Purple Canning Jars from Ball. Purrrrrpleeee.

I have to say that when I found out that Ball was making purple canning jars, I might have let out a little "squeeee!"

Purple is my favorite color, so of course I had to have some jars. Of course. I mean, I already had a few blue and green jars from previous years.

While my desire for purple jars is all about the color, there's a good reason I think serious canners might want to use jars of different colors.

Can you guess?

How about this? Use a different color every year, or every batch - it's an easy visual way to make sure you use the oldest product first. Of course you should label your jars, but if you're color-coding, you can tell without having to read the labels.

Or, you can use different colors to indicate which jars are spicy and which are mild.

Or which ones you're keeping and which you're giving away.

Or anything else that you want to color code.

Or ,,, you tell me. Why do you want canning jars in different colors?

Who's it for: Anyone who does any canning or uses jars for storage.

Pros: Color! These are standard ball jars, but with color

Cons: Some foods might look weird in colored jars.

Wishes: More colors! More colors!

    I totally bought some the minute I saw them on Amazon.
    I haven't used them yet, but I WILL.

    I agree that some things might look punky with the purple, but I'm going to use these for stuff like berry jams or other dark colored stuff.

    As for giving them away?'ll see.
