Giveaway: All the Weck Jars (really, all of them)

I get asked a lot of questions from readers about ingredients, techniques, and tools of the trade, but Weck jars make the top of the list for the most inquiries.

Made in Germany and distributed in North America by, these pretty vessels are used in a dozen different ways in my kitchen. They are frequently featured in my Instagram feed and on the blog, which usually results in a flurry of questions about sourcing the jars.

Today I’m very excited to offer a giveaway sponsored by The winner will receive two of every single Weck jar available! That’s a total of 52 beautiful jars, in every shape and size.

Now one can hardly write a cookbook titled Brown Eggs and Jam Jars without obsessing somewhat over jars. I own hundreds, vintage and new, and they are used daily in my kitchen.

I can jams and jellies with Weck jars, stuff them with pickles and store my pantry ingredients in them, too. Salads to go? Weck’s 3/4 L Mold jars come in very handy for layered salads.

Today’s post showcases a handful of recipes from my cookbook that feature Weck jars. If you’ve already bought the book, you can bookmark these recipes to make, perhaps with a few jars of your own.

Above? My Rosy Grapefruit and Pomegranate Spritzers, presented in the oh-so-versatile 1/4 L Cylindrical jar, served out of the 1L juice jar.

My refrigerator occasionally shows up in my Instagram feed and even has its own hashtag, #simplebitesrefrigerator. It seemed only right to include a fridge shot in the cookbook too!

This image is from the chapter on Pantry Staples and features my Homestead Homemade Yogourt in Weck’s Mold jars. Also pictured, Strawberry Honey Jam and Quick Marinated Golden Beets, both in beautiful Tulip jars.

When one has access to fresh eggs as I do most of the year, homemade mayonnaise is a must for sandwiches, dips, and creamy salad dressings. I store mine in Weck jars of all sizes; above is the 1/2 L Tulip jar.

All Weck jars can also be accessorized with plastic Keep Fresh Covers for refrigerator storage. They are handy for easy access to pickles, applesauce and condiments like the mayo above.

  13. I was all set to say the 1/5 tulip jar, until I checked out the web page. I had never seen the deco jars–and they are all so cute. I definitely prefer the 1/5 deco jar!!

  14. I love them all with that fine rolled rim but the Deco jars are my favorite. I see them filled with brightly colored jellies like jewels shining on the shelf.

  19. I love those tulip jars too! So cute.

  20. Omg! The tulip jars! Love them!

  21. I love all Weck jars, but have not had an opportunity to use them – just have lusted from afar.

    I think my favourite is the 1/5 L Deco jars. I can just picture my vanilla rhubarb preserves in them!

  29. I must admit I have never seen these jars, the look is so much more pleasing on all styles. I could use them for a variety of good designs and display. I began canning a lot more last year, not an expert yet in some fruits. Will try some different recipes this year.

  31. The deco jars I really like. Missed adding to my previous post.

  32. I think the shape and size I would like to try is the mini mold 760 with a 5.4 fl oz capacity. I’m trying to figure a good shape and size to can apple juice or tomato juice serving size for the lunch of my kids. This one look great.

    Ball, Bernardin 250ml is often a little bit too much for them, and shape of the 125ml is not really appeling for the purpose of drinking juice.

  41. Honestly all of them are my favorite, but since I have never been able to afford to try them I would have to say that I lust after the wine bottle shape to try making homemade ginger beer in.

  42. Debbie Schwab says

    I love the 1 L tulip jars for fermented veggie storage.
