|25 two- ounce jars of jelly for diabetics|
Did you expect a list of items that I am purging from my home? Not the jars, just the contents must go.
All these were given to me by Charlie who did not like them. I don't like them. Exbf refuses to take them home to empty them. So, they have sat on my counter in a cardboard box for a year while I beg him to take them home, even if only a few at a time. I am sick of the box. I want my counter back.
Sure, I could put these in a cabinet, but I never suspected it would take him this long to take them home one.at.a.time! He dug in his heels on this. I am sure I could unload them on someone who would appreciate them. But, I want the jars! People do not return jars anymore, not even Ball jars when they get the product inside for free!. Sad.
So, I will open all of these and put them in two larger jars, Orange Diet Marmalade in one jar and Strawberry Jam in the other. These were made in France and Austria. hmmm So, exbf will only have two jars instead of 25. heh heh heh. I am tricky like that. I dread this chore tonight! Okay, this stuff is nasty, so it will go to the hens and see if they like it. YUCK
Why do I want two-ounce jars and so many? These will be little samples of my jelly-making. People exclaim that they would love to taste whatever strange jelly I am making--red clover or Jamaica Banana Pineapple Mango Rum Jam. This will be my contribution to assuage their curiosity.
Also, I want to send samples of spices I dry to my daughter.
These will fit nicely in a bottom drawer and be useful, convenient, yet out of the way.
Note: I got this as an email response: "A present is the recipient's to do what he/she wants to do with it." In the South, returning canning jars is a cultural thing. We know to return jars, especially when the giver of the canning states so when the jar is given. If the jar of food is given as a Christmas gift, it is nice to return the jar.
Do you find that people don't return your canning jars? Do you do like I do and just not give anything to those people anymore?
