    Default Odd sized jars?


    I was reading through a couple of Ball Blue Books and some
    other canning books today and saw a reference to using
    1 1/2 pint jars. (3 cups) Has anyone ever seen these
    or was it a typo? Did they mean 1 1/2 CUP (18 oz.)
    which exist but aren't that easy to find?

    I remember my mother and grandmother using them back in the 1950s and
    1960s. I don't know where they came from.

    I have about 40 or 50 of these jars that I picked up on craigslist last
    year.....they are all identical, they say ATLAS and MASON....and they hold 1
    1/2 cups, and they look like new, definately not from 50's .....The person
    who sold them to me said they contained some kind of spagetti sauce....but i
    don't remember the name.....I like them....they are good size for salsa.

    They were produced by Ball but I don't know exactly when, but I
    bought several boxes probably in the 1980's. I still have a dozen or
    so and would love to find more.

    They do hold 3 cups. They are the same height has a quart jar and
    look like a tall wide mouth pint. I love them for pickled asparagus
    and a good size for veggies for 2. However they do not leave the
    house.

    I have eight 3 cup jars made by Atlas. they are quart hight but are
    somewhat narrower. they all come from Classico Spaghetti Sauce. My
    daughter and I both prefer that brand. I use them and their lids as
    drinking jars cause five of them contains enough water for my daily
    ration. LOL

    Classico also sells quarts at Sam's club or some such, and I've
    recently seen half pints but neither of these has the proper canning
    lid screw closure so they may be doing away with that and going to the
    single use lids. I better go buy more I guess. LOL

    I have some of the Leifheit 3-cup jars (you can see them on eBay) that I
    bought at Zabar's in NYC. Can't bring myself to use them, though. Go
    figure. What a dope.

    Do you still have the boxes, Susan? Were they billed as freezer jars?
    I think those were about 3-cups, tapering to wider at the top than
    bottom so that removing a frozen block of something was easier to do.

    They are too expensive anyway. It would be cheaper to buy a bunch of
    Contadina product and throw it away for the jars. Or, have a big past feed
    for the neighborhood.



    Also:

    I cannot tell if this uses regular caning lids:

    This size is common for spaghetti sauce. Save them. I know it is
    heresy but they work well for jams, jars and lids.

    Oh yeah, I recognize that jar now, I have one of the freezer jars
    someone gave me, I use it to store dry goods in as I don't make freezer jam.

    The Classico sauce jars are 26 ounce jars IIRC.

    Someone is selling 5 of the 1 1/2 pints jars on Ebay. I would love to
    have some, but not at those prices.

    The classico jars say 26oz of product. However, try fitting 26 oz of
    water in them and you'll quickly realize that it must be 26 oz by
    WEIGHT, not by volume. Volume wise, they are 24 oz to the bottom of
    the neck.

    Actually the Classico ATLAS jars are jgenuwine atlas jars and
    perfectly good for any type of canning

    The boxes disappeared years ago but about 1" from the top it says
    "freezing -- fill to here." The bottom is the same as the wide mouth
    pint and by the time you add the extra height it cannot taper very
    much and have a wide mouth lid fit. All it says on the side of the
    jar is "Wide Mouth."
