Walmart has some great prices on various sizes of Ball Canning Jars right now. Shipping is free with a $35+ purchase or select in-store pickup to avoid shipping.
Plus, you can get 12 ct Ball Regular Mouth 16 oz canning jars for $6.07 (reg. $17.43). This size is perfect for jams, jellies and sauces. That is .51 a jar!
You can also get the 12 ct Ball Smooth Sided 32 oz jars for $8.22 (reg. $10.47). That makes these just .67 a jar. These are great for canning or gifts since the sides are plain you clearly see the contents.
I love this 4 pk of Ball Blue Quart Sized Canning Jars that is $6.36 (reg. $9.92). These are a bit more expensive but are perfect for decorating or using as vases.
These nice Wide Mouth Jars are not only good for home canning, they make a great option for presenting a gift. There's 100's of gift ideas for these jars found on Pinterest here. I like to layer mine with a S'more Recipe. I warn you, it's addictive!
S'mores in a Mason Jar:
1 ½ cups Teddy Grahams cracker cookies
1 ½ cups miniature marshmallows
1 ½ cups milk chocolate chips
½ cup brown sugar
Layer the ingredients into a 1 quart jar or other quart sized container.
Your card should have the cooking instructions: “Preheat oven to 350º F. Spray 9” square baking pan with cooking spray. Melt 1/2 Cup Butter (1 stick) and pour into the bottom of the pan. Add the ingredients from the jar and press firmly. Bake for 15 minutes. Cool completely. Cut into squares.”
