Great idea! What size are the Smuckers PB jars?

Would those lids fit the wide mouthed pint jars made by Ball?

That's a ridiculous price. You can get them at most grocery stores, Walmart, Michael's, Target, etc. They're all over the place these days. I'd expect to pay about $15 or less for a dozen.

Yes. They're standard sizes.

Wow sounds like Whole Paycheck is taking its customers for a ride. I'm going to see if my local Michael's has them.

If you only want one or two of them, the I don't think $1.99 each is that outrageous. You often get a better deal on buying by the dozen.

And that's only meaningful if you actually need a dozen of them. I wouldn't hesitate to pay $2 each if I only needed 2.

I use them for freezing stock and leftovers and making refrigerator pickles, which I sometimes give away, so I need a constant supply

Well that's good to hear because I don't know what I'll be using them for other than making mayo.

Do you ever make anything that you want to freeze?

In my freezer, right now I have in Ball jars: chicken stock, red salsa, green salsa and leftover soups.

In the fridge, I have: fresh ginger in dry sherry, a half cup of homemade chicken stock (left over from making rice the other day), homemade Dijon-style mustard, homemade spicy beer mustard and homemade apple butter.

I often thaw chicken stock, etc., in the microwave but I don't like heating foods in plastic, so I use the glass jars instead.
