The neighbors brought me a bunch of freegan glass jars to use for canning.
There are some normal sized ones in there, ad a bag of small ones (half pint, I think). The half pint ones will be great for gift baskets I plan to do for Christmas.
side note: I plan to do baskets with stuff I’ve made and preserved myself. Like syrup, jam, dip, spreads, jelly… I also think I’m going to throw in some soap made by a wonderful little goat farm near my work.
I tried to give the neighbors money for the jars, but they were like “shit, we only paid $4 a box for them at a garage sale” and wouldn’t take my cash.
Now I need to order up my pots and funnels and tongs and pots and shit so I can get to learning how to can some shit. It’s still almost always a learning experience out here.
