It’s the beginning of October and that means that it’s time to acknowledge and thank all the businesses who help keep the lights on over here at Food in Jars HQ. I am continually grateful for their support!
In the top spot, we’ve got Cuppow! They are the creator of the original mason jar travel mug topper and the BNTO, a small plastic cup that transforms a canning jar into a snack or lunch box. They also recently expanded their product line to include branded jar coozie and they’ve teamed up with the EIO Kids Cup folks to bring the manufacturing of that kids drinking system onto US soil.
Mason Jar reCAP is a company based right here in Pennsylvania. They are the producers of the original reCAP pour lid and have since expanded to include the reCAP Flip (check out their new glow-in-the-dark lid). Recently, they launched a Kickstarter to help fund their newest innovation, the reCAP EXPLORE. It glows and has a build-in magnification lens.
Fillmore Container is a family-owned business based in Lancaster, PA and sells all manner of canning jars, lids, and other preservation gear. They also publish a blog that is a very useful resource for canners. Recently, they wrote about knowing when to can or freeze, and posted about the new honey jars they’re carrying. Make sure to check their blog on Monday, when they launch a giveaway of Brown Eggs and Jam Jars.

Mrs. Wages makes pectin, vinegar, and more canning mixes than I can count. Their website is an incredible preserving resource and I can’t say enough good things about their salsa mix. Sign up for their newsletter for monthly installments of canning goodness.
Jar-Z is new to the sponsorship line-up and I’m so happy to have them on board. They make neoprene cozies for jars that slip on easily, provide insulation, and offer an easy grip as well. You can order basic covers, or place a customized order for weddings, parties, and family reunions!
Fermentools offers a brilliant fermentation starter kit that involves a heavy-duty glass pickling weight, an airlock, a lid with a reusable rubber seal, and mineral-rich salt. Get one (or several!) to help turn your CSA goodies into naturally fermented pickles.
Hobby Hill Farm is another new sponsor. Based in Powhatan, Virginia, they sell locally made jams and preserves, homemade pretzels, candies, and cheese making kits. What’s more, if you’re in the area, owner Sharon regularly teaches cheese making classes around central Virginia. They’re launching a brand new website an minute now, so make sure to head over see how great it looks!
If your company or small business is interested in becoming a sponsor, you can find more details here. I offer discounts for multiple month purchases and am always happy to work with your budget.
