If you’ve been reading this site for any length of time, you’ve surely heard me wax poetic about my beloved 24 ounce jars. These wide mouth jars hold a pint and a half and are the perfect size for canning asparagus, storing leftovers or using to transport iced coffee.
They’ve been out of production for many years now. I have a small stash thanks to a couple lucky eBay scores, but I’ve always wished that Ball would bring them back. I know I’m not the only one who has hoped for such a day.
Well folks, that day has come. A sharp-eyed reader sent me a link over the weekend saying that she’d spotted new Pint & Half Jars on the Sears website. I got in touch with my PR contact at Ball and this morning it was confirmed. The 24 ounce mason jar is back.
They should be available wherever jars are sold in the coming weeks. The list price is $10.85, which is a far sight less expensive that what the vintage versions go for. Make sure to encourage your local retailers to order this size so that Ball sees how much we value it.
