Some cosmetic changes in preparation for larger site changes in the works.


Steve, I have had much success in shipping jars of jelly/jam. . .

by using newspaper. I get a box that is several inches bigger than the stacked jars. The jars are shipped with the rings on. Pack the bottom with firmly crumpled news paper, to keep the jars 1-2 inches from the bottom. Start placing jars, packing firmly crumpled newspaper, and plenty of it, around each to keep the jars at least 1-2 inces firmly apart. Keep all jars at least 1-2 inches away from the sides of the box. Make sure you seal the box well with good shipping tape.

This has worked for me; everything ships well and no jars have been lost. The only problem is I cannot afford to ship stuff anymore--the rates have gone up so much! Or maybe it's all that paper. . . ? ;-)
