Giveaway: New Ball Heritage Collection Green Jars

January 29, 2014

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. 

Sharing is caring!

  1. Well, these jars look perfect for putting up pickles (heh), but I think my mom would love them as flower vases and her birthday is coming up!

  2. Green! Would look fab on the counter or on shelves. Too pretty to put away in the pantry. I would store dry goods in these beauties!

  3. I’d use the jars for canning salsa, and canning corn. I would like to venture out on even more food this year!! Love the color!

  4. I think I would use them to make salsa or maybe tomato sauce. I think they would be an awesome addition to my canning line.

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  5. I would use some for storage in the bathroom, some for drinking glasses and the rest for canning. They are beautiful.

  6. I would use them for EVERYTHING! Storage. Drinking (I have sippy cup lids for jars) Mixing and gifting! Please pick me!

  7. I would use them to help replace my stock of jars. I lost a bunch after a house fire a few years ago, and have been trying to slowly bring my numbers back up. So I would use them for all kinds of things, from dry storage to whatever I am canning at the moment πŸ™‚

  8. If I was so lucky to win some of these beautiful jars I would use them for my favorite sweet pickles. I use my grandmother’s recipe and there are no better pickles in the world. Keeping my fingers crossed to be a lucky winner.

  9. The green hue of the jars seems to be a natural fit for pickles! I’m thinking pickled cukes, okra, green tomatoes, green beans, and ramps.

  10. I would use them for jams, jellies, preserves or bread & butter pickles. Thank you for offering the jars as a “giveaway” πŸ™‚

  11. I would use them for flower vases, to-go mugs and LOADS of deliciousness canned goods. I canned 98 recipes last year, gave half away… I could definitely use more jars!

  12. So many choices – pickled carrots and daikons; preserved lemons; dried herbs, and the list could go on.

  13. I volunteer at our local co op partly because it helps them grow healthy food in our community and partly because I can get good, organic fruits and veggies to put up during the year. They will look lovely in these jars and I will share them with our co op community. Hurray for good eating.

  14. I would use a few jars as vases to put flowers in for my daughter’s first birthday. I would use the rest to can pickles, jam, and anything else my sister and I may try this year. It is our second year of canning, and it has been a blast!

  15. I would use them in the spring first to display fresh cut tulips and daffodils, then end of summer for my honey and gingered carrots! Love these jars!

  16. I love the colorful jars for gifts, either of preserved things or just a really pretty way to give other edible homemades!

  17. I would use these beautiful unique jars to make special herb oils and Christmas gifts filled with my favorite canned food . These are super beautiful have to keep most for my self with my blue canning jars I cherish .

  18. I’d give them to my wife so she could make me wonderful food in jars. Not that I couldn’t, she just enjoys it so much and would love the jars.

  19. What a gorgeous shade of green! I think I’d use them for storing rices and pastas so they can be on display on my pantry shelf. Too lovely to shut up in the dark with my canned items.

  20. I will love them and hold them and call them George.(If you don’t know what that’s from I will cry) Then I will fill and empty them many times with good things to eat.

  21. Love this color. I’d use them for everything. Salads would store beautifully, as would salsa Verde and green beans. Hot pepper jelly would be awesome too.

  22. I would love to use these jars to learn to can. I’m trying to learn to take better care of my family. Putting up fresh foods would help a lot.

  23. Dill pickles would look so pretty! Hopefully we could use some of these jars for our first honey harvest too πŸ™‚

  24. I would use these beautiful green jars to can okra & pickles.Okra looked beautiful in blue so I know they would look even better in the green.

  25. These are so beautiful. I would use them to store things in my kitchen and to give gifts to friends and more!!

  26. I love the green color! I could think of a couple uses, either for canning some aronia berry jelly in or for just drinking out of, as you mentioned.

  27. I loved my blue jars and the green is just fabulous ! I use my jars for canning, storing dry goods, dried herbs, dehydrated foods and mostly anything I can think of. I also have a collection of old jars.

  28. These beauties would be the vessel to hold my gorgeous Georgia peaches come summertime. Then in December, after the peaches have been eaten, I would incorporate them in my Christmas decorations.

  29. I’d use the jars to can my apple butter and tomato sauce. I just started canning last year and have been canning on a small scale as I’m still building my collection of jars.

  30. I’ve got a set of blue jars that I filled with coffee grounds and use to hold tea lights. I’ll probably use green jars for bread and butters or maybe or decorations for my sister’s wedding.

  31. These look like they would make awesome canning jars for pickles! I like to give them away at Christmas as part of out non-consumer Christmas tradition. The tinted jars would make for cute seasonal packaging!

  32. I love the softness of green glass. These would be great to fill with sand and a candle for pathway markers in the wooden trails,
