Out with the old and in with the new. Lately, I’ve seen Weck canning jars everywhere- including my inbox. Here is an email I got from Blue Hill at Stone Barns today. I think these jars give canning a fresh and hip look (yes, I think jars can be hip)! So throw out the Ball canning jars and start using Weck.
If canning isn’t your thing, you can use them for storing and serving foods. Fill them with a cheese spread, pesto, or a cold crab dip and you can go straight from the refrigerator to the table; place the jars on a cutting board with some grilled bread or crackers and you have an easy hors d’oeuvre. I could also see individual chocolate trifles in these jars.
This tall skinny one could even be used as a water pitcher; fill a couple with water then place them on a table during a dinner party.
