What jars should I use for jam?
Glass jars are the quintessential jam jar for good reason. They’re easy to sanitise, can be used in the refrigerator or at room temperature, and are easy to seal shut for freshness. Glass withstands the heat of hot jam during the making process, unlike plastic that will melt, distort and effect the overall taste of the product. When filled with homemade sweet treats and decorated with a bow, small jam jars also make the perfect gift for friends and family. Some jars come with clip tops and plastic rings for an air-tight seal, which are slightly more durable than the thinner metal screw lids.
