Weck canning jars

rainey Dec 28, 2008 06:24 PM

Looking for a source for Weck canning jars on the West Coast so I can afford the shipping.

I have the addie of the IA distributor but shipping will be as much as the jars. =o

    I believe that in the past I've called them to find out where their jars are carried in my area - you might want to give that a try. I love those jars - so beautiful.

      Yes, I agree that they're beautiful and I love the ones I have.

      What I'm doing now is I've discovered those tiny pies in jars and I'd love to be able to send my son in college some pies occasionally. All the wide mouth/no neck jars seem to have been bought up or discontinued and Weck is one avenue I thought I'd pursue.

      Calling the distributor is a great idea. I'll do that.

        Please explain "tiny pies in jars"!

          She used really tiny jars. I'm thinking half pint is the right size for a college guy.

            Oh, they're frozen, not canned, I don't see how you can mail these to a college?
            But the Weck website offers many sizes from Illinois. If shipping is high, it is a one time payment for jars you will use over and over, except of course if you give them all away!

      I've found them at Sur la Table. Not sure they carry the entire line but they have some of them.

        Heath Ceramics in L.A. has them, if you're still looking ...

          FABULOUS! I am still looking for them and they seem to have the exact size that I don't have that I wanted.

          Thanks sooo much!
