With harvest season just starting off, those with a penchant for preserving are readying their jam pans and stocking up on sugar, ready to turn this year’s fruits into flavoursome spreads! Whether you’re making traditional flavours like strawberry and raspberry or being more adventurous with obscure flavours like rhubarb and ginger, our glass jars with lids come in a range of shapes, sizes and styles to compliment your flavour creations.
Whether you’ve grown it yourself or just bought it from a supermarket, seasonal fruit and vegetables are one of the easiest ways to eat sustainably. However, with the magic of our budget glass jars, you can turn that in-season veg into a preserve, chutney, jam, soup, marinade or sauce and enjoy it outside of the season for months to come. If you want to enjoy delicious, sustainable fruit and veg in this way, then we’ve got a recipe for each month using some of the most readily available ingredients.
At the moment we’re all trying our best to reduce the amount of time we spend outside the home, which means making fewer trips to the shops for essentials like food and cleaning products. To minimise interactions with supermarkets, market stalls and greengrocers, many are keen to make what they do have at home go that little bit further, whether it’s freezer stocks, fresh produce or even cosmetics. Using a range of jars and bottles can help extend the shelf life of products and encourage economic use.
Spending time at home means looking for new ways to keep busy and indulging in some crafts using jam jars can make light of idle hands. Whether it’s ideas to keep the children occupied or the time has finally come to practice a new skill, our range of jam jars open up a world of possibility for crafters new and old! As avid jam jar enthusiasts, over the years we’ve turned our hand to a number of hobbies and we’re sharing some of the best so you can enjoy your time spent in the house.
Christmas is edging nearer, and excitement is filling the air! If you’ve grabbed the festive bull by the horns and are fully immersed in the holiday mood, then Christmas crafts are probably already scheduled into your calendar. If you’re not quite jingle belling away just yet, then cracking out the crafts is sure to get you in the spirit. We’ve got some family-friendly ideas as well as some alcoholic adult ones so the whole family can join in!
