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 $7.05 (reg. $17.43). This size is perfect for jams, jellies and sauces. That is .59 a jar!
You can also get the 12 ct Ball Smooth Sided 32 oz jars for $8.98 (reg. $10.47). That makes these just .75 a jar. These are great for canning or gifts since the sides are plain you clearly see the contents.
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 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.”
