Thread: Golden Harvest jars

    Default Golden Harvest jars

    Noted today that Walmart is advertising they have GH jars and lids,
    prices are a good bit higher than the same jars at Big Lots.

    Have read some reviews on line claiming Golden Harvest jars and lids are
    not good to use. Folks, they are the economy line made by Altrista, aka
    Ball, aka Jardin. Same folks who make Ball, Kerr, and Bernadin.

    Have never had a Golden Harvest jar fail on me and very few failures of
    their lids. Just a comment.

    I have a seriously mismatched collection of various brands of jars/lids
    and I don't find any to be more or less failure prone than others. No
    patterns at all.

    one bad jar from Ball (it had a long bubble
    in the glass along the seam and i sure didn't
    want to risk it breaking sometime under
    pressure) and as of yet no lid problems
    from anyone.

    so that's one out of about 72 jars purchased
    in the past four years. the rest we've been
    lucky to have people give us.

    i've yet to buy any other brand as that is
    what's been available locally when we've run
    short.

    Anytime Carol, check with the local Walmart to see if they stock them,
    the one here in our town does. You might be able to go online and find
    some nearby.

    It's Ohio, USA O, we don't understand Brit coinage, your money is still
    worth something, ours isn't. Let's see if I remember correctly 2/6d
    equals 2 shillings, 6 pence. Grade me.

    100% correct! I knew you would recognise it though)

    Remember half a crown? That was a coin worth 2/6d. These days it is 25p

    When I was flying in and out of Great Britain many years ago I would buy
    half pennies, remember the great big ones? Exactly the same size and
    weight of a US silver dollar, fit slot machines perfectly. <G>

    Inflation strikes everywhere, the US dollar is worth about 33 cents
    compared to the 1960 dollar.

    They may still have had quarts Carol. On my last visit there were
    several cases of quarts on another aisle, sort of surprised me that they
    had moved them and put them on the bottom shelf. I guess when the
    display gets low they move them elsewhere and move in a pallet of
    whatever came in last.

    Try family dollar, Dollar General, any of the discount stores.
    Call ahead of course, to see if they have them, but I've seen them at
    all of the above.

    None of the buck stores around here carry canning jars. :-( We have
    Family Dollar stores here.
