What will you use your Kilner for?

Hi there Kilner Club member! Take a look at some of our inspiring ideas for your Kilner jars below….

It’s a brilliant time to pickle! Maybe you’re a seasoned pro or maybe you’ve never heard of pickling at all… don’t worry we’ve got you covered.
Last week we celebrated World Pickling Week and shared a host of new recipes and tutorials on how to pickle. Check it out HERE.

We love using our jars to store a range of dried fruits, seeds and herbs.
It keeps them fresh and always ready for when you’re on the go or even on your desk at work. Be inspired HERE.
