    Question canning/bottling jars for jam making?

    hi everyone,


    I have one of those obscure obsessing-over-details questions.


    I got into making jam etc. while I've been in America, but I didn't do it when I lived in NZ so I didn't pay attention to the availability of supplies.


    I did a bit of googling but couldn't find what I was looking for. So, my question is:


    Is it easy to find pectin (liquid or powder) and canning jars?



    By canning jars, I mean small (8-ounce) glass jars with 2 piece lids (flat rubber seal lid, and screw band).


    thanks!

    Not a problem, you can get most of the stuff in the supermarkets, my local rural supermarket stocks all that you need for making jam...

    I made my first batch this summer and didn't have to venture into the city to get any of the bits

    The jars you describe are exactly the jars I bought locally.
