Our warehouse was a sea of BLUE this morning! We anxiously welcomed Ball’s newest line the Collection Elite® Color Series jars made with blue glass.
These beautiful blue glass jars are available in three never-before-released sizes: regular mouth half-pint, wide mouth pint, and wide mouth quart and all three styles just landed in our warehouse and are available here.
Each jar is made in the USA of colored glass (not coated). Ball uses a fritted colorant derived from natural minerals mined from the earth. The colorant is added to the glass fritting process which dissolves the mineral into the glass mix. The colorant is inert within the glass walls, so it does not leach out.
The blue jars function exactly the same as Ball’s clear jars, so they are safe for water bath canning, pressure canning and food storage. They are also a beautiful addition to any Mason jar crafting or candle line. All jars are packaged in packs of four and come with silver bands and lids.
In addition to these beauties, Ball also added a Collection Elite regular mouth 8oz jam jar. The jars are packaged in packs of four and come with silver bands and lids. This jar is bound to be a favorite for your gifting jams and preserves! Like the vintage style jam jars, this one sports a squat shape and is covered with a variety of embossed fruits. It would also make a charming container for fruity and preserve scented candles. This jar is clear, but it could be topped with our festive colored regular mouth G70 CT lids for a little color. These are safe for home canning.
