Welcome back to another of our product spotlight blogs. In this blog we are taking a look at one of our newest jars. The 350ml Le Parfait Familia Wiss Terrine Jar is our first ever jar with sealing disc and screw cap and we are really excited to share it with you!
We have a wide range of fantastic glass jars. But like with all our ranges we are always looking for new products to help us expand and improve them. We've been experimenting with a few new jars and are very excited to bring the first one to our online store.
This style of jar is originally from the South of France and is used for preserving seasonal vegetables and fruits. It's a classic in the home preserving world and we're sure you will have seen similar jars in your travels. Maybe you own some of your own mason jars?
Each jar is supplied with a separate metal sealing disc and screw cap. The straight sides make it perfect for patés and meats. We find jars with straight jars tend to sell the best with customers as they are able to get all the produce out without any getting stuck in the corners!
The jars themselves are of the highest quality. With thick clear glass and a nice weight to them. You can tell they are made to last. And they should last you many years of canning. Just remember to change the sealing discs each time!
Sealing Disc and Screw Top Lids
The lids on this jar are unique to our other jars as they are screw top as opposed to twist off. The difference is subtle but it makes a huge difference depending on what you are creating to put in the jars.
Most jams and chutneys are able to be packaged in a standard jar with a twist off lid. But if you are using a food preserving method like a water bath or pressure canner it's best to stick with a sealing disc and screw screw top lid. If you want to learn more about canning. Check out our guide to canning blog.
100mm Sealing Discs
The 100mm sealing discs are supplied with the jars but replacements can be purchased through our website.
Each time the jar is reused for another season of canning or preserving. A new disc needs to be used. This will ensure your food stays as fresh as possible.
We sell the replacement discs in packs of 12. These can be purchased at any time. However we recommend buying an extra pack along with your jars to save on postage costs.
One of our recent blogs was a guide on food preservation, also know as canning. This style of jar is perfect for all sort of canning and food preservation.
We've been getting in to making the most of seasonal produce and we've found these jars are perfect for aiding with that. Combined with a pressure canner, these jars are able to preserve all sort of low acidic foods. Like lots of vegetables we grow in the garden.
