    Default Jars

    Can anyone recommend the cheapest place to buy a bulk load of jam/preserve jars please?

    Have become addicted to putting things into jars and have now used every jar in sight!!!!

    Many thanks in advance

    Check the preserve section, you can get alot for £19. There use to be the Bristol Bottle Company but they went into receivership and someone recommended these to me but I haven't used them yet. Ikea is also a good place to get jars too.

    Will definately use now, they seem good for the money and I want to preserve quite a bit this year in olive oil (especially herbs).

    Andrewo have a read up first about the botulism that can occur when preserving in olive oil.
