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 you’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.

    My 9 year old is going to live with my in-laws in Europe for a few months. I am heart sick, so I am thinking that I will can up a storm of things while he is gone so when he returns he can taste all the things he missed!

    What beauties they are! Green is my favorite color. My dried chamomile, lavender or bergamot would be nice in these jars. How about cool sweet, chamomile or mint tea on a hot summer day? Epsom salts with herbs or candies filled for a nice christmas gift. Patio votive lights that have copper wires made to fit the jars so they may be hung. The uses for these emerald green jars are endless.

    Holy cow those are beautiful! Where to begin? I’d love to use them for pickling, I want to do a few different kinds of pickles this year – pretty much anything that will take to brine! When they aren’t full of canned goodness I think they would make amazing drinking glasses and vases!

    Laura says:

    I love these even more than the blue! I would use 4 as glasses and make the rest for brightly colored things, like preserved lemons or pickled beets.

  38. 638

    I think I would use them on my desk. As fun as I think the color jars are (please say pink will be the chosen color next year!!), I don’t love how food looks in them as much as I love the clear jars. HOWEVER I think the color green is so pretty and would look like perfection on my big desk/sewing area!!

    I would fill these with my homemade salsa and give them as gifts for the holidays. I think the color combination of the red salsa and green jars would be very festive.

  45. 645

    First, I will fill one with marbles and make it into a lamp. Then I will apportion some for canning and others for summer drinking glasses.

    I am a photographer and I would like to take the jars, along with some of the blue ones from last year, fill them with crystals or other types of filler, add lights either inside or out and photograph them. After they are finished posing I would either use them for drinking glasses, storage, and probably can in them as well.
