1 litre kilner type jars £1.00 at ASDA

Found 8th Sep 2013
Already picked up a couple of these to make some blackberry brandy earlier this week at Wilko for £3. Sainsburys and morrisons also had them for £3.50 so at £1 (or even full price at £1.45) these are a steal. Looks like I'll be making an extra litre of blackberry brandy now...

Sorry can't comment whether national or local. These were at Ipswich Stoke Park ASDA.

Assume this must be national as also £1 online.

Not a Kilner Jar (which are screw top) but a clip top jar. Still good value at £1.

Ps. Before anyone says it, yes I do know that Kilner now make clip tops too.

Love to know how to BlackBerry brandy.

Can anyone link me to these online? I can only see £3 ones but I'm obviously not looking in the right place.
Thanks!

Oh for some reason they are in the Asda grocery shopping section, not the Asda direct kitchenware - meaning minimum order is £25 and no in store collection.

Wow, learn something new on the web everyday!

Never heard of a "Kilner Jar" until this thread!

Voted +HOT just for the education

I saw these the other day in the Hull Mount Pleasant store, they had plenty on the shelves, along with a lot of other reduced cookware.

Have 3 of these for my different blends of coffee. Keeps the coffee fresh and stores well!

these was this price 2 years ago as I bought them when house moved for my tea bags, sugar etc.

The blackberry brandy recipe I've used is:

1 litre of brandy (cheap stuff will do)
450g fresh or frozen blackberries (defrosted if frozen)
225g sugar (preferably fine as dissolves quicker, but granulated will do)

1. Wash and dry blackberries if using own picked
2. Split blackberries and sugar equally between two jars
3. Top up brandy equally into both jars and shake or stir with a wooden spoon

For the first week give a shake each day. After this once a week. After three months strain into empty sterilised bottles using a funnel lined with muslin (coffee filter might work but the brandy will be quite syrupy so might not go through).

The longer you can leave it bottled the better it will taste, but will still be lovely immediately after straining. If the flavour is still bitter you can dissolve a bit of sugar at a time until it tastes as you like it.

Oh and don't leave the blackberries in longer than 3 months as the cores will give the brandy an unpleasant woody flavour if left too long.

I've made a couple of litres which will no doubt get demolished at Christmas

Thanks

These are brilliant, I keep tea(s) and biscuits in these and they stay fresh for a long time. Also used one to make lemoncello with recently and soaked lemon gratings in grain alcohol for about 6 weeks, worked a treat.

Great, I can finally do the 500 or so mason jar crafts I have pinned on pinterest.

Did you also know that Jeremy Clarkson is a distant relative of the Kilner's?

Superb, thank you, just picked up a couple

Heat added, I've just picked a whole heap of blackberries to make jam so these will be perfect to store in although the brandy sounds a good option :-)
