The number of people who are learning to preserve their own food has gone up (no surprise there, way to go first time gardeners!), but the supply of new canning jars and canning lids hasn’t increased nearly enough; both lead times and manufacturers’ prices keep going up.
A Mason jar, also known as a canning jar or fruit jar, is a glass jar used in home canning to preserve food. It was named after American tinsmith John Landis Mason, who patented it in 1858. The jar’s mouth has a screw thread on its outer perimeter to accept a metal ring or “band”.
It all began last year when the pandemic hit in early 2020. Stuck at home, people picked up gardening, then canning their harvest. “That led to a supply shortage of canning lids,” said Suzanne Driessen, University of Minnesota Extension food safety educator.
