Additional Uses for Glass Canning Jars

Glass Canning JarsJars of varying sizes and shapes are often collected by consumers and reused multiple times for differing purposes. Some common uses for empty glass canning jars are: vases, candle holders, drinking glasses, and at-home canning.

Canning jars received their name from the previously common practice of storing and preserving fresh food and perishables which were harvested from a home garden. The practice of storing these items in airtight jars to preserve them was commonly called ‘canning,’ although the food was not stored in cans. Glass jars with lids that had an airtight seal were the most popular for the canning process.

There are many more uses for empty canning jars, but those are the most basic uses for an empty canning jar. A large portion of the population refers to these empty containers as mason jars, and they were previously very popular in the South as drinking glasses.
