|Penny Candy Jars|
I found these great jars on clearance the other day and one of my local lunch haunts. I think they call the shape "Penny Candy" jars? These are a bit smaller than their original counterparts.
For us, the better part is that they have screw top lids (the originals have a lid that just sort of sits on top). Those will keep them sealed tightly and since we aren't at the farm all the time, we won't have to worry about bugs, moths, and mice getting into whatever we put in them.
Of course, therein lies the big conundrum. We haven't decided what to put in them yet but we will eventually. We have many other jars with things like rice and lentils and flours, sugars etc. These need something special in them I think. Nuts? Dried fruit? Actual Candy?
As time goes by, and we are out there more often, we'll run across something we need to put in them that we just can't live without, though I still think candy is a good idea. Maybe some of that old school fun 'retro candy'?
