Equipment: Storage or preserving jars

« PreviousNext » Equipment List

The most well known of these types of jars is the Kilner jar, a rubber-sealed, screw-topped jar, named after their British inventor - John Kilner. French Kilner jars are similar but have a metal hinge and a rubber seal rather than a screw top. They are used for storing and preserving home-made jams, marmalades and other relishes. They are also used for pickling food such as eggs, onions and garlic.
