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 would use this jars, along with the blue and clear to jar by year! Green for 2014, blue in 2015 and clear in 2016. A quick look in the pantry would tell me which jar to use first.

    I would use the green jars to put my green smoothies or salads in or try out making my own dehydrated veggie soup mixes. Or perhaps just organizing my pantry. These green ones would make awesome terrariums though.

  44. 2444
    Heather says:

    I’d be tempted to throw them in the canning rotation like all the others, but I think they’d make really, really great vases for daisies come summer!

    Pam M says:

    Love the green look more than the blue!! I would use them for canning or just storing other foods in. I also like to use canning jars for fresh flower bouquets and green would add a nice look to them.

  47. 2447
    Melissa Lyons says:

    Honestly, they are really pretty in color. I’m not exactly sure what I’d do with them. I’d probably save them for something special, a wedding, baby shower or some kind of gift.
    I don’t think I’d can regular food in them, that’s for the clear ones. I’d definitely do something unusual and different.
    Hope I win….
