Mason Jars - Where can I find them in Manhattan?
I just bought 40 lbs. of late season peaches and want to make some home made jam as a nice gift to some friends. Where can I get home canning tools and mason jars. Help me please!

Apart from random neighborhood hardware stores that tend to be expensive.. Zabar's has 'em, a little cheaper than Panhandler and often a bigger selection of sizes. They've gotten surprisingly hard to find in Manhattan, though, the KMarts don't even have them anymore.... If you can grab a ride to a Walmart somewhere, they usually have them by the case - a little cheaper still and easier to buy enough for a bushel of peaches.
Whatever you do - get canning - the longer those peaches sit around, the less point there will be to expending all the time, energy, and money on processing them...
Also, the Bowery Kitchen Supply store at Chelsea Market sells them...bet. 9 and 10th Aves, 15/16 Sts.
