  • Canning supplies

    anyone have a good source of online canning supplies- jars, lids, etc. No one local carries anything, and I'm looking for quality, but cheap!

    Do you have a Big Lots or Ace/True Value Hardware? I think you can order on-line from Ace. Also check yard sales and then just buy new lids.

      Brosia, I found some jars at our local Ace hardware. They were the only ones right now that had them. Found a presto 23 qt pressure canner on Amazon for $71.00

        thanks, I'll try Ace. I didn't think of them.
        Got the canner covered, but I need jars, and it seems that shipping them is expensive, and risky! Too much breakage.

            Agway always has canning stuff, as does Ace & Tru Value Hardware, usually closer to the time though. My local Stop & Shop supermarket had one end cap of it, but my real find is Wal Mart. Good prices and a full stock in season, and still plenty now. There are on line places, and I turn to them when I can't get exactly what I want, but for the most part I stick to the places mentioned above. There is a place in PA that you can by pallets of jars from, and if I end up selling my jam, I will be heading out to get one as the price difference is worth the trip. You can order jars from Agway to, and usually they will give you a difference if you are ordering enough.

              Scored at Ace hardware! Walmart didn't have anything, nor Kmart or Target or Stop N Shop or any of the discount stores.
              Since money is always an issue, I did what I can and picked up 2 cases of quart size, 1 case of pint size, extra bands, lots of extra lids. I figure if I do that once a month for the next 2 or 3 months, I will have a very large supply ready for use for my garden harvest.
