Giveaway: New Ball Heritage Collection Green Jars

green heritage jars

As you might remember, Ball released a line of limited edition blue glass pint jars last year. It was a fun throwback to canning jars of yore and I enjoyed using them throughout the 2013 canning season (though I will confess, they do make my peaches look a bit little sickly).

This year, Ball is continuing the special edition trend with a limited release of green jars. These jars will be available in both regular mouth pint jars and wide mouth quarts, which is particularly exciting for those of who like to use wide mouth quart jars as drinking glasses (I’ll actually have more about my habit of drinking out of wide mouth quarts later this week). Just like the blue jars, they will be making a finite number, so if you fall in love with this particular look, make sure to stock up sooner rather than later.

Typically, I don’t like to write about new jars and products without having had a chance to experience them personally, but we had a little shipping snafu and the jars that were coming to me got a bit delayed. However, I promised a good giveaway this week and so made an exception. When I do get these jars into my hot little hands, I’ll be posting a follow-up post and some photos, so that you can get a better idea of what they look like in the real world.

Fillmore Container recently published a post on their blog about these new jars and they have a couple of additional images if you’re interested. They’ll also be taking online orders for them soon.

Now, here’s the giveaway scoop. The nice folks at Ball have given me 10 cases of the green pint jars to give away to 10 lucky winners (each winner will receive one case, which contains 6 jars). Here’s how to enter:

  1. Leave a comment on this post and share how youโ€™d use these new jars in your home.
  2. Comments will close at 12 noon on Sunday, February 2, 2014. Winners will be chosen at random and will be posted to the blog later that day.
  3. Giveaway open to US residents only (so sorry, my further-flung readers).
  4. One comment per person, please. Entries must be left via the comment form on the blog at the bottom of this post.

Disclosure: The jars for this giveaway have been provided by the manufacturer at no cost to me. However, my opinions remain entirely my own.ย

    We live in the woods. As you may know it is very hard to grow a garden with little sun, but we have, by trial and error, learned what works best in the garden and also what works best on the deck in any container we can plant in that we can locate into a sunny location. Thankfully, even being a city girl, my grandmother taught me well, and I have taken to making the most of our crop. We Can what we sow, using it for our family or giving it to friends that don’t know how to Can. I have seen the green before at my grandparents, and I would love to have them now.

    I would use half as candleholders to go with the vintage blue jars I already have in my beachy-themed sunroom. The other half I’ll use to can either pickles or beans, which would look wonderful in these jars.

    Abi Baker says:

    They’d look nice with pickles in them, but I’d probably mostly enjoy drinking out of them, or other non-canning uses. Most of the foods I can wouldn’t look good with a green tinge, but they’d be lovely on the table.

    I would love to have some of these jars. I would use them to make oil candles. I would drill a hole in the top and put in a fiber glass wick with olive oil. I would give as gifts to friends for birthdays.
    I would also use them to store some of my button collection I received from my darling Mom. she is no longer with me but I have her buttons. I remember different pieces of clothing with some of the buttons. Please pick me. I would love to have some of these jars.
    God bless.
