Do you always wonder “what can I do with all these leftover jars”? Don’t worry, we can help!
We are biased, but we believe that the Italian glass jars that Chandler Honey uses for our products are too beautiful not to use again. In general, glass jars are exceptional material that can be reused many times without damage. Here’s some inspiration to get as much use out of them as possible.
Why are glass jars better?
- Environmentally friendly

1. Overnight Oatmeal or Chia Pudding
The Chandler Honey medium glass jars are perfect for overnight oatmeal or chia pudding. They are the perfect size and it’s opening is just enough for a spoon to fit through. Great thing as well is that you don’t need to clean out the honey, it can be a great addition as an ingredient!
2. Homemade Salad Dressing
Forget the bowl, just shake it up in our honey jars! Chandler Honey’s Orange Grove and Cocktail Collection can be a great addition to your salad dressings! After finishing the jars you don’t need to rinse them out, just add the ingredients in and give it a shake.
3. Homemade Simple Syrup
Similarly to homemade salad dressing, why not make your own simple syrup at home? Add equal parts warm water and honey (sugar works too!) and give the jars a few shakes. This is also our favourite way to clean the jars for some of our other suggestions.
4. Reusing for Food
Glass jars have been used by many people to store their food whether it is wet or dry. Using Glass jars for fermented food such as veggies and fruits helps to keep the smell away from your fridges and keeps the food from going bad faster.

7. Garden Seed Storage
As garden planters ourselves, we always find it hard to keep all my seeds organized and prepared for the summer. We always end up losing them during the winter season. After finishing our jars of honey, we rinse them with warm water, dry them up, and store our seeds inside them.
