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.

    I’ve been canning a bunch these last few months. But I would probably use these mostly for storage of dry goods. They would look pretty sitting on my kitchen counters.

  27. 1327
    Jessica says:

    Love the green, possibly even more than the blue…if that’s conceivable! I’d use them in every way imaginable: to store nuts, shredded coconut, chocolate chips, etc in our pantry, to hold delicious smoothies and juices, and for canning, of course!

    Jenny C says:

    I would use them for pickles, certainly, and then for whatever in my pantry needed a home. I bet your yellow tomato jam, which i made for the first time last summer & loved, would be pretty in green. Lots of Ball/Mason jars all over my kitchen!

    I would use these for my summer garden and fruit tree harvest this summer! Pickled okra, peach jam, blueberry jam, fig preserves, dill pickles, pickled green tomatoes, canned tomatoes, pickled jalapenos, hot pepper jelly, green beans, and on and on!!! I have been scouring the flea market sites for extra jars bit these are just beautiful!! I have a few new canning recipes I would love to try. These would work wonderfully for the homemade sauerkraut I plan on making this summer from homegrown cabbages. I have the crocks all ready. I’ve also just started making marmalade, which turned out beautifully. I would put these jars to GREAT use! We just moved into our new house last June and since I was VERY pregnant (gave birth in September), I was only able to can a few things from the fruit trees. I already have the plans laid out for my new garden and can’t wait to be out there in the dirt with my 5yr old twins and new baby in the spring! After filling the jars, I would cross stitch a little something to use as the fabric under the lid to do these jars justice!

    Debbie says:

    I LOVE these jars. I decorate my kitchen in pinecones and greenery. I would love a set of these for my drinking glasses. We already use regular jars for our drinking glasses and this would look so good in my country kitchen. I have lots and lots of clear jars that we use for canning everything we grow in the summer and things I buy in bulk like strawberries, peaches and pears. We grow peppers of all kinds, squash, tomatoes, beans, okra, cucumbers and zucchini. I just love these jars! In fact, I don’t think I can live without them 🙁
    I might use just one of them for my table centerpiece with flowers so I can see one even when I’m not needing a drink.
