Canning Jar Sizes

There are many manufacturers,sizes and styles of canning jars available today and we use a few different kinds. Below you will see a chart of the different sizes and capacities of the common jars we use. There are 2 different styes we use which are small mouth and wide mouth. The small mouth is best for pour-able product and the wide mouth is best for whole foods. There is no other difference in the jars other than the opening at the top and the tops and caps you use will be a different size as well. Below you can see the Half Pint and the Quarter Pint jars are both wide mouth. The Quart Jar and the Pint jar are both small mouth jars! You can use what ever you have to can whatever you want!
