ReLocavore: Redefining "local"

A locavore moves from Wisconsin to New Hampshire and rediscovers what "local" means.

Wide Mouth Canning Jar Accessories


Thanks to Cool Tools for their recent overview of wide mouth canning  jar accessories.

They covered:

  • The Cuppow: A lid that lets you drink from your canning jar.
  • The Kraut Cap: An airlock for a canning jar for anaerobic fermenting.
  • Re-Cap: A pour spout and lid for a canning jar. This would be great for salad dressings.
  • The Holdster: A handle for a canning jar.

I would also add these other accessories that extend the usefullness of your canning jars:

  • The Bnto from Cuppow: A cup that fits inside a canning jar, giving two separate storage spaces.
  • Plastic jar lids: Dishwasher-safe and reusable lids for foods that are NOT shelf stable.
  • Shaker jar lids: Turn your jar into a spice shaker. I use this for nutritional yeast on my popcorn.

  1. I see these attachments (gadgets) as extravagances rather than necessities. I did like the plastic lids so you can store your herbs. I canned 9 quarts of beans from my garden yesterday. I’m running out of wide mouth quarts.

  2. Do you have regular mouth quarts? I almost never see them anymore. I don’t know if we’ll can beans this year. I did a bunch last year and we barely touched them over the winter. Maybe I need to lay in some cans of mushroom soup and FFos so we can have green bean casserole anytime. Then we’ll definitely eat more green beans!
