Home Canners To Have Plenty Of Jars Home canners don't need to worry this year — there should be enough jars for everyone. Manufacturers producing jars and lids are working around the clock, hoping to meet the demands of the increasing number of home canners. Because of increased work hours and plenty of materials, manufacturers believe they can adequately supply the market. But consumers must do their part too, and not hoard jars and lic?s. The manufacturers are sending their supplies first to states where canning begins earliest. So Iowa will receive its supply later than Southern states. Complete units, jars with lids, will come first. Replacement supplies, such as jar lid covers, will arrive a little later. This year, for nostalgic homemakers, one company is producing blue jars with the glass and wire lids in honor of the Bicentennial. However, these special jars will be more expensive than the regular canning units. Our 1975 car and truck clean up is in full swing.
