Weck Reusable Glass Jars

Why are we stocking reusable glass jars? Well, because we as a family have changed how we live in response to our own concerns about the pressures our environment facers. We're actively moving away from buying foods wrapped in plastic and making a concerted effort to live a zero waste lifestyle (we've a long way to go). One of the biggest changes we've made is to begin to grow and preserve some of our own food, including of course the famous Curious Minds Honey from our beehives. Where we cannot grow our own (we live in a suburban setting, it poses challenges!), we are buying from small scale, local producers who grow foods we cannot, such as meat and milk. We are trying to buy in season, which means learning to preserve for the hungry months. And that's where the Weck Jars come in to the story. They're by far the most eco friendly preserving jars I've come across, because they don't use a one-time-use metal canning lid, but instead use natural rubber seals and reusable clips. They're also by far and away the most beautiful jars and if you have shelves full of home made preserves in beautiful Weck Jars, you know life is good!

With the added bonus of being able to freeze and bake! (Baking in the jar is not possible with Ball Mason or Fowlers Vacola). The 850ml size jars are extremely popular particular for preserving stone fruit, apples and pears. They are also an ideal size for pressure canned meals. The most versatile and beautiful preserving jar available today. Weck canning jars are made with thick glass to withstand boiling, sterilizing and processing over and over again. Glass lids preclude issues with rusting, and the tab on the replaceable rubber ring, when facing downwards, indicates clearly that the seal on the jar is intact. The point of canning is to hermetically seal the outside world from the sterilized interior of the jar, preventing the food inside from spoiling. These jars are designed to make it easy to tell whether or not this all-important seal has been made. Boiling the filled jars (also referred to as ‘processing’) and the cooling period directly afterward, creates a vacuum seal tight enough to keep invisible microbes from entering the jar. The strength of this seal alone is also what keeps the glass lids in place. After the jars have fully cooled, the stainless steel clamps are removed and you can check if the jars have sealed by lifting the lid. If it doesn’t come off, you know for sure the jar is sealed. If the jar didn’t seal properly, you can either re-process it, or refrigerate the jar and eat the contents within a couple of days. All jars have wide openings for tidy, easy filling. Replacement rings, lids and clamps are also available. Learn More
