- Ball Utensil Starter KitA few cheap, plastic tools that will make life easier when getting started canning.
- Ball Wide Mouth Jar LidsKeep some extra lids on hand, since they can be used for canning only once (they can still be reused if freezing or storing dry goods).
- Ball Wide-Mouth Pint JarsAlso good for freezing 2-cup portions (just don't use for canning after they've been frozen).
- Ball Wide-Mouth Quart JarsNot just for canning, they're great for all kinds of kitchen storage! I prefer the wide-mouth jars, since they're easier to fill, empty, and clean.
