    Default 56 jars + vintage canning kit

    I'm so excited. I found this little bargain on ebay last night and I'm going to bid on it. It's only $36 at the moment but as it's 2000kms away the postage will be a killer. I emailed the seller who is an absolute gentleman and he said their are 7 or 8 boxes. To send them by post would cost $15.50 per box but he said he'd take them to the bus depot for me and that would cost $5 per box!

    There are 33 small jars, 13 mediums and 8 large, they all belong to his granny. After Sunday I hope they will belong to me!

    I wouldn't bid on it. I can get modern day canning jars - ones that require two part lids - at a thrift store for $1 each.

    I didn't get it. When I went to make my bid the price had risen to $202.50! I'm currently looking for jars at garage sales and I'll get a big boiler somewhere.

    My chef son wants to learn preserving too. He wants to preserve lemons and to make chilli oil. We make a good team.

    I'm sure you'll find some jars at garage sales--if you were closer to me, I'd give you all of my mom's old jars---she has a ton and doesn't use them anymore!
