Canning Question

Where does one go to buy canning supplies? I have a freezer full of strawberries that are just desperate to become jam and I'd like to can them. I've never canned before; usually, I make freezer jam.

Walmart used to have them. In fact a lot of the regular grocery stores used to have them at this time of year.
And, old time hardware stores. I got my jar lifter (which I still have but have never used since coming over here)from some independent hardware store back home.

Keep an eye out for garage sales too.

Yes, WalMart and Ace Hardware. ..and even most grocery stores will have the jars. Look in the baking aisle near the floor.

Ha, ha, I wish. :) The only pay I get for my jam is hugs & kisses.

Ooh, I just saw a canning kit marked down at Big Lots. It had a selection of pint jars, lids, canning tongs and the Ball Blue Book, all packaged together for around $12. I *knew* I should have bought it for someone! ;)

Oh, Meredith, just what I need. :( Maybe I should check out my Big Lots. That sounds like a good idea.
