OK so you’ve made your jam, filled to the brim of your favourite fruity flavours and vivid summer colours, except there is one problem, you don’t know where to store it? There is one jar that can find a proud home for your jam, and that is the Kilner.
We’ve all seen them. Those cute little glass jars with that familiar gingham patterned lid? To give you a bite size in Kilner jar history, the original Kilner Jar was invented by John Kilner & Co way back in the 1840’s. Ever since this early date of production the widely renowned food preserving creation has remained a grand and practical benchmark for other preservers to follow.
Whether its pickling jars, spice jars or jam jars, each Kilner preserving jar presents us with charming character, robust features and a timeless image. All of this combined makes Kilner jars the ideal compartment to store your food, herbs, spices or jams. Commonly, Kilner jars are used to pocket up home made jams, marmalade, lemon curds and any other preserved foods.
However, this isn’t where it ends. These pretty and dainty food storage jars can even be used as alternative glass sweet jars or to store other food items.
You may have even seen these jars in your Granddad’s garage, home to thousands of loose screws, nuts and bolts. Credit to versatility of the jars, as well as the authentic and homely atmosphere reflected within the Kilner range.
