If you make preserves, chutney's and pickles etc, don't throw away old jam jars in the recycle bin. Clean them in hot soapy water so that you can remove the label, then store them away until they are needed.
When they are required you will need to sterilise the jars. Put the oven onto about 100c, clean the jars again in hot soapy water and place into the oven for about 10 minutes. Once finished take out of the oven and allow them to cool down then fill them with your goodies.
