Tall or short, clear or colorful, empty or full, on paper or in person (or even on a tea towel) – we are crazy for canning jars! These classic jars charm us with their endless possibilities. They are, of course, perfect for canning fruits, vegetables and your favorite jelly or salsa – but if you don’t own a jar wrench yet, there are still plenty of way to express your love for canning!

They make for great storage with our chalkboard stickers or tags.
