nice.  a large serving spoon works well.  Its 2 scoops with a regular large eating spoon.  That soup spoon works quite well.

Dude, I like the pic where you marked the jars to show how far to loosen
the lids. So simple but I don't think I've ever seen that done before.

:cheers:

I saw a guy who used these jars for agar.  He took a hole saw and cut thin lexan to the exact size of the jar rim then used the metal ring to secure it into place.  Seemed like a decent idea and much better visibility.  I just question how well it would seal.

Nice work!
I’m going to make the switch to Reusable recyclable glass 1/2 pint jars too.
It haunts me how many hundreds of plastic Petri dishes I’ve left on this earth for thousands of years.

Thank you for a great write up!

:rockon: I’ll give this a go. I think I have some lme. Just got these tonight.

I’ve also got about 24 plus wide mouth half pints I’m not using anymore.



A plus I just noticed on this tek, no drilling of lids needed.

Just did some of these last week after gettig frustrated with the way my tiny jars have that "quilted" looking glass 2/3 of the way around aren't viewer-friendly.  I like it.  Not very space-friendly but I can see my culture very easily and makes environentally-friendly me very happy.  :toast:

I've got 2doz of the 100mm and 12 of the 75mm. I think I'll get more of the 75mm since I'm starting to like the smaller dishes after using Pasty Plates. Haven't poured yet and didn't try no-pour. The 100mm are still sitting in ziploc containers after sterilizing them. Might pick up some bigger Ziploc containters and see if I do a no-pour without boiling over.

Been using ziploc and glad no-pours for the last few weeks.

one of the things I like about the 1/2 pint is the versatility.  You can use it a hundred plus time for agar and still use it for canning food when desired.  So the investment is more than just for agar dishes.

I was actually looking at 2oz-4oz jars earlier this week. Your tek kinda has me motivated to go ahead and pull the trigger, but dammit I need to use up the tools I already have first before I buy more crap, lol.

That's the only thing I don't know about PP is how many sterilizations it can handle.
