ball mason jar replicaA series of limited edition Ball Mason fruit jars are being made to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the first Perfect Mason fruit jar introduced by Ball in 1913. The vintage-style blue pint jars resemble the originals, but have the words “100 Years of American Heritage/Made in U.S.A.” embossed on the sides. In March, the blue jars will be discontinued and replaced by green jars in pint and quart sizes. They will also be available for a limited time. Price: about $15 for a set of six.

Canning and canning jars are super popular now. Organizational thrift stores Goodwill and Savers in MN are accepting and offering them. If I were you, and if I did not want to keep them, I would try selling them on Craigslist. Look here, on ebay, and on etsy to see what they might be going for.

Just wondering if anyone knows what to do with old canning jars that were my Grandmothers years ago. Have many different kinds, mostly quart sizes, some smaller, pints and a few gallon jars. I am referring to jars that are older or different from a regular mason or kerr jar.

I just bought a set of the blue jars at the Christmas tree shop in Mishawauka, Indiana. I don't know if they all have them.
