When I think of glass jars, I automatically think of my grandmother preserving some type of jam or jelly, along with crushed tomatoes and other yummy food products. But then I think of my grandfather, who would take some of my grandmother’s glass jars and use them to store all kinds of nails, screws, thumb-tacks and other assorted workshop items. Whatever the use, it just goes to show how useful glass jars are.

Depending on your needs, you will have to pick what type of lid you want. If you will be making jam, you will need a jar that can provide an air-tight seal. This means you want canning jars, which typically have two-part lids that screw on.
