Back in October, I complained in a post about how difficult it was to find canning jars for a decent price in New York City and the surrounding boroughs. I have no idea where to buy canning jars in this area, no grocery store or big box store that I've ever been in sells them. I had a client meeting near Union Square and I popped into this housewares store in between meetings to kill some time and saw that they were selling cases of Ball canning jars. Cool!! However, I laughed out loud when I saw the prices though.
