Giveaway: Itty Bitty Jars and Food in Jars from Fillmore Container

FiJBittyJarsGiveaway2640

Dear friends, let us rejoice! The weekly giveaway is back! Today, we have a fun prize pack from our friends at Fillmore Container. They are giving one lucky FiJ reader a copy of my book and two dozen itty bitty jars (the winner gets to choose which ones they want). The book you know about, so let’s talk just a little bit about these cute little jars.

They typically hold just an ounce or two and are just the thing for gifts and holiday sampler packs. Fillmore carries them in both round and hex shaped. They seal with one-piece lids, which though not approved by the USDA, can be safely used if you follow a few simple instructions (here’s my tutorial on how to use the continuous thread one-piece lids, and here’s the lug version).

If you’re starting to plot out your holiday giving (yes, I know it seems impossible to be talking about it, but we’re closing in on the end of September), consider adding some wider variety to your gifts by canning some of them up in these little jars. I’m thinking a super rich jam like this pear chocolate one might be a good candidate for such things.

Here’s how to enter:

  1. Leave a comment on this post and share what you’d put in these itty bitty jars.
  2. Comments will close at 5 pm east coast time on Friday, September 27, 2013. Winners will be chosen at random (using random.org) and will be posted on Sunday, September 29, 2013.
  3. Giveaway is open to US residents.
  4. One comment per person, please. Entries must be left on the blog, I cannot accept submissions via email.
Disclosure: Fillmore Container is a paid sponsor of this blog. They are providing the prize for this giveaway as part of that promotional agreement. However, all opinions expressed here remain my own.

    I would use them for crabapple jelly, because we’re about to have more of the little guys then we know what to do with. I think those little jars would look like jewels when filled with something clear.

    I would put my peach rhubarb chutney in these and give as gifts to be used for the upcoming holidays!

    Small jars need big flavors, so something spicy like hot pepper jam!

    Love the tiny jars! They would make great gifts! I would put port wine jelly in them :-)

    I would use for peach jam to use up all the peaches filling up my freezer.

    marmalade! my dad is the only person i know that eats the stuff and he’s relegated it to an occasional treat. the wee jars would be perfect for one or two days worth of breakfasts without having to worry about trying to use up a larger jar before it gets fuzzy.

    Nancy B from Many LA says:

    Use them for Christmas gifts – not sure what I’d put in them yet! LOL!

    I’ve just been canning things for the last two years – I finally had time to learn some of these things when I lost my 60 hour/wk. job a few years ago. I’d love those little jars to put my candied citrus peels in for the special folks who are lucky enough to get the fruits of my labor. I love candied orange peels, so it’s a real hardship to give any away! I only give small amounts, and it wouldn’t look so pitifully small in those cute jars, LOL!

    Kat says:

    I love these little jars! I would use them to store the dried herbs I grew on my deck this summer. Also, they are the perfect size for storing the seeds I saved from annuals and perrenials this summer. The jars keep the seeds safe and dry until next season!

    Megan says:

    I’d love to try some peach jam to share in the jars- or apple butter. Mmmm

    Laurie says:

    I think I would fill them with unusual or decadent things like, as you suggest, the Pear and Chocolate Jam (can’t wait to try that!) or tomoto jam or lemon curd and tuck them together with some artisan bread and cheese and give as gifts. They look like the perfect size for just a taste!

    Donna B says:

    I would put Jalapeno Pepper Jelly in them. A couple of ounces over a brick of cream cheese makes a very nice appetizer spread.

    Amber C says:

    So Cute! They would be fantastic for storing spices I bet. I would also love fill them with fancy jams and use them as stocking stuffers.

    Helaine C says:

    I would use these for storing my dried herbs and spices for everyday cooking. I have the perfect shelf for them!

    HONEY! in a beautiful little jar. Priceless.

    I would fill them with Trinidad Scorpion Hot Chili Oil that I have steeping on my counter right now! YUM!

    marcella says:

    I’m tempted to fill them with Francis Lam’s sexy salted chocolate sauce, but it might be mean to only give someone an itty bitty jar of that luscious sauce. So, perhaps I’d have to move the herb salt recipe from the “try someday” to “do it now” to fill those cute jars.

    Brian Hostetter says:

    I would use these jars to make my fennel and sweet onion jam to give away or use at food exchange in the town where I live.

    Mulled Pear Jelly. So. Very. Tasty!

    My favorite jam/jelly of the season out of 20+ types. Inspired in part by your Peach Oolong Jelly and Pear Cinnamon Jam – you actually mention a mulled pear jam in that post!

    Zest says:

    These are the perfect jars for my grandmother, who obsesses over food spoilage, especially when opening a large container. :)

    Jason says:

    Mango, peach, jalapeno jam and peach plum ginger jam.

  27. 1377
    Suzie says:

    I make my own Organic Rosemary Sea Salt, and these little jars would be the perfect complement to complete my little gourmet gifts. I also grow and grind several different types of hot peppers, which would fill nicely in the itty-bitty jars.

    Becky says:

    An assortment of specialty jams and conserves will be beautiful in these itty bitty jars! For holiday gift-giving, nothing beats it and my friends and family look forward to my forays into “imaginative” jam concoctions. Plum toasted walnut conserve is a favorite and will shine in these little jars. Probably just enough to make them want more…

    Whenever we eat breakfast out, I check the ingredients on the jam provided. Invariably they are those little plastic packs made with high fructose corn syrup. This morning, on my honeymoon in NYC, we ate at the Rue 57 cafe. On the table was a basket of little one-ounce JARS of jam, made with real sugar and real fruit! I was so excited to see them, tho I didn’t actually use any. If I had my own I would love to fill them with my own jam made with real fruit and real sugar and give away to everyone I love.

    I’d use them to hold spices :-)

    Jonda says:

    What beautiful little jars they are. There are so many things I can think of to do with them. I’d use some for spices, some for homemade toothpaste, some for homemade little candles, and some for my homemade lotions or hair products. They would be perfect stocking stuffers this Christmas.

    Kate says:

    I would use these for grape jelly and give them away at Christmas!
