One more reason to love glass jars–they don’t contain ingredients that can leach into foods like plastics do. I’ve switched all my old plastic storage containers for glass containers. I love the old-fashioned canning jars with the rubber gaskets in your last photo. When we lived in Africa we learned never to throw anything away, and that’s when I started saving jelly jars to use again. Bonne Maman jelly jars are particularly attractive for storing small quantities, and I love to use them for homemade lotions and essential oil concoctions.
