A Canner's Inheritance

My Grandmother recently gifted me a box of my Great Grandmother's canning jars. Many of them are the old blue glass with rubber sealing rings or glass with metal clasps over the top. They were so beautiful that I couldn't resist sharing them here.


"Improved Gem: Made in Canada" These jars must have travelled with my great grandmother from the old family farm in Alberta.


Just look at that glass lid!


This one was the treasure of them all. It reads "Buffalo Lithia Water" and has a glass stopper for the top.

I can't help imagining all the good things these jars have held over the years and all the family meals where they filled everyone's bellies. What a wonderful inheritance to have handed down to me!
