How many jars?

Coastal Bend

Get off my lawn.
Got a couple lbs. Comoys #1 and how many jars would I need to put it in? Not for real long term
Isn't that kind of an inexact question? A couple of pounds? How many jars? Guess I'd say "A bunch" or "As many as it takes."

If it is not for real long term I get a "deck" or two of 8 ounce "jelly jars" -- that's a dozen. For me a dozen handles roughly a half pound.

Another reason I use the small-mouth half pint jars is they look good in these organizers that I pick up at Michael’s... View attachment 39555
That is impressive. I find that I don't have the time, or better put, I don't take the time, to produce those cool labels.
I typically use pint wide mouth jars for the cellar and 1/2 pint jars for the smoking shelf. I usually pack a pound into four jars, more to less. So far, so good.
