I'm glad your hand is getting better, you must have been quite limited since you damaged it.

I'll try that again!

its not too bad; as long as I don't knock it which causes indescribable pain.
Managed to make the rabbit casserole and some fruit chutney today so you can see it is not too limiting and I am back to work tomorrow; actually can't wait!

Do you have a 'The Range' store near you?  I've found them to be quite cheap on le parfait syle jars when I made sloe gin a couple of years back.

Otherwise these people seem ok: http://www.justpreserving.co.uk/-c-3000274.html

I noticed Sarson's pickling vinegar is in large jars which could be used for storage, and the vinegar is clear so it presumably could be used for cleaning instead of being thrown out. I wouldn't use it for pickling! I was given some 1/2L le parfait jars for Christmas so I hope I won't be short of jars again this summer, but it is small jars for giving away that are always in short supply.

I'll hang on to them - in case you change your mind!  Have you tried 'Freecycle'?  Or putting an ad in your local charity shop?  I once saw one - inveterate jam jar collector in urgent need of jam maker. 

I'll try that again!
