Please understand that I recognize it is not canning season by any means. BUT, I plan on canning applesauce for Christmas gifts and will not take no for an answer. I have seen canning jars around the city all year long, but not recently. Does anyone know of any place in Chicago that may still be selling canning jars? If I must, I will resort to buying online, but I would prefer to just stop somewhere and pick them up. Thanks for your help in this impossible matter!
