. jars and they are 9.38 + 6 tax. DH bought the only one they
    had and asked the manager to special order about 9 more boxes for us.

    Love it when the store manager's parents live two doors from us. The
    manager lived there until he bought a house a year or so ago. Now he
    lives almost across the street from my cousin. The beauty of small
    towns.

    That's too expensive, but I might buy one box if I can find them
    locally. I have a case of the old ones, but I've lost/broken a few over
    the years.

    The jars came in today. Think I will make another batch of strawberry
    jam and take jars to the store manager and the man who checked on them
    and set our order aside for us this morning.

    They took surveys, George. People want them. I think the price is too
    steep, though. I have no need of them maybe for bread & butter
    pickles. Processing times to be used are those for quart jars.

    I really want inexpensive 12 oz. jars. If we have the apricot crop I'm
    anticipating, 8 oz jars just are too small and pints take a long time to
    use up.

    the last 12oz jars i've used were the Quilted
    Crystal Ball brand for about $6-7/dozen. they are
    tall/narrow. a little too tippy for me. we used
    them for gifts/giving away and i'm not terribly
    upset if they don't get returned.

    i much prefer the stocky pints.

    if it is a matter of getting sick of one kind of
    jam in a pint then perhaps working two batches at a
    time of different flavors and layering them in the
    jar would be one solution? (ok, so it is complicated,
    but some people like a challenge )...

    I saw then today for $12.99, not sure if a pkg of 8 or 12.

    Not sick of the jam, we just don't use it up quickly enough
    in pint sizes.

    ouch!

    i'd consider partly filling pint jars. i
    don't think the little air left in would
    degrade a full sugar jam by much. could be
    worth the try at that price. or slipping a
    circle of wax paper down in might solve that
    problem? not sure. listening for other
    jam makers...

    ah, ok, that would rarely be my problem here.

    I found mine at my local grocery store for $9.38 for the box of 9.
    They had 1 in stock which DH bought and then had the manager order
    more which came in in a couple of days with their regular orders. The
    other nice man had them all loaded into a cart when we came back to
    pick them up.

    for $9.99/dozen (+ 6% sales tax).

    Those jars are still in 12s. I think the new 24-ounce jar comes in a
    flat of 9.
