When we were in California on our honeymoon, Joel found these Weck canning jars at a store in the Ferry Building in San Francisco. We liked the idea of using these jars for a few reasons. One is that they are air tight. The other reason is because they are something we found on our travels. I thought it would be nice to be able to look at my spice rack and be reminded of our honeymoon. I bought one "080 Mini Mold" jar and decided to look around online for them when we got home. I ended up ordering 2 cases (24 jars) from the Weck Canning website. Their customer service was amazing. I called to order and got an actual human after 2 rings. She was very polite and friendly, and she even called me back a little later to tell me that they were able to ship them out that day! I ordered these on Wednesday at about 3 in the afternoon. I got them today, Friday, at about 11 in the morning.
I couldn't wait to open them, wash them, and fill them with my spices. I used a silver sharpie marker to write the name of the spice on the jar. I planned to put them in my drawer, which makes things so much more organized. But, now I am having a problem. They are so nice looking (in my opinion) that I feel like hiding them in a drawer is wasting their visual appeal! I can't wait to have a kitchen with wall space so that we can build a shelf for these jars!!
