Thats nice to know.  Thank you.  I thought 1/2 ib jars would be less wasteful over time as we don't eat that much jam.

Gosh, I never had to buy jars in the UK as I always kept mine rather than recycling. Over here, with bottling being a way of life, you can get strong 2lb jars (minus lids, bought by the 50 for a quid) for about 1.50 a dozen, small, fancy ones with lid 2 a dozen.

So glad I wasn't tempted to buy any before we came out.....though I did think of it, knowing I had fruit trees.

I was short of jars for the strawberry glut this year.

A short plea on Freegle soon sorted that out at no cost. I now have a glut of jars!
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

They look great!

I spent a bit more in my local kitchen supplies shop. I know I could have saved jars, but I was making jelly as gifts and I wanted them to look smarter than they would have otherwise.  :nowink:

At Hampton Court they were showing complete outdoor kitchens. Amazing, and expensive.

Those kitchens did look stunning - we were admiring them a fair amount. If I ever get my 'grand design' it will include one!
