I've never actually checked the date on eggs when I use them and I've never had a bad egg. Ever. But once you mix them with something else, the condition of the eggs is irrelevant.

Thank you Andy and Taxlady for the info on the mason jars. I'm definitely going to get some of those.

I'm so bummed out. Just bought a 12-pack of pint mason jars at Bed Bath. The mouth wasn't wide enough for my immersion blender to go through I'll have to try something else.

Aw, phooey. Did you get "wide-mouthed" jars? I would imagine the store will take them back.

BTW, the reason I want to use a salsa jar is because it has a one piece lid. Those two piece lids are a nuisance when you don't need two pieces. I know I can buy one piece "storage lids" for regular Mason jars, but I don't think they make them for wide-mouthed jars.

I use a Smucker's one pound natural peanut butter jar.

I use well-washed Smucker's PB jars for LOTS of food storage! I've gotten to the point where I save empty containers to use as vessels for foods I'm giving to someone. That way they don't have to return it. My favorite go-to right now is the kinda-quart size tub left behind after I finish up the Greek Fage that came with the container.

They do have the wide mouth, I have a package of them. Check Lehmans.com

You can probably exchange them for the wide-mouth jars.

I returned them. Bed Bath doesn't carry the pint size wide mouthed jars. I would have to order them on amazon or some other website. The salesperson at BBB said he buys them individually at Whole Foods for $1.99.
