Ball Fresh Preserving, a brand of Newell, is celebrating 135 years of Ball Jars with the reintroduction of the brand’s vintage aqua blue jars. The brand has also launched new recipes, and additional new canning products, in time for peak produce season.
The Collector’s Edition Ball Aqua Vintage Jars are designed with the aesthetics of the past and feature rounded shoulders, aqua color and the Ball logo that was used from 1910-1923. Ball Aqua Vintage Jars are available in half pint, pint, and quart sizes.
Other new introductions include the new Ball Preserving Starter Kit, an all-in-one solution designed for first time canners that includes all the essential tools for easy preserving.
Meanwhile, the new Ball Leak-Proof storage lids are perfect for anyone who loves using Ball Jars for carrying food and drinks on-the-go. The lids are also freezer safe for jams, sauces and soups, and the airtight seal is ideal for storing herbs and spices. The new Ball Utensil Set is also available for canners looking to replace utensils.
To provide further inspiration, Ball Fresh Preserving is also releasing a series of fun, seasonal recipes featuring unique flavors that cannot be purchased in the store, including Peach Almond Jam, Plum Habanero Salsa, and Tomato Red Pepper Kasundi, and others.
“There truly is nothing like the pride you experience from creating a flavor that is completely homemade,” said Matt Christensen, director of brand marketing, Ball Fresh Preserving. “As we celebrate the 135th anniversary of the Ball Jar, we’re excited to introduce a variety of new recipes and products that are an ode to the past and will inspire new and experienced canners to make the most of the peak produce season.”
