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.

    Love the green! I got a set of the blue for Christmas and they’ve been added to our drinking glasses. I would LOVE to get a set of the wide-mouth green ones to use with my green Cuppow lids. Thanks for the great giveaway!

    I canned everything from soup to nuts in those beautiful blue jars. My girls got them for gifts. I have two grand kids that will not drink out of anything else when the come over. Blue jars with fresh squeezed lemonade. We’ve had a great time with the Blue! Now I think we should ” GO Green”

    So pretty! Granola, pancake mix and other staples would fill these jars.

    Lori Hampton says:

    Green! Awesome! I would make me a nice sippy cup (lid punched with hole and a rubber grommet to line the hole, a nice metal straw for the hole) A nice red neck wine glass, and then I am thinking pickles would look awesome canned in these!! Love your blog! :0)

    Christina says:

    Those jars are awesome! I’d definitely use some for drinks, some for flowers, and some to can some jam with the summer fruits I froze!

    Looking to use these green jars for sundries in the kitchen (herbs, seasonings, corn starch, clear gel, etc)

    Jana says:

    I LOVE green – so I am very excited to get my hands on some of these! I will use them to put up some pickles this summer for sure! I will place one on my antique canning jar display shelves as well – I only have Blue vintage Ball jars, still on the hunt for some of the other original colors especially GREEN. Thank you for your great blog and this fun opportunity! ~Jana

    For pear jelly!

    Jen says:

    I would use these jars to preserve sunchokes or perhaps brew vanilla extract.

  13. 2613
    Katie Moore says:

    I would use them for drinking glasses!

  14. 2614
    Carolyn S says:

    Honestly? Well first I’d line them up on my windowsill and drool over the color for a while (I did that with the blue jars). Then I’d start pawing through my recipes for things I could can that would still look nice in the jars. Tomato sauce? Probably not. Spiced pineapple chunks? Yea, that would be pretty…

  15. 2615
    Dorothy Glasier says:

    I would use them to can tomatoes from the garden this summer or… more likely… use them to drink from. They are such a great color!

  16. 2616
    Erin Yanish says:

    For sharing them with me, I would select a couple to give to others with something delightful in them. The other jars I would use for different herbs. I am delicate with the blues and now, greens! I don’t want to take the risk of them breaking during canning 🙂

  17. 2617
    Bonnie says:

    They would make great drinking glasses, and I could see using them as a vase, but I was thinking maybe some zucchini relish, or maybe some lemon basil jelly would look nice in them.

    Karyn Mummert says:

    I am really excited about the green jars! Love that Ball is making canning more fun with colors!

  19. 2619
    Cindy F says:

    I do the growing and my husband does the canning, so he might use them to can some homemade spaghetti sauce. I would use them for storing homegrown dried beans!

  20. 2620
    Sarah L says:

    I’d like to start making my own yogurt and these jars would be a good way to keep it.

    Lindsey D. says:

    I want to can pickles in them and then use them as decorations when all the pickles are eaten! =]

  25. 2625
    Ann says:

    Beautiful! I’d serve fresh summer cocktails in these jars–Pimms cup with a cucumber garnish, or lemonade with basil-infused vodka.

  26. 2626
    Dee says:

    I’d use some for drinking with my Cuppow–and some for jam come this June, when it’s strawberry season. Love green!

  27. 2627
    Jennifer says:

    Looking at them I kind of just want to stick them on a window sill and let the light stream through them. But given my general shortage of jars, that wouldn’t last long.

    Donna Anderson says:

    Green is my favorite color. I actually have some large, green, antique Ball jars that I use for my dry beans now. I can many things and also dehydrate and put in the jars, but I think I’ll use these for salads for lunch so I can show them off.

  29. 2629
    Angela says:

    Oooh, green jars! So pretty. I would put a couple aside for fresh flowers, the rest I’m sure would be put into rotation for whatever I will be canning this summer.

    Katrina says:

    I would probably use them for canning this season, or since they’re pretty use them drinking jars, but probably canning.

    I might just make mason jar lunches for my sweet high schooler.

    A whole mess of spicy pickled carrots, I think.

    Irina says:

    I always try making one or two jars in every batch of a larger size to give it as gift to my friends and also our cousins from Maine who have lots of kids and are generally a great bunch to hang out with in summer. I always appreciate when people eat my jam!

    Julie Carte says:

    We can lots of stuff in our home. We also give a lot of homemade gifts throughout the year & use the canning jars in our gifting. Luckily, we also get individual jars from lthers when they’re done. You can never have enough canning jars!!!

    Brenda Martineau says:

    I can almost all my food because of allergies and my diabetes. I would surely use these in my canning.

    Sabrina says:

    Sherry C says:

    Just found your site today and I am so pleased. Love to can from my garden. I think these jars will be terrific for some special “cookie in a jar” gifts for next Christmas! My family will love them. The rule is that they are to be returned to me if they want a refill.

    Debbie says:

    I would probably use the green for everyday food storage and drinking stuffs. Love the color! Thanks for the opportunity.

    I like these a lot more the the blue vintage jars. I especially like that they will be coming out in quart size! Perfect for my garlic dill pickles!

    There is absolutely nothing in this world that tastes better than southern sweet tea in a wide mouth quart Ball Jar. The only glasses I own, except for a few wine glasses!

  46. 2646
    Bettina Fleming says:

    I will use them for flowers, for storing extra green smoothies, for leftovers, &of course for canning the delicious produce from my garden!!!

    MARK KRAMER says:

    I would love to have these new jars in my collection. I would use them for canning this season. We can over 100 pints of salsa and numerous other spaghetti sauce pickles pears jelly peppers green beans. I could go on and on. I usually get my jars used mainly at garage sales to keep down the cost. Respectfully submitted. Mark Kramer.

    Christine Phillips says:

    I would be filling them with the peaches, pears and pineapples I didn’t have a chance to do this year (of course, with a few extra pints and quarts to help)!

  49. 2649
    Deb Beechy says:

    I will find something to can with them.
