How to obtain jars in Europe?
    #4525483 - 08/12/05 05:51 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Does someone know how us folks from Europe can get hold of these 1/2 pint Ball or Kerr jars for mushroom cultivation? I searched thourougly all shops and these type of jars simply aren't available in my country.

Could plain glasses which approximately correspond in volume and shape to Ball/Kerr jars be used as a subsitute?

Or is there some place on the Net where original jars can be purchased cheaply and shipped to any European country?

Any size works. I have results with jars as small as two deo sprays.

Search grocery stores for jam, jelly, pickle or any type wide mouth jar. If you find some, make a purchase, eat or dispose of content. That may give you a few jars to get started with.

Stubby whiskey glasses work - with tinfoil - as a lid - for PF style cakes.

Thanks everyone for the input.

For start, I think I'll go with stubby whiskey glasses.

I don't know if they ship to Europe, but you could ask them. This is where I get my jars:

Somewhere in the FAQ is a storey about bloke's journey into cultivation... he found 'preserve' jars at a grocery store over there.

I wonder why in the heck there's no canning jars over there? I guess they don't do a lot of canning in Europe aye? lol!

Anyways. I love to eat pickles. I save the 1 gallon pickle jars for spawn use. They work great, but you'll need to pc the seed for 2 hours.

Yep canning is not popular in europe. Rye is also hard. I have got tapered jars with jam. Now I use any old jars and case. Look in catering supply stores, cash and carrys or restaraunts for large jars. Many jars in supermarkets have 100% free offers. I have a 860ml jar of mayo, I can get beetroot in 1.1L jars, but I hate beetroot! still 1/4 the price of buying a empty 1L jar but I do not like wasting food. Maybe I could empty them in a homeless shelter.
