I don't claim to have pretty jars, but my labels are infinitely more practical than arranging a bunch of jpgs on a page, printing them, cutting them out and still needing to write on them. And they come off easily when you've eaten the contents and want to use the jar again, unlike many of the labels that come with the jars when you buy them.
Incidentally, I bought about 6 dozen pint jars this year and they don't even include labels this year. Huh.
Here are the tools you'll need.
- clear tape
- cash register paper roll
Lovely, no? Well...no, but it's simple and practical and I've had to do hundreds of them this year. I've still got three bags of apples in the basement and the tomatoes were not a total loss and are ripening all the time, but if they don't get done, I'm not going to stress. Life is too short and the pantry pretty darn full.
How do you label your jars? With labels worthy of gift-giving?
