Vancouver: Canning supplies

food_alice Jun 18, 2009 12:03 PM


Does anyone know where I can get canning supplies in Vancouver? I have some Bernadin jars but need new snap lids, and am also looking for 'no sugar needed' pectin. Thanks!

    You can usually get that gear at Canadian Tire and even Safeway (I think Safeway brings more out in August but I think you can buy the lids and pectin now).

      If it's bulk you want try wellscan


      Superstore has the best prices on small quantities of ordinary rings/tops.

        Canadian Tire had a huge selection yesterday.

        I don't really do much canning, though I've made a pickle or two. I get my supplies (lids and jars) from the Home Hardware in my 'hood. I don't think they have pectin - but I know you can get this elsewhere quite easily.

          Thanks everyone! I managed to find a good selection (including the 'no sugar needed' pectin) at the IGA on Broadway and Arbutus.
