Made from deep violet glass, the jars featured in this week’s Infinity Jars Giveaway can help preserve color and flavor!
I spent most of my time extolling the virtues of mason jars, but truly, my jar love knows no bounds. I appreciate the beauty of old apothecary jars, and have a weird fascination with large vintage peanut butter jars. Most recently, the deep violet jars sold by Infinity Jars have been the objects of my interest and fascination.
Made from specially pigmented glass that renders the jars nearly black (you’ll find that they’re actually a deep purple-y blue), they are smell-proof, block harmful UV light, and are thicker than your run-of-the-mill jam jar.
They are designed to help extend the lifespan of foods, salves, and other ointments that are sensitive to light. I’ve found that they do a really nice jar preserving the color and flavor of dehydrated foods, which often lose their vibrancy after a few months on the shelf.
The jars you see pictured here are from the Screw Top Variety Gift Pack and the sizes range from 50ml to 1L. I have my hibiscus flowers tucked into the largest jar to stop their light-related color loss.
This week, I have one of these jar gift packs to give away to a lucky Food in Jars reader. Use the widget below to enter the Infinity Jars Giveaway.
