A sweet older lady gave me all her canning jars today -- she's moved into assisted living and won't be canning anymore. And some of them even have last year's produce in them, so it's an extra gift! WOW! what a generous thing to do, I'm touched by her thoughtfulness, and really giddy about getting them home and washing them up I have to go back later today or tomorrow and get the last of them, but we ran out of boxes. We brought 3 large boxes (two layers of jars) and a half dozen small boxes out. She even had some rings and seals. Some really cool old seals too, but she said just to use those after we've opened jars and are storing them in the fridge - not for processing. Just wanted to share with other canning gals who would appreciate the amazing gift!
