very squat 1/2 pint Mason jars

  • 5

Anyone ever seen these for sale in the Seattle area? Here's a picture--they would be very cool to use for giving certain food gifts.

  1. I bought some of these at Fred Meyer (in East Wenatchee) last year when I was making jam.

    1. I've seen them at Fred Meyer's and WalMart. They come in packs of four and I think are part of the "platinum line". Kind of expensive compared with regular canning jars and the seals are not as easy to find.

      1. re: chococat

        Greenwood hardware and even Hardwick and Sons are worth a look.

      2. The Greenwood Market on 85th just west of Greenwood and next to Fred Meyer. They usually have all the sizes and the 1/2 pint sizes. The cost is around $12 for 12. The only problem is that they tend to run out of the 1/2 pint ones. They are located towards the back of the store on top of one of the frozen food freezers.

        1. I'm outside of Seattle, but found these at my local QFC, so may be worth checking at QFC in Seattle. I think I paid about a dollar a jar, so not as cheap as regular jars, and it's slower to can with these than the regular 1/2 pint jars because you can't fit as many in the canner at once, but since they're so different they're great for gifts.
