Ball Pint & Half Jars

Look what I got by UPS delivery today.

3 boxes, 9 jars in each box, of the Ball Pint & Half Jars, Bread & Butter Pickle Mix, Classic Pectin and Low or No Sugar Pectin.  This is like Christmas to me.  Ball sent me the items to review.

I am really excited to put the stuff to the test, the pickle mix will have to wait until next season but the jars and the pectin will be used in the next couple of weeks.
I have some grape juice that I canned when we were in Texas and will use the pectin to make some Wild Grape Jelly.  I will try both of the pectin's to see which one I like best.
I have been so wanting to use this size jar on things that a pint is not enough and a quart is too much.  I will be using them to can some pork and beans, potatoes/carrot/onion mixture to use for stew and some butternut squash.  I will keep you update when I use the products.  I love the look of the jar, wide mouth, and straight up and down.  
My brain is churning at all the possibilities for this size and shape of jar.

Ain't she pretty?  Come on admit it, she is a pretty good looking girl.


  1. What size is it? Those look great. I've used the bulk pectin before, & like it. It's nice to have on hand when you need more for jam but, not an entire pack. I'll have to kee an eye out for those...where did you find them?

    1. They are pint and a half, and got them at Big R.
