canning jars in uk
    #869820 - 09/08/02 04:57 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

hi people

Theres only one type of jar I have ever found that dont go in at the top and are wide mouthed.. (and believe me - i have checked many supermarkets!) it is:

"Bonne Maman" Jam - look for it in bigger supermarkets, it looks quite amature design, its "fresh" jam. I think they are about ?1.15 a jar.

Alternatively, you could just use normal glasses, but attach two layers of foil over the top

If you find anywhere selling 1/2 pint wide mouthed jars, please be so kind to let me know  :wink:

PS I got my spores from www.mushmush.nl - they are based in the Netherlands, they are reasonably priced (free spore if you order 3) and they came within about a week of me ordering and I had no problems growing my shrooms :smile:

hey man
thanks for the quick reply
ill be sure to look for the jam jars... but will mean emptying jars of all the jam huh....
and if i do come across anything else, i will let you know :smile: :cool:

as for using glasses: yeah i read about the tinfoil elsewhere as well but hoping u can help me on this.
if the glass doesnt have a lid and just has multiple layers of foil, wont that still leave an entry point for contaminants to get in?  :confused:

thanks once again man

peace

[edit:ps - been looking around on mushmush and they do have decent prices. i like the order 3 get one free syringe. thanks for the link man!]

i found 3 brands of wide mouth jam jars all the same jar. i found empty jars the exact same being sold for jam making but it was actually cheaper to buy the jam and throw it out!

I have been using the Bonne Manan jam jars(?1.19 in Sainsburys)They work perfect...Someone said that Habitat sells the same kind of jars for 50p,although they are a touch smaller.If anyones been to Habitat let us know....
      I tried a plastic Tupperware style container in the pc but it melted :tongue: It was a cheap container,i wanna try a proper microwaveable container to see what happens....
      I got my first print from FSRE(thanks Eric),I got my syringes from mushmush as well...At the mo' ive got the fridge full of GT and Mexican mycelium/honey water(i made way too many jars  :smile:  Just need a lot more CHEAP jars....Peace

Pictured are the 1 3/4 cup size which is a bit large,I use the 1 cup size.After 3-4 uses,the cover has to be taped on. New ones with tight fitting lids would probaly even work for agar. These DO NOT MELT in the pressure cooker,but after a few uses,the lid loosens up a bit.
Anno uses the pickle/mayo jars for spawn,not cakes (as far as I know). These Ziplocks work great for cakes.

No Ziplock jars over here  :frown:  They dont really sell caning/mason jars either  as no one over here preserves their own stuff...
  I have seen a place that sells autoclavable straight sided pvc containers(for laboratory use)...I have mailed them to get a couple of samples and will give them a test in the pc.If they work out ok i'll let post up the results....Peace

They also sell the same jars in Asda. The jam is called "Continental" and I think it's slightly cheaper than Sainsburys.

In reply to:

The bottoms are made of polypropelene which is safe for autoclave use. The lids are not and will deform under high heat.

same where i am. however i did get large 3 litre jars in a turkish shop selling pickled tomatoes in them. i got a 5 litre jar of pickles too. i am still eating the bastards and dont want to toss them out even though i cant wait to use the jar! try a cash and carry which will have large jars of tomato sauce etc for catering companies or go to a local restuarant and offer to buy their empty jars, tell them youll be back in a few weeks

i'll be crusing by tottenham court road tomorrow and i'll check heals/habitat for any canning jars...

but yeah it is pretty difficult to find any type of unused jars. when i was growing, i just brought back with me a box of half pints from America...

but if your friend is right and they have some jars around tottenham court road for .50p then i'll surely update you guys :smile:
