Happy May, dear readers! It’s the start of the month and that means that it’s time to thank the businesses that help make this site possible. Please do show them that you appreciate their support with your time and attention!
Lancaster, PA-based and family-owned Fillmore Container are with us again! They offer all manner of canning jars, lids, and other preservation gear and carry just about every Ball jar currently available, so if you’re looking for a particular style, check them out. There are also just a couple seats left in the Food Preservation Retreat we’re hosting together in June, so if you’ve been on the fence, make sure to sign up.
Our friends over at EcoJarz are another stalwart sponsor. They make an array of products designed to fit on top of mason jars, including cheese graters, coffee brewers, and stainless steel storage lids. They recently added mason jar toothbrush holders to their line-up, which is such a clever, everyday tool!
Back for another month is McDonald Paper & Restaurant Supply. Based in Brooklyn, they are open to the public and sell all manner of culinary supplies. Restaurant supply stores are a great way to get affordable, durable kitchen gear (including jars!). I’m a big of their big food storage containers for macerating fruit for jam and I love these recyclable lidded aluminum containers for those times when I’m bringing food to friends and neighbors.
Mason Jar Lifestyle is a one-stop shopping site for all the jar lovers out there. They sell all manner of mason jar accessories and adaptors. If you’re in the market for lids, straws, sprouting lids, fermentation weights, airlocks, tea light converters, cozies, they are there for you.
Also on board is Sticker You. They sell custom die-cut vinyl stickers, labels, decals, tattoos, magnets and more, in any size, shape and quantity. They have a wide variety of labels you can order to make your preserves look slick and professional.
Moxy & Zen have joined us this month to spread the word about their Pickle Recipe Underwear. Made from breathable organic bamboo, these are the perfect thing for the person in your life who wants to wear their pickle love on their person. Use the code “foodinjars” for 20% off your order.
