Golden Harvest Canning Jars – History and Background
The original Golden Harvest Canning jars were made in the late 1970s by the Glass Containers Corporation in Fullerton, California.
Golden Harvest jars were actually made by Ball until they spun off the canning portion of the business. They still are in a way, as the spin off, Jarden Home Brands still makes them along with Ball, Bernardin and Kerr glass canning jar labels.
They are cheaper in price, and are often sold at places like Target, but seem to be well liked by people and they work just fine.
If you need an affordable canning jar Wal-Mart carries both pint and quart jars. Sometimes they are not available in the store, so call ahead and see, you may have to pre-order.
