Giveaway: Mason Jars from Orchard Road

August 15, 2016

Orchard Road pint jars

This week’s giveaway comes from our friends at Orchard Road. They are makers of lovely, simple mason jars in three sizes. The quarts and pints come in both regular and wide mouth versions, and the half pint jars come in just the regular mouth variety. Lids and rings are sold separately, and you can choose between traditional two-piece lids or decorative one-piece lids.

All the Orchard Road jars are sold in packs of six and come in sturdy boxes that fully contain the jars. For those of you who struggle to find closet space for your finished jars, having boxes that keep out the light is such a helpful thing.

I’ve had Orchard Road jars in my canning gear for the better part of two years now and I can report that they are as hardworking and durable as you want your jars to be. Additionally, I’m always happy when I run across an Orchard Road jar when pulling gear for various projects, because I find the minimal embossing and general hand-feel to be particularly pleasing.

  • Received a bunch of loquats from a neighbor so made loquat cinnamon jam and loquat chutney. Both got great reviews!

  • I just canned your “basic tomato salsa” and I love it! So happy to be making holiday presents ahead this year ๐Ÿ™‚

  • It’s not exactly canned, but my daughter gave me some very tart, cling stone peaches. They have taken up residence in a vintage Mason jar from my Grandmother’s collection, along with some sugar, a couple of lemon slices and a quantity of vodka.

  • I just pulled peach pie filling from my water bath canner. Yesterday was tomato sauce and tomatoes in the pressure canner. Next is green beans, beats, pears, on and on and on….:)

  • Canned tomatoes, but at the same time I found this wonderfully simple roasted Roma tomato sauce with garlic that could be frozen. I generally don’t have a good opinion of Romas, because I’m not that picky about juiciness, but this sauce converted me.

  • I’ve been doing as much Zucchini Pickles as I can, as I know a jar of them doesn’t last very long around here.
    These are nice jars. Thank you for passing along the info ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Most recent canning was peaches, up next pears. And I’ve got to find something interesting to do with my blueberries…

  • I recently made my first attempt at spicy dill pickles. They’re OK… not great (sort of bitter at the end?)… so I’m going to try again. First attempt at bread and butter pickles turned out much better, so I need to make another batch.

  • I canned 12 quarts of pickles two weeks ago, and my tomatoes are getting ripe, so I’ll be canning those soon. I’d love to win a few more jars so I can try canning some peppers. Thanks for all your inspiration!

  • I canned strawberry kiwi jam and cantaloupe jam on the same day! It was my first time canning and everything turned out great!

  • I canned some blackberry jam last night — made from blackberries picked during the sweltering heat and humidity this past weekend! Now that was a labor of love ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I canned for the first time on Sunday and it was so exciting. I’ve been wanting to do it forever and grew my own pickling garden this summer. Sunday I used your recipes to pickle tomatoes, beets & one jar of cucumbers. Can’t wait for my next harvest to do more!

  • I recently made a batch of your (delicious!) maple plum butter, and apple-pear butter, vanilla plum jam, eggplant tomato spread, and spicy peach preserves. I have about 15 lbs of pears and a bowl of tomatoes to process next!

  • I recently pickled Bing Cherries. They were delicious! Soft but sturdy and just the perfect amount of sweetness. I just recently started canning/pickling and ran across your site – excited to start trying some of your recipes!

  • I just canned 3 gallons of homemade salsa and 12 quarts of dill pickle spears! My co-workers love me this week ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Apple jelly to use as pectin…if I don’t keep putting in on biscuits with butter.

    Marisa…when you going to visit Asheville, NC and show off your new book?

  • Last weekend my BFF and I made:
    Cabernet Sauvignon Spicy Black Pepper Balsamic Jam
    Plum Spicy Black Pepper Balsamic Jam
    Pluot Bourbon Chipotle BBQ Sauce
    Plum Jam with Black Pepper
    We ate way too much of the spicy jams with cream cheese and crackers!

  • Simple, lovely blueberry jam. It’s a way to share a taste of my home (the PNW) with friends in the place I’m calling home for now (Hawaii).


  • I love the look of these canning jars, very simple. I am an urban forager and last weekend I canned wild mustang grape jelly.

  • I bottled plum jam, from free plums we picked that have fallen & been smashed on the parking lot of my daughter’s apartment for the last 5 years. We used some of that jam to make saucy meatballs over rice for dinner last night. One part BBQ sauce with one part jam, & 2 spoons of your tomato jam stirred in. Add meatballs & served over instant rice, with a veggie on the side.

  • I’ve made two batches of jam, neither of them turned out very well ๐Ÿ™ Hoping to give it one more try- with my new jars ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I put up 16 pints of honey peaches and was on the site to get the honey vanilla peach jam recipe when I saw this.

  • I just picked a bunch of peaches from a u-pick orchard near me. I canned a few jars of preserves and lots of peach slices. Roasted tomatillos salsa is next on the list as my tomatillo plants are going bonkers.

  • I’m new to canning!!! 2 weeks to be exact. So far everything has sealed successfully. Thank God!!! Today I was at one of my local farm and feed stores looking to purchase more items and jars for my new hobby. I came across the Orchard Road Jars and considered buying them but chose not to cause I wasn’t familiar with the brand. Tonight I come across your blog and I see this post and now I’m curious to try this brand. I do like the cute designs on the lids and bands that I saw at the store today. Came home today and right away I made this Hot Pickled Relish recipe I’ve been excited to make. It looked like an old recipe my stepmother used to have. Gave it a try and I believe it’s going to be exactly what she used to can. I’m going to have to check out some of your cookbooks. I’ve read great reviews!!!

  • I haven’t been doing much canning lately; it’s been very hot. The last thing I canned was a cantaloupe jam.

  • The most recent thing I canned was pickled jalapeรฑo rings with a bit of garlic. I am thinking a bit of mustard seed added in would be nice.

  • Food in Jars spicy garlic dill pickle recipe is always a winner , sweet pickle relish
    and bread and butter pickle recipes are also terrific – I’ve been lucky to have
    great pickle plants this year, must have put up 50 quarts of different things – next up
    tomatoes followed by peppers!

  • I haven’t canned anything yet this summer, but I’d love to try the gingery peach butter you posted this week. I’m waiting to get enough tomatoes out of the garden and to see if the bunnies left us enough beans to can.

  • Our most recent processing was tomatoes. We put up 75 lbs this past monday (instead of our usual 50 lbs). My kids appetites are growing!

  • I canned some strawberry lemon perserves. They are yummy but didn’t set right so I may take your advice from a different post and rename it syrup!

  • I made a batch of low sugar Strawberry Jam. I wanted to can my garden tomatoes but they are not doing well this year. Some are splitting and other have blossom rot.

  • I made Pauli’s Pickles. So good and so easy! really need some more jars and these would be awesome! Thanks for the giveaway!

  • 40 pounds of cucumbers…bread and butter pickles, dill, kosher dill and refrigerator pickles. (Have to support my local farmer who was robbed in their farm stand from his and her “Honor system”. People are rotten). Anyway, going back tomorrow and planning to can all day Saturday again! Support your local growers!

  • I did eight jars of dill pickles from cucumbers I got at the Farmers Market and four jars of “Estate Dills” from cucumbers (and garlic) I grew here at home. Urban Ag!

  • My friend has an apricot tree and we canned 14 quarts and 9 pints in syrup, then made your recently posted simple apricot jam – 9 pints, and another 9 pints spiked with a little cinnamon and cloves. It was a marathon but worth it!

  • My most recent project was blueberry jam with cardamom and ginger – kind of like a chai spice blueberry jam. can’t wait for it on a fresh-out-of-the-oven scone this winter.

  • My husband is renovating my kitchen just in time for making applesauce. Would love to try new jars to show off in my beautiful new space

  • I bought 1/2 bushel of Georgia peaches from The Peach Truck (the best peaches I’ve ever had) and, for the first time, canned peaches. They are wonderful – we’ll be so sad when they’re all gone later this winter.
