Regular and wide-mouth Mason-type threaded, canning jars with self-sealing lids are the best choice. They are available in 1/2 pint, 1 pint, 1-1/2 pint, 1 quart, and 1/2 gallon jars and may be used for canning very acid juices. With careful use and handling, canning jars may be reused many times, requiring only new lids for each use.
