In response to the many comments and emails I received, I thought this would be the easiest way to answer questions:)
- I purchased these jars at William Sonoma just for these pictures as I only bought 4 to create this blog post and share the idea (no, I have not done my Tishrei baking yet!:) However, once you get slightly addicted to these cute little jars, like I did, you will start to see them everywhere! (At the store, each one was $2.55 I believe).
- You can purchase them on Amazon and other similar ones called “Ball” mason Jars from Walmart or even hardware stores.
- The Weck Jar pictures above yield about 10 – 12 jars of baked honey cake, using my recipe in the recipe section. Each jar is a 5.4oz capacity.
- If you use the ‘Ball’ mason jars you will need to use slightly more batter overall (still filling only halfway) since they are a little bigger. (see second photo from my daughters Bas Mitzvah favor last summer, a week before Rosh Hashanah.)
See below for more info about the Weck Jar.
Weck glass jars have been a mainstay in European kitchens since 1900, Weck jars are still a reliable favorite of European home cooks for preserving and storing foods.
- For preserving foods using boiling-water-bath canning; also useful for storing dry food staples in the pantry.
- Distinctive silhouettes make jars attractive enough to bring to the table for serving.
- Each clear glass jar features a glass lid with rubber ring and two rustproof stainless-steel clamps for creating an airtight seal.
- Wide-mouth, tapered shape is easy to fill.
- Seal is easy to check at a glance: the pull-tab on the rubber ring should face downward.
- Replacement rubber rings and clamps are available.
