Ball® USA Regular Mouth Half Pint (240ml) Glass Preserving Jars are ideal for fresh preserving recipes such as jams jellies sauces mustards and flavored vinegars. Ball's famous glass jars and closures go beyond fresh preserving to help you with serving creative décor and gift giving.
These Preserving jars come complete with a single use flat lid that has its own inbuilt seal and a reusable screw on band to hold the lid in place during the preserving process.
Ball® preserving bottles can be used wherever you might otherwise have used Fowlers Vacola bottles: they fit inside Fowlers Vacola stove top and electric units, as well as in the Ozfarmer Preserver (see on this page) They can also be used in pressure canners, with the advantage that you can double stack them on top of each other as the lid is flat (you need to put in a rack or something flat if you are trying to stack Fowlers Vacola bottles due to the clips on top).
Aside from being a lot easier to use: all you have to do when preserving is make sure the top rim of the jar is clean and clear of food debris, place the flat lid on top of the jar and then screw on the band finger tight. The bottle is then ready for processing. After the food has cooled, you can check for a seal and you can store without the screw band which can then be reused for processing other jars. Some people prefer to leave the band on for aesthetic reasons. If you do this, it is advisable to remove the band, thoroughly clean around the bottle and then replace the band to reduce the chance of corrosion.
Replacement lids with the inbuilt seal cost about the same as a replacement packet of Fowlers Vacola seals so in the long run, these are very cost effective and so easy to use.
