Canning Labels - Your favorites and why!

meatn3 | Sep 11, 2012 08:41 AM

Part of the joy I get from canning is seeing my jars lined up on the shelf. They jewel tones of jelly, the visible spices hinting at the explosion of flavor within a container of pickles, green beans standing tall like a forest of tree trunks.

The lovely symmetry goes to hell the minute my (as my Grandmother said) sad chicken scratched labels were seen. Try as I might my handwriting just get worse.

To this end I have settled on a computer printed label which is placed over the lid, under the ring. This year I finally purchased a circle cutting gizmo and it just takes seconds to cut out each one. My favorite label is the round style Pastel Palette Canning Label from a free download from Hewlett Packard.

What works for you?
