Weck Jars & Peaches (+ Giveaway!!!)

IMG_5237IMG_5241IMG_5252IMG_5271IMG_5285


Sometimes I can be a creature of habit. It’s true. There are certain dining destinations in the area, with a vast array of delicious menu options, wherein I often end up ordering the same dish, time after time. Why mess with a good thing, I say? Fortunately, my spouse couldn’t be possessed of a more opposing mindset. He’s always dabbling, always down for a new thing, always game to experiment.

Which is how I’ve ended up using canning jars with metal screw bands and flat lids for years and years. They’re what I was used to, what I knew. Other options, with their glass lids, rubber bands, and metal clamps were foreign and, often, pricey. So it was, naturally, my husband, always down for something new, who proved to be the catalyst of change in my home canning endeavors. He returned one day last year from a stop to pick up chicken feed from our friend Natalie’s homesteading supply store Small Terrain with an array of Weck jars. Admittedly, they are quite pretty, and we both knew Natalie had a wonderful Weck selection, so it seemed like the time was nigh to move out of my comfort zone and try something different.

I’m so glad I took the leap. Weck jars come in a variety of lovely shapes and sizes, and just like the Mason jars those of us here in the states have become so accustomed to, permitted the jars don’t have scratches or nicks, can be used again and again. The rubber gasket/band does need to be replaced each time, though, which is also similar to the need to replace lids used in Mason jars per canning session.

And then serendipity struck. You all know how much I love serendipity. It’s as though the universe gently knocks on your door, whispering, “Hey, it’s alright. I know things seem chaotic and discordant and wonky, but there really is order permeating everything. It’s cool.” I received tandem emails a few weeks ago from Annie at Mighty Nest about hosting a Weck giveaway and Jamie at Sweet Preservation about being a canbassador again and receiving a shipment of Washington State stone fruit for preserving.

Since I’ve long been a fan of the two, preserving the stone fruits of Washington in lovely Weck jars seemed like a match made in canning heaven. If you’re not familiar with Mighty Nest, I encourage you to get to know them. Here’s their mission statement: Our passion is making it easier for families to live healthier, better lives. We are a one-stop online shop with 1,000+ healthy, natural products, while providing fun, educational content and fostering a community of caring parents. Sweet Preservation, as detailed by their website, is: a community-oriented endeavor of the Northwest cherry growers and soft fruit growers of Washington state aimed at promoting home preservation of Northwest grown stone fruits among North American consumers. The website serves as a go-to resource for canning and freezing stone fruits, offering how-to-tips, unique recipes, health information, customizable canning jar labels and more. See why I like the two so much?

Over the weekend, I put up batches of Honeyed Spiced Peaches (some jars got cinnamon sticks and whole cloves while others received a couple star anise-I love that I only used local South Carolina peaches, our own honey, water, and whole spices and nothing else here!) and my Peach Lavender Butter (the recipe is in Canning & Preserving). Most of the loot went into Weck jars Annie sent, but several also went into Kilner jars she’d also shipped to me, which are equally lovely. Clamp-top lids are so very pretty, yes? Yes!

But why keep all things lovely jar beauty to myself? Why not share it with you?! Yes! You! Today, in partnership with Mighty Nest, I’m hosting a giveaway for 18 Weck jars. Pictured in the Rafflecopter image below, the giveaway includes: Six mini Tulip jars (7.4 ounce volume), Six 1/4 Liter jars (12.5 ounce volume), and Six 1/2 Liter jars (19.6 ounce volume).

How exciting! To enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment below, saying what you’d like to can in these gorgeous jars, if they were yours. You’ll also see additional ways of increasing your chances of winning, as listed in the Rafflecopter below. The contest will run for one week, concluding next Monday, August 19th, at noon EST and is open to U.S. residents only. The Rafflecopter helps both Mighty Nest and I keep track of entries. It’s a new format for me, so we’ll just treat it as the experiment that it is.

Thanks to Mighty Nest and Sweet Preservation for their generosity! Here’s to serendipity, trying new things, and putting food in jars!!!

    Peaches in vanilla bean syrup and/or apple butter!

  • I’m hoping to make a couple batches of zucchini relish and corn relish in the next couple weeks, and I know it would look fantastic in those Weck jars!

    • Jess says:

      Is there a recipe you use for the zucchini relish?

      • jan canyon says:

        Here’s my Zucchini relish recipe

        Grind 10 c. zucchini, 4 c. onions, 2 lg. red bell peppers, and 4 carrots
        Put all into a large bowl, add 3 TB Kosher salt, coer with cold water and let stand overnight.
        The next day, drain and rinse in cold water, drain.
        Place into a large pot.
        add:
        5 c. sugar
        2 1/2 c. vinegar

  • Meryl says:

    Maraschino cherries and blueberry jam! I’ve been itching to do both!

  • Melanie J says:

    Blackberry jam is next on my list, plus it’s almost apple butter season! Thanks for the opportunity!

  • Jessica says:

    Oh your peach preserves look gorgeous, and the weck jars are lovely, too. I’d love to make a batch of peach butter with honey and thyme, and our pears will be ready soon, so perhaps a spiced pear butter. I’m eliminating refined sugars from my diet, and always experimenting with natural sweeteners.

  • Sarah says:

    Oh, aren’t they beautiful! I have figs coming my way this week and would love to put a batch of fig jam with cardamom & rosewater into lovely Weck jars.

  • Leah says:

    I’d like to do some pickling: I’m thinking nectarines, garlic, green tomatoes and cucumbers! (not together)

  • carolyn manney says:

    Kimchi!

  • Sacha Joy says:

    I’m getting ready to reduce down the beautiful plums from the front yard into a thick dark purple plum butter, just as soon as they get ripe. I’ve always been curious about trying Weck jars, but am – like you- a creature of habit when it comes to canning and simultaneously a bit of a cheapskate.

  • Stefanie says:

    I’d like to make blueberry key lime jam, kumquat marmalade, and strawberry honey jelly (my favorite) in these jars. Well, at least those, but a ton others come to mind too.

  • oukay says:

    The peach and lavender butter is something I would like to try again, especially in these lovely jars!

  • Kristin says:

    I’ve got 15 pounds of just picked blackberries from our friends’ farm that would love to turn into jam! (They will wait patiently in the freezer…) Thanks for the opportunity!

  • amanda says:

    oh I’d make some cardamom spiced pear butter. or more blackberry jam. fingers crossed for these beauties!

  • jonquil says:

    I would put up spiced plum jam (Grandchild #2’s fave) & Autumn chutney for myself :)

  • Torrey says:

    I’d like to use the jars for jam or applesauce – both favorites of my two and four year old. Thanks for the chance!

  • sarah says:

    i really would like to do some salsa and apple sauce. i think i’m finished with jam but maybe just some canned peaches as well :)

  • Mandi C says:

    I’ve been wanting to try these for a while now, but just like you I’m so comfortable using metal lids and bands. I would use these for many things but I think blueberry preserves would be especially pretty in them!

  • Liene says:

    With fall coming I’m sure they would get used right away when I start making applesauce and apple butter. Thanks for the chance.

  • Maria says:

    Holy Cow! This is a fabulous giveaway! Woohoo!! I’ve also been wanting to try the Weck jars. I started using the Tattler lids a while ago, but I really love the look of the Weck jars. And that there is nothing disposable!

  • Corina Andariese says:

    I would can salt cured lemon slices, orange marmalade, and habanero peach jam.

  • Aly says:

    Love to make old fashion pickles!

  • Marilla says:

    I want to make some lavender honey, corn & black bean salsa, and more habanero or hot pepper jelly. Love the Weck jars- they’re so beautiful!

  • sarah r lavigne says:

    blueberry jam

  • Kristin says:

    Picked okra for snacking and picked cucumbers for sandwiches! And experimental honey-sweetened jams and butters!

  • Anoush says:

    I’ve never used Weck jars before, but I’d probably use them for pickled carrots or some other sort of “specialty” pickle :-)

  • Terry says:

    Raspberry jam! Wouldn’t that deep red jam look beautiful in Weck jars?

  • Cindy says:

    I would share these jars with my sister-in-law. She makes the best pickled peppers to slather on a sandwich!

  • Beth says:

    Since I just got my bulk of lavender buds in the mail I would love to put up your recipe of Lavender Peach Butter! Yummm….

  • Alicia says:
  • noel miller says:

    I would love to can some spiced peaches from our peach tree!

  • Megan M says:

    Peaches, peaches and more peaches! Just got a bushel from the farmers market in Asheville!

  • Amelia says:

    At this point in the season, I think spiced peach butter is the only preserve I have left – woo hoo! Weck jars are the prettiest – thanks for a lovely giveaway!

  • Solducky says:

    Applesauce, tomato jam, sweet relish, you name it!

  • Melissa says:

    oh, i do love weck jars! my favorite thing to put in them is apricot jam.

  • Kate says:

    oh, so many things! I haven’t done any peaches yet this year (I’ve been too busy eating them!), so that’s probly first on the list. And then…we’ll see :)

  • Jodi Monroy says:

    I’d like to make fancy things that make good gifts!

  • Valerie McCarthy says:

    I would love to can ginger peach jam made with peaches from our farmer’s market! I haven’t made any yet this year, but have been loving fresh peaches.

  • Hannah says:

    Hot sauce, corn relish, blackberry jam and more!

  • Stephanie McFarland Ravenberg says:

    I would looooooooove to can peaches, homemade apple butter and carrot putting in these jars.

  • Sarah says:

    I love my Weck jars! And you definitely do NOT need to replace the rubber gasket each time. I’ve literally never replaced one and my jars seal without fail, using 2-year-old gaskets. I’ll replace them when they crack, otherwise it’s just a waste.

  • stasha says:

    I would can bachelor jam in these beauties! It’d make great Christmas gifts!

  • Megan says:

    Jewel colored jams :)

  • KJ says:

    Blackberry jam!

  • darah says:

    Hopefully some peaches, but I need to get in gear! We’re short on jam this year too – how did that happen? Such pretty jars!

  • Laura says:

    Pickles and maybe some homemade salsa??? Thanks for the lovely giveaway!

  • Such a great capture of summer.

  • LauraM says:

    I found a new recipe for orange thyme jam that I have been wanting to try and family always loves receiving some of my strawberry jam for the holidays. I’ve also been wanting to branch out in the fruit preserves this year and find something unique to do with apricots. I love using Wreck jars for preserves that I’ll be giving as gifts as it add a nice touch!

  • Devin Rose says:

    Peaches and apple butter!

  • Kira says:

    blackberry jam! pickles!

  • Kadi says:

    I have to admit… I wouldn’t just be using these jars for canning. My office job is pretty monotonous and dull.. so to spice things up, I retreat during lunch time. I take time out of my day to set up a pretty little display by a large window so I can escape the claws of my compliance files. I think I’d be prone to bringing a nice orzo salad and a few side dishes in a few of these jars. As for canning… I cannot wait for something quintessentially fall-like – apple butters and homemade peanut butters… Mmm!

  • Maggie says:

    I love wenk jars especially for jams. Blueberry is my favorite. Thanks for the chance to win.

  • Amanda says:

    I love Weck jars… We can all of our water bath goodies in them… Plus use them for homemade fruit on the bottom yogurt. Beautiful.

  • jessica says:

    I have never owned any Weck jars, but I have wanted to since I saw them in Europe. What I want to make is homemade BBQ sauce. My family loves BBQ, and I hate all the sugar and junk that go into the store brands.

  • Stephanie says:

    Pickled garlic, pickles, salsas, mustard, spices, fruit preserves! I would probably go on a spree and can anything I could :)

  • Janet Brown says:

    Apple butter, pear butter, and more yellow tomato jam with basil if I can find more yellow tomatoes.

  • jen says:

    I haven’t technically “canned” anything in Weck yet, but I did make an awesome lavender vanilla scrub with turbinado sugar and coconut oil! It smelled so good!

  • Kate says:

    My watermelon radishes just came out of the ground and need to be pickled; and soon the fennel will be ready – Pickled Fennel with Orange and Mint. Last, I have carrots spilling out of the ground and the fridge so at least some need to become North Indian Carrot Pickles to eat with Dal later this winter.

  • Michelle says:

    would love to make my homemade yogurt in these! beautiful

  • kristi says:

    Would love to try these. Maybe not even to can, just to store pretty things like herbs.

  • Kat says:

    These jars sure are purdy! This year, I’m hoping to make some pickled beets. Mmm..

  • Beth says:

    I love to can poached whole seckel pears in Weck jars – beautiful!

  • GardenFresh says:

    I’m super excited for ‘tomato seconds’ season at my local farm stand so I can stock up and make my favorite sweet and spicy tomato-ginger jam. I make it every year and canning them in Weck jars (which I’ve always thought were so pretty but couldn’t afford) would make things a bit more interesting this year :)

  • Peggy Sorensen says:

    It’s almost time to harvest Prickly Pear tunas (fruit) so I will be making Prickly Pear jelly! It’s a beautiful, rich bright red color so it will look so awesome in these Weck jars!!!

  • Leah says:

    Huckleberry Jam!

  • Yael says:

    Love this! My favorite would probably be peach jam as well! :)

  • Jennifer says:

    all things peaches…..ummmm

  • Liz says:

    peach salsa…. divine!!

  • heather says:

    raspberry preserves from this fall’s harvest

  • Samantha says:

    I would use them to can salsa with my very first tomato harvest! and maybe some jam, because we are big jam eaters around here.

  • Heather says:

    Weck jars are so lovely! I would totally put raspberry and blackberry jam in them. Or salsa.

    Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

  • sharon d. says:

    I would so love these! Thank you for the opportunity. I cannot wait for harvesting plums to make Plum Butter and I would love to make Salted Butterscotch Peach Jam again this year too :)

  • john hutchens says:

    I would like to use them for blueberry jam and rosehip jelly

  • jean says:

    I would definitely create a fig preserve to fill those beautiful jars.

  • Lynn Spencer says:

    I’d love to can my cardamom pear compote in these beautiful jars! Thanks for the opportunity.

  • Jenifer says:

    What won’t I use these for.

  • Hikergurl says:

    I would love put some spicy ketchup in that beautiful glass.

  • Sarah says:

    Your peaches look so beautiful! I just started canning last year and the first (and best!) thing I made was peach rosemary jam. That is what I would put in those beautiful jars.

  • erin says:

    Salsa!

  • carol says:

    Peach raspberry jam!

  • chelsea says:

    I haven’t canned before but I am just starting to learn and very excited and a tad overwhelmed by it and I really want to make homemade jam, maybe raspberry. Salsa would be great too. I think Weck jars are just lovely.

  • JamieK says:

    Peaches!

  • Alicia says:

    Tomato jam… It’s something new for me

  • Aimee says:

    That peach lavender butter looks divine; I’d love to try that! And with apple season just around the corner, oh boy! Spiced apple butter, here I come!

  • Kacey says:

    I’m dying to try my hand at my grandmother’s cinnamon candy apple butter. These would be perfect for that!

  • Kelly says:

    Anything jelly or dill :)

  • Christine says:

    This is my first year really canning and I’m waiting for all my tomatoes to ripen; I would definitely be filling these with tomato sauce, relish and ketchup!

  • deneen says:

    I would love to can anything & everything in weck jars!!

  • Signe says:

    Saucy tomatoes! Rhubarb jam and honey and salsas to share with family and friends!

  • Ann says:

    Yellow tomato basil jam and sweet red pepper jam. So beautiful in the Weck jars! Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

  • CindyK says:

    Tomato salsa jam. It would look gorgeous in Weck jars!

  • jodi says:

    Raspberry rosewater jam, black/blueberry jam, Sungold tomato jam… and anything else I dream up or get my hands on! Thanks for sharing!

  • amber m. says:

    Jams, applesauce, fermented green beans, tomato sauce, everything!!

  • Lilly says:

    Peaches!

  • Doug says:

    I would love to put some fresh Virginia peaches in those jars. I would also like to try sweet cherries. I used to have those as a kid. My mom and grandmother would preserve them, and they would taste so good in the “off season”.

  • Apricot jam and salsa. Not together though. Well, on second thought, apricot salsa sounds delicious.

  • Jennifer says:

    What a wonderful giveaway! I’d love to can strawberry jam in them. I love going to the strawberry fields every year with my family. The smell in the air is just divine. Opening up the jars of jam and smelling the delicious strawberries brings a little bit of summer back into our home when it’s cold. :-)

  • Sara L says:

    Peace marmalade would be a marvelous canning adventure!

  • Tara says:

    sweet tart cherry compote!

  • Oh those jars are so lovely! I would love to can cherry pie filling, peaches, honeyed apricots, tomato sauce, jam, etc in them! The only thing I’ve canned so far this summer is some mixed fruit jam. I might get to apple sauce later on when the apples come in, but I usually freeze that. Certain fruits that I am used to having in abundance while living in WA are in short, hard to find supply here in MT. There are many other great things about MT, though! Ooh, huckleberry syrup would be great canned in those jars!

  • Dawne Forrester says:

    Weck jars are so gorgeous, everything looks good in them, from relish to sugar scrubs :)

  • Nichole says:

    Yellow tomato peach jam !

  • Ashley says:

    What beautiful jars! A friend gave me a fabulous recipe for pear butter and I’ve been making it for several years now. It would look lovely canned in these jars.

  • Patricia says:

    I would can incredible fresh sweet peaches AND something new, chicken soup – someone sent me a recipe for the soup and then included the information on how they can it. I can’t wait to give it a try.

  • Claudette Hoyt says:

    I have enjoyed your blog for a long time now, and have just subscribed. I have been canning for a long time (over 40 years! yikes), anyway time to try new ways!! They are beautiful jars. I think my first try with them would be jams. Also Huxley is the cutest :)

  • Jessica says:

    Oooo. I have 5 quarts of wild blackberries and 4 lbs of peaches to make into jam… :)

  • Hi! I also love those jars; I must confess I put so many things in them and have them out on my counter because they are so great looking. I have baking soda in one, my soap making supplies, carob choc chips, oats, raisons, home made moisturizer cream…each time I go to the right store I buy a couple, even the small one’s which sit empty because they are so cute!
    Like you, I have peaches that are waiting their turn and probably getting impatient. Wish I had your honey, peach recipe, is it in your canning book. I am very interested in acquiring that book of yours, soon. Finally getting some red tomatoes, so sauce is next. Have a good day! Sarah

  • Judy says:

    These would be so perfect for fig, bourbon and vanilla bean jam. And the figs are ALMOST ready.

  • Jamie Warner says:

    So beautiful. What a fantastic giveaway. Thank you!

  • Carol says:

    I can see these as a beautiful way to display my Bog Blueberry Jam, my Spiced Red Plum Butter, and Thimbleberry Jam.

    bacon jam
    tomato jam
    blueberry… anything

    I’m dying to make some more fig jalapeno jam before the figs are gone. Made a small batch to test in case it was…too unique but it was amazing with cheese and crackers.

  • Kari K says:

    I think a strawberry vanilla jam would be fabulous in these jars.

  • Salmon! :)

  • Gloria says:

    Mustard!!!! and more tomato jam.

    In my weck jars I usually can jams that are pretty colors (peach and strawberry are my favorite, black berry is good too) so when they are out on the table they can act as a centerpiece.

    Those spiced peaches sound delightful! I’d love to do some sort of peach-preserving, with ginger!

  • Flip says:

    The jars are so pretty that storing things in them comes to mind when not using them for jams, jellies or sauces. Chutney would be great too.

  • Katie Frey says:

    We still have tons of cucumbers to make into pickles! I’d also like to try some jams!

  • Natalie says:

    My friend’s mother use to make an awesome spicy ginger peach jam (and would mail me a jar every year). She has passed and I never got the recipe. I would use these jars to recreate her recipe (or at least attempt to).

  • Brenda says:

    Blackberry jam!

    I would pickle some beets, carrots and/or okra in the bigger jars; tomato and/or peach/lavender jam in the smaller jars. Delish.

  • Tonya Thomas says:

    I have always wondered how to incorporate these type of jars in canning. I remember them as a kid, and just loved them. Well except for the old style ones snapping my fingers..haha.

    These jars look great! I’d like to try using them. I like
    pickling veggies.

  • Deb C says:

    Because I think Weck Jars are beautiful and decorative, I like to use them for food that will be out on the table, like jams and jellies or preserved fruit. I also take melon balls of different colors layered into a Weck Jar to work for a snack.

  • kate-v says:

    The neighbor’s peach tree is going great, our Fuji apple is loaded and the tomatoes and cucumbers are popping out like crazy. Also, there are only two of us now so the smaller jar – instead of the quart of which I have so many – is just too big. I’d can some nice peach preserves and toward the end of peach season start a bourbon-peach sauce – after all it’s getting toward the cold weather again and that’s when I like a bourbon-fruit sauce and it needs a little lead time. The apples — they are great right off the tree, but we cannot eat that many and I cannot resist apple sauce or apple butter in bread. Cucumbers: make pickles of course – even now I keep them on hand in the refrigerator made fresh for snacking or just as a side at the table. Tomatoes canned fresh or cooked down for sauce just waiting to be turned in spaghetti sauce or soup or put into a winter stew sets me dreaming about cold weather suppers. My grandma used to put up what she called chilli sauce – made with tomatoes, onions and apples that is out of this world – sometimes I use other sweet fruits in addition to or instead of the apples. That some of of the canning I’d do with these beautiful jars. Good luck to all who enter and may your canning deliciously feed you in the months to come.

  • Erin R. says:

    We always manage to get our hands on some backyard apples in the fall and I’ll make a nice, big batch of apple butter in my little Weck jars. Love them!

  • Brandy says:

    I’ve never used Weck jars, but I do need to make some more cranberry sauce.

  • Jules says:

    I’d like to pickle tomatoes in these

  • Patty says:

    Truly, Weck jars are so pretty that I wouldn’t just use them for canning ~ though I’d use them for that, too! We store everything in glass, because living in the tropics brings lots of bugs! My only Weck jar is sitting next to my stove right now full of local sea salt. It needs some more friends!

  • dona says:

    I’ve always admired Weck jars and been afraid of them. Why? Ridiculous. We’re in high stone fruit season in my area and I’d love to make some peach jam in these lovely jars!

  • Kendra says:

    I would love to get the recipe for my grandmother’s “priceless” apricot jam, and put that in the jars. I think she has a version with hot peppers, too.

  • Tiffany says:

    I would be very selfish with the weck jars and use them for fig preserves knowing full well that the kids will not eat them (cue evil laugh…muhahaha). Every time we’d open a jar, my husband and I would reminisce about our childless trip to Umbria where we reveled in the number of scrumptious dishes using fig preserves.

    I sure would love to use these jars for some sweet, chin drippin peaches!

  • Peggy Green says:

    What wouldn’t I want to preserve in Weck jars? I’ve got a refrigerator full of cucumbers that need pickling, a freezer full of fruit from this seasons gluttonous harvest at my local u-pick berry farm, plus some beech rose hips that I collected on my vacation in Rhode Island. I was planning on making rose hip jam. Never done it before, but no harm done trying! I think the jam would look lovely in those Weck jars!

  • Alyson says:

    I think I’d start with tomatoes. I’ve never canned before!

  • holly says:

    Ohhh what beautiful jars! Thank you for the opportunity, I have always admired them. I would love to fill them with medicinal herbs and place them in my newly finished two hundred year old cabinet.

    I will can all sorts of yumminess with these including apple sauce and apple cider jelly. But will also use to store our dried fruits!

  • Amber says:

    Oh, peaches! There are some lovely peaches on my counter right now, received from a farm in Georgia. They are the best I’ve had in years! I think that if I had more, I’d make up a batch of peach butter. Too good on toast, crepes, or icecream.
